The 834P may be an innocuous looking piece of “brick” but for any vinyl diehards, this is one of the best sounding phono stage for under $5,000. It is MM and MC compatible and all you need to do is just hit the button on the rear for MM or MC. For this particular unit that is for sale, it is the “Deluxe” version which cost $700 more over the “non-Deluxe” version. The difference between the two is the generous amount of chrome and gold finish found on the Deluxe version versus the all black finish on the non-deluxe version. Gold plated RCA connectors are also used on the Deluxe version instead of the regular RCA connectors on the non-deluxe version. The 834P uses three 12AX7 tubes inside which gives it that warm, lush, sweet sound. Tube rollers rejoice!
Cosmetically, it is in fine shape. Some scuff marks and some sharpie touch ups but nothing major like dings or dents. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
