Bryston SP2 Pre/pro (upgraded SP 1.7 to SP 2 to be exact). I bought it from the original owner a few months ago with original box and all records of sale and upgrade. It is in perfect working and cosmetic condition. Something like $7,000 was spent between the original purchase and all the upgrades. I am selling for $1000, which is an absolute steal.
If you're not familiar do yourself a favor and check out the specs and reviews. It's two preamps in one chassis. You essentially get true audiophile Bryston BP26 stereo preamp quality with the added benefit of multichannel analog in/outs and home theater digital processing.
I used my OPPO 105 as my music source (Tidal) and to do my A/V switching (DirecTV, Apple TV), then sent the audio out to the SP2 (through both analog and digital outs, for various applications) and controlled all of it singularly with a Harmony remote. 100% brilliant set up.
Only reason I am selling, believe it or not, is my wife cannot live without onscreen volume display on the TV. No you don't get the Bryston's OSD with this setup, since there isn't any video side to this pristinely audiophile preamp, so she was annoyed that she never "knew" what the volume was. Whatever that means. So its time to move on to my next adventure in HT...
Prefer pickup in Los Angeles but open to whatever. Ill pay for PayPal, you pay to ship.
Actual pics to come. Heres a link to the pics from the ad I purchased from...
