Extra Info: Shame to see this go. Purchased back in March from another SNA'er here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/281378-sold-fs-sonic-euphoria-passive-preamp-plc/
This preamp was the heart of my system. I couldnt have found a more transparent preamp with use on sources that output at least 2v's.
This unit is very solidly built, and near bulletproof and sonically 'invisible' as the previous owner has mentioned.
The dial on the left is for the source switch, middle is for volume attenuation, and the one on the right is to fine tune the volume, essentially giving you
control to around 48 independant volume steps. As it's passive, it doesn't even plug in to the power, and its main parts are 2 switches, a high quality volume control, and 2 tapped, hand-wound transformers.
The tape out RCA's bypasses the volume control totally, so you can use it as a switch. The volume dial is very robust and locks in to the taps solidly, unlike other cheap clicky sounding relays.
Comes with a grounding cable if needed, but sounds best without. It weights about 8kgs. No remote (not that type of preamp)
Donation to SNA upon completion of sale.
I recently bought a LG 4K B8 Oled TV and already had a Sonos play base. The remote for the LG TV does not seem to interact with the Sonos so I am left having to adjust sound through my phone which is not ideal.
Is there a way around this. I believe I might need an infrared remote. Can anyone recommend.

A low cost opportunity to try a passive preamp. If you have a high output source (e.g. CD transport) then this will suit nicely.
Some people warn/worry about the length of interconnect with a passive pre-amp. This unit uses transformers to provide enough "drive" to effectively run over long interconnects, should you require same. The lower the interconnect capacitance, the better, but you knew that already. I have used this device with 8 metre interconnects (12.5pF/ft) between it and the power amp (near the speakers). This will work well with an impedance ratio between source and amp between 50:1 and 100:1 Performance is at a very high level for this expenditure, comparing to active preamps costing a couple of thousand.
