This is the next best thing after the two chassis Evolution P-8 preamp which cost almost twice as much. The P-7 is not far off in terms of performance when compared to the P-8 which kind of makes it a real reference bargain. Detail retrieval and resolution was excellent through the P-7. The presentation was clean and transparent with no sense of strain. It was just smooth and well flowed through. Very musical piece and highly recommended.
The preamp was recently sent back to Simaudio for a full “checkup” and bias back to original factory spec. So the unit is working like new now. Cosmetically, the preamp is in very nice shape. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. We have the original remote, manual and box for it.
