Item: Valab LCR-1 Mk2 phono stage
Price: $700 (A new LCR-1 costs over $1,300)
Item Condition: As new
Reason for selling: Buying a new DAC and getting a matching phono stage from Abbas Audio in the Ukraine. Upgrades.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
Local pickup only. I will not entertain posting anywhere so only queries for local pickup, or I can drop the phono stage to a Pack & Send if you've an account.
The best sounding phono stage I've been lucky enough to run. This stage is completely transparent and sounds as though it's not even in the sound chain. Not sure if you can ask for better than that, and certainly there's nothing better available at this price point. The LCR-1 is known to compete with phono stages many times its retail price.
From all reports the Mk2 is better sounding than the Mk3 though I can't imagine it would be a large difference.
