FS: Further Price Drop Audio Research Ref 3 Silver w/ Silver handles

Recommended Posts

Item: Audio Research Ref 3
Location: Perth - South of the River
Price: $4300
Item Condition: Used, Excellent 
Reason for selling: No longer required
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

 

Bought this used from Audio Fidelity in September last year (less than 6 months ago).  I changed the handles to silver for the Ref 5 look (looks much better and sounds better too! ;-)

Seriously this preamp sounds as good as they said, I'm selling because there's an opportunity to upgrade to Ref 5.

 

A couple of SNA members advised me not to sell this because they think that The Ref 3 sounds better than the Ref5 and even the Ref6. Unfortunately I have to sell this as I need the money. 

Last listing of Ref 3 on SNA was sold for $5500 so you know this is a bargain.

 

I no longer have the box so local sale is preferred.

I can tell you I have owned all three and at this price the Ref 3 is good value.

Ref 3 better than a Ref 5?

Well I went with the Ref5SE and didn't miss my Ref 3 at all.

It took a Ref 6 to temp me away from the Ref5SE.

Suggest you also give an indication on value hours on your pre-amp.

GLWTS.
