Audio Research LS1 Tube Line Stage in Mint Condition
Audio Research LS1 line stage in perfect condition. Cosmetics are perfect. Functionality is perfect.
Includes extra tubes for those of you that would like to do some tube rolling. Includes one Amperex 6DJ8 Bugle Boy D Getter manufactured in Holland with about 20 hours, one new never used NOS one Amperex 6DJ8 Bugle Boy D Getter manufactured in Holland, one Sovtek 6922 Russian tube with about 300 hours, one ARS 6922 Sovek Russian CRYO-treated tube with about 900 hours on it, one Audio Research West German tube with about 1600 hours on it, two brand new never used NOS JAN Phillips USA 6922, one brand new never used NOS Phillips Holland Miniwatt SQ 6DJ8 / E88CC. These tubes are rated for between 5000 & 10,000 hours. Also includes a pair of new tube dampers.
The NOS tubes were purchased from Tube Depot. They were purchased with balanced triodes and matched. I did not get high gain because they lean toward noise and microphonics. The standard gain sounds much better. Go out to their web site and price the tubes yourself and see what they cost. The Miniwatt SQ's are over $100.00 each, I wish I could use them in the LS27.
It is clean inside and out. I cover all my equipment when it is not in use so it is not covered in dust not even in the crevices. All the silk screening is clean and perfect front and back. All the gold connectors are clean and shiny not tarnished or dirty. It has never been racked.
I'm selling because I just bought a new LS27 and don't need it anymore.
It comes from a pet and smoke free home.
