      Item Condition: Used 9/10 - mint; from smoke free home Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Frankston State: VIC Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Downsizing Further information:

      This Modulus 3A was fully reconditioned by USA manufacturer in 2010. Comes with comprehensive manuals, schematics and original AI box. From smoke-free home.

      Current new production Russian EH 6922 tubes are in very good condition, but I will supply five sonically superior spare tubes - Russian NOS 6N23P  made in Voskhod factory. 

      Modulus is well-known for natural sound and outstanding 3D soundstage.

      Tape output buffer designed by famous John Curl.

      Audible Illusions is widely regarded as a reference tube pre-amplifier.
       
      Dick Olsher, The Absolute Sound (2016):  “The L3A line preamp [cheaper version without phono section] distills the best attributes of modern tube sound: swift transients, a detailed presentation, and natural yet non-euphonic textures. It is its insistence on the sonic truth that defines it as a true reference line preamp. The L3A’s ability to retrieve the music’s rhythmic drive and drama make it one of the most sonically persuasive line preamps on the market and one of the best I’ve auditioned over the years at any price.”

      The audiophile guru Arthur Salvatore noted in his list of reference components: "[Modulus] 3 may still be the finest preamplifier with phono available today for the money".

      Georgehifi, Australian designer of renown “Lightspeed Attenuator”, noted: “The AI 3A is one of the best pre’s I’ve heard”.

      120V – requires step-down transformer ($70 Australian Tortech). 
       
      Audible Illusions designed and crafted in the USA and sold directly by the manufacturer. 

      Current model Modulus 3B cost $5495 USD, plus add some 30% for so called “global” shipping to Australia, insurance, import fees, tax and customs fees (which also applies to used electronics) – total $7143 USD which equals to $9940 AUD.
