This is the latest incarnation of the legendary component. It has been awarded everything from component of the year to ranking in Stereophile's top 100 most important audio components.
We have this unit on display hand delivered by the builder / designer. Below is the quote from Stereophile ranking this unit #31 most important Audio product. The newest unit, now 23 years it's elder, restablishes it at the top of current preamp design. Liquid, refined, subtle, it is marvelous.
: Audible Illusions Modulus preamplifier First Stereophile review: November 1984 (Vol.7 No.6; also Vol.19 Nos.2 & 9). Even when they went solid-state to drive the speakers, many audiophiles stuck with tubed preamps because of their inherent musicality. Some writers lobbied for the Conrad-Johnson PV1 to be included in this listing, but I finally decided to go for the Audible Illusions because of the sheer length of time it has remained in continuous, if limited, production. In all that time I've never met an unhappy Modulus owner—quite a tribute, given the fickle audiophile nature.
Unit is on display and only has approx. 10 hours of gentle use.
