The Signature Series 2.0 AV preamp was somewhat of a poke at high end sound from a “multi-purpose” preamp. It is a very good sounding preamp, clean, transparent and smooth. $2,500 was quite a fair bit of money in its day but it combined the essence of a home theater and stereo system into one convenient box where you can enjoy a top rated home theater sound and a standard two channel stereo without compromising either. The preamp is extremely flexible and is just missing HDMI (pre-HDMI days…). As a stereo preamp for under $300, this will trump similarly priced rivals from NAD, Cambridge Audio and other mid-priced components. Plus, it is Made in the USA!
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. Original remote and manual is included. Unit will be securely pack for safe shipping.
