Yep, I've decided to put my Halcro SSP-100 up for sale. When I do, I'll post it on the usual venues (AVS, Videogon, Ebay, etc.).
However, I thought I'd give the readers of this thread an opportunity to preempt my marketing efforts. I will make it available to thread readers for 5 days before I post it broadly. If you are interested, send me a PM and mention that you saw this thread. No reasonable offer will be refused!
To recap, it's a like new Halcro SSP-100 that was bought when they first came out (2007). At that time, it carried an MSRP of +/- $10k. The unit is in fantastic condition. It even still has the protective film on the display screen. It is truly "like new". It has not had any of the updates applied and, consequently, doesn't have any of the issues they caused.
The unit will ship in its original box, with the original manual, remote, etc.
I will also include a rackshelf (5U) with the custom silver faceplate for the Halcro.
You won't find a nicer example of this machine. And, you'd be hard pressed to find a better sounding pre-pro. It sounds so good, I'm tempted to use it as a 2ch preamp. It's a bit overkill for that, but it would hold its own with most anything out there. I just don't have the space for a dedicated 2ch listening area.
Make me an offer and let's see if we can get this to a new home!
