    An excellent pre-amp. Has quite an on-line following - you'll understand why, once you've heard it. :)

    Open, detailed, fast & smooth - just what a good valve pre-amp should be!

    4 line inputs, 1 tape-out and 2 sets of main outputs. All RCA.

    Responds well to fancy power cords.

    Remote control, too.

    A great piece of kit at a bargain price.

    £275 + £8 UK P&P.

    Excellent condition & perfect working order.

    Only selling because my new EAR 802 pre-amp is even better! (& costs a LOT more).

    It would go well with pretty much any power amp - although ones designed for use with passive pre-amps are best avoided as the high sensitivity of these can cause the inevitable low-level valve-hiss from the pre to be intrusive. 'Standard' power amps are just fine.

    IME there's a real touch of musical magic from a good valve pre - and this YS example delivers this very nicely!

    Personally, I think a combo of valve pre and solid state power can work really well.
