I bought this preamp in Dec 2018, so it is almost new. It replaced an Audio Research LS17SE.
What impressed me was its dead quiet background and its ability to control all elements of the sound stage, making the resolution superb. The warmth and musicality it gave my setup was excellent. Oh, it also has 6 tubes that you can indulge in tube rolling. If buyer is interested, can include 2 almost new pairs of 12AU7 PSVane tubes (used for less than 20 hours,) and 2 pairs of 12AU7 GE NOS tubes, used for testing. The 4 pairs of tubes will cost an additional $150 when purchased together with the preamp (Paid $455 for tubes). Will sell 4 pairs of tubes separately as a package for $300.
While it is difficult to ignore (& you may even hate!) Ken Deal’s bombastic American pitch in the video, he does make some good points about how well built it is as an analogue device and why it sounds so good.
Warranty is 2 years for original owner only. If the buyer is in Melbourne or in country Victoria, it will be relatively easy for me to lodge a warranty claim with the retailer. However, if the buyer is interstate and prepared to ship this 30 kg package to me to lodge the warranty claim, I will consider the offer. Of course, let’s assume it will run without problems.
Please note that there is no manual, despite being listed as in the box in the electronic copy.
Shipping is extra with original packaging.

Item: supratek syrah preamp
Location: blue mountains
Price: 1600 ono
Item Condition: pretty good. some scratches on LHS as in picture # 4. the volume control also has some scratches on its underside
Reason for selling: NLR

Extra Info: beautiful sounding supratek syrah preamp. this is an early model circa 2001 quite possibly a prototype. it portrays the same beguiling spacious and alive sound that has projected supratek into high end audio. all pio caps (ducons). the rcas on top front are the phono. The line stage is 6SN7s. The phono stage is high gain capable of amplifying low output moving coils and includes a fet, 417A / 5842 and 6GK5 tubes using a variation of the Arthur Loesch phono circuit. 5881s are used in the power supply for shunt regulation and a 5Z4 for rectification. The unit is bog standard apart from an upgraded volume control to Alps Blue, and a balance pot. I will also supply a copy of the circuit diagram. There is a phono input and 3 line level inputs. , tape in / out has been replaced by mick with 2 X RCA outputs so it is bi- ampable. There is also high or low gain and a mute switch. this pre worked beautifully with my tannoy 15" ardens - approx 89dB . not so however with my edgar bass horns which run in at about 103 dB - too much gain / noise . perhaps this may have been better with very low wattage power amps but the lowest i have are 18W. suffice it to say it is not a quiet preamp with its high gain and mick really stretched the tubes out but i found it totally acceptable with the tannoys. less than a year ago the unit was sent to perth and thoroughly checked by mick maloney and all brought back to spec .. fets also just replaced as the originals were out of tolerance . this is a relatively inexpensive entry to what i have found to be rewarding sound through supratek preamps. i also have 3 X Western electric 417As (2 x NOS) available for an extra $125. bunch of spare tubes included - 6gk5 and 5Z4. preference is for a pickup but will consider postage. can deliver to sydney / gold coast / northern NSW
