For your consideration, we have a sweet sounding Bryston 0.4B Linestage Preamp. We serviced the unit, and it is in now in perfect working order. When we took in the preamp, there was an issue with a noisy relay. We replaced the relay, as well as the faulty caps in the power supply that caused the issue with the relay. All switches and pots were cleaned, and then treated with the appropriate Deoxit. All RCA terminals were cleaned, and then treated with Deoxit Gold G100L solution. This is an extremely clean sounding preamp, and we enjoyed it immensely in our house system. The build quality, as we find in all Bryston gear is top notch.
Physically the preamp is in very good condition and presents itself extremely well. The faceplate, sides and back are in very good condition, and the top has some light scuffs and blemishes. This unit has the rackmount faceplate, and it appears to never have been mounted in a rack, as the holes on the "ears" of the faceplate are clean.
We don't have the original box for this unit, but we take packaging and shipping seriously. We spare no expense and use heavy duty boxes, several inches of polyethylene foam on all sides of the unit. Finally, water activated, fiber reinforced tape is used on all seams.
