    Black, in excellent condition complete with original double box, all packaging materials and wall wart power supply for volume motor circuit.

    Unfortunately the remote suffered a bit of damage when it fell into the mechanism of my recliner chair but the damage is superficial as it's milled from a solid block of aluminum so is really solid and works perfectly.

    I've measured the potentiometer from the output phono sockets and it is amazingly close to spec. and channel balance spot on. Think these must be specially selected for Icon Audio. Silver wired internally as per Icon original spec.

    These preamps are really well made and surprisingly heavy, it's a nice bit of kit and are up to 450 new now so I think this is a fair price:

    200 collected or 215 delivered (no offers please at this price).

    Thanks for looking.

    Yes it's a 50K Alps Blue. Personally I like carbon film pots. I find they're all about the music rather than the hifi.
