What I have up for offer is a Phase Linear stereo set-up that was made for black vinyl. The following pieces of equipment are included:
Phase Linear 400b Power amp
Phase Linear 4000 pre-amp
Phase Linear 8000 turntable
Here is the story. My Mother recently died and me and my wife decided to clean out our house real good and get rid of everything that we are not using. This whole stereo is in very good condition, but it has not been used for a couple of years. The whole set-up is made specifically for vinyl, the pre-amp has a lot of features that are designed to augment vinyl listening and is probably useless for any digital source. The power amp is huge and heavy and puts out 200 watts per channel. The real gem of this system is the turntble. The turntable is huge and heavy, it is about 16" X 16" and weighs over 45 pounds. This turntable is a lateral tracking turntable and it is simply stunning. I want to give this whole stereo to a vinyl addict because I want the pieces to stay together simply because I am the original owner and these pieces have always been together. I want this stereo to go to a vinyl addict because the stereo as a whole was designed for vinyl playback.
The catch is that this stereo has to be picked up at my house, I will not ship it. The turntable is a huge and heavy antique (I bought it new in 1980 for $850) that has never been abused. There is no guarentee as far as this set-up's condition, but it is all in cosmetically good shape. Like I said, I haven't really played it for a couple of years.
One further catch. This stereo is almost free. I will trade the whole stereo for one very CD, a good gold CD or a nice SACD. Even a used CD will do if it is a very desirable title.
Please post here if you are interested in this stereo. I am in New Mexico, about 30 miles south of Albuquerque, and the stereo is currently packed away in a box. I have all of the original owner's manuals as well.
