    Default FS: Pure Sound L10 valve preamp with remote control

    Excellent condition and working order.
    A very highly rated pre. I just don't need a pre-amp any more! I go direct from DAC/pre to power amp or use my Wadia "all in 1".
    RRP around 2,600.

    I am the 2nd owner - it was originally bought in October 2016, so about 1 year old.

    Remote control of volume.
    If left unused for a while the remote function can require a little help to start with - just manually twiddle the volume knob to remind it!

    Original box and packing material so this is safe to courier.

    1100 inc UK delivery

    Internal shot.

    Count those transformers!
    -- and yes, this is very heavy for a preamp.

    Looks great. Is that an alps blue pot with a motor attached? What's the switch on the back for?

    That is a motorised ALPS Blue. The wires off the motor appear to be going to the yellow board, which is for the remote control. You can see the thin cable off that board to the sensor mounted in the front panel to the left of the volume control.

    Sounds like the sticky volume control could be fixed with a bit of grease before the motor takes the strain.

    The switch at the back is for grounding to address any ground loop problems in the system "Earth" or "Isolate", the manual says.
