The Musical Fidelity A3.2CR was a preamp that had no equals (in our opinion) when it was selling at its $1,700 MSRP. It had a beautiful bloom in the mid-range, had a very natural and spirited sound that was better than the similarly priced Cyrus preamps which sounded dull compared to the Musical Fidelity. There was a certain quickness to the sound and its clarity to details was very good and didn’t sound overly bright. The phono section, switchable between MM and MC cartridges was a bonus at this price point and actually sounded pretty good with the right cartridges. Extra low output MC cartridges may struggle to put up a decent sound level but MM and higher output MC cartridges were analog delights.
Cosmetically, the unit looks really good. Minor scuff marks here and there common with use but nothing major. We don’t have the original remote but will be including a Logitech Harmony 650 universal remote (pre-programmed) which you can use with the Musical Fidelity and your other audio components. Manual is available online. We will securely pack this for safe shipping.
