I bought this beauty few months ago from an SNA member who bought it from Sydney authorised Audio Research dealer as a store demo unit, condition is as new except one small mark as shown in the photo, you can't really tell unless looking for it.
It works really well with Shelter 901 MC (0.5mv), Lyra Delos MC (0.6mv), Nagaoka MP500 MM (3mv), those are carts I have (had), I believe it would be the best match with MC from 0.5mv to MM (3mv), my finding seems to be inline with reviews on the web. It hasn't get much use as I have other toys, it's from smoke and pet free home, I have the original box so shipping is not a issue.
These were the last owners comments and I personally used for about 20 hours with a clearaudio concerto wood and it was divine bringing my VPI to life. A lovely piece of kit and I am putting up for sale 3 phonos and 2 will go just accumulating too much gear.
It's not short of good reviews on the web, happy to answer what I know.
Please send PM if interested.
e audiophiles often wonder why a certain company replaces a very good piece of equipment. Oftentimes it can be as simple as wanting to freshen up in the product line. Audio Research released the PH6, however, because it betters in every way the model it replaces. It is simply a cleaner window between you and your music and, I'll go out on a limb, the phono stage to beat in its price range. Its sterling sound quality together with its excellent build quality, Audio Research’s reputation and the knowledge that they’ll be around to care for the product well into the future means that purchasing a PH6 can be one of the best investments in your musical life you can make
A Worthy Successor
The PH 6 is an excellent phono preamplifier, offering excellent sonic performance, build quality, and value. In comparison to other phono preamplifiers, both models costing considerably more and less, its price is spot on. The PH 6 also stood up well when compared to ARC’s top-of-the-line REF Phono 2; the lineage is immediately evident. The only potential limitation of the PH 6 may be related to the 58 db gain figure when combined with a handful of very low-output cartridges below .4mv. However, considering the range of excellent cartridges above that figure, finding something you like should not prove difficult.
When going from regular, to large, to super size (PH 6, PH7, REF Phono 2), the listener will find the tonal qualities to be very similar, each increasing model offering more dynamic range, and more low level detail and increased resolution, along with increased functionality. Taking these points into consideration, it’s easy to see why ARC continues to enjoy such a loyal customer base. So whether you are a new customer or legacy customer waiting to trade up, you will enjoy the PH 6.

Extra Info:I’ve had these since 2008 and had them re-foamed 08/08 by Peter @ SpeakerWorks (R.I.P).
It’s time to move on!
There is a bonus as the tweeters are hard to come bye so in this sale I managed to acquire a single Allison 6 speaker as a spare but all you need to do is re-foam the woofer and you can have a centre channel if you need?
The original woofer grilles have been replaced, this is what Allison sent the original owner as a replacement (which are on the speakers), I have the original but damaged woofer grilles in a box to which is also included.
These are not too common here!!
There is some wear and tear on the cabinets the dust is free and the stands not included.

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.
Sadly , due to moving house, I need to sell my Krix Neuphonix and Epicentrix Speakers.... Hardly ever used them, as new condition a couple of years old $3000.00 OR ono... I am located near Sydney NSW they are Black in colour.... I would put up a picture but can't work it out, sorry
Have just aquired a lovely AR77XB TT.
The usual problem it is a 115V 60Hz 300RPM Haydon unit with a 60Hz pulley, therefore runs slow.
I am on the hunt for a 50Hz pulley to correct the dpeed problem, anyone out there have one for sale or know of an option!
I know Vinyl Nirvana has a motor upgrade of a low voltage motor, which I think would fix the speed/voltage/Hz problem, but it is more than the price that I purchased it at with some and somehow does not sit well against its original retail price!
Also how difficult is it to rewire a Grace 707 from the DIN to the cartridge?
