This is one of the most flexible phono preamp in the market. It allows for three turntables to be hooked up to it and has four preouts to be connected to four preamps or integrated amplifiers. Add remote control functions where you can remotely adjust the gain (75, 68, 62, 56, 50, 44, 38 dB) and load values (47k, 10k, 5k, 2.5k, 1k, 500, 250, 125, 75 ohm) at the convenience of your listening chair, what more do you need? It also have a cartridge demagnetizer (for MC cartridges only!) and five tubes – two 12AX7LP, two 12AX7WB and one 6922 to supply the lush, smooth sound. At its original $4,000 MSRP, it was a ridiculous bargain but at under $2,200 now, this is the perfect steal for the vinyl enthusiast!
Cosmetically, the Rhea looks good. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We have the original box and copy of the manual. It be securely packed for safe shipping.
