SOLD Odyssey Audio Candela vacuum tube preamplifier with optional remote included

***AVAILABLE SOON - SEE BELOW***

Asking $900 obo

Odyssey Audio Candela vacuum tube preamplifier with optional remote included.

This unit is less than two years old and functions the same as the day it was new. This Candela has been used exclusively in a dedicated listening room which is smoke free and pets have never entered this room. It comes with remote and will be sent in original Odyssey box and packaging. The manual is provided via a link to the Odyssey website (see below). There is one small scratch on the rear of the case that is virtually undetectable from more than 12 inches away (see photos). Otherwise, it is cosmetically clean with no dents (note: the case has a brushed aluminum finish).

I am the original owner and Odyssey provides a 20 year warranty which is transferable to the second owner.

I have little activity here as I typically don't have much to say. You can verify my 100% rating on eBay with the same screen name (la10slgr).

**********************
Odyssey offers a “check-up” service in which they check the bias, offset, connections and power supply. Prior to this listing, I took advantage of this service and sent it to them for inspection so it will be coming to you as “factory fresh” as possible directly from Odyssey. Odyssey received the shipment 2-21-2020 and will ship as soon as the check-up is complete

Thanks for the interest! I was thinking that would be something I would take care of but am amicable to whatever makes you most comfortable.

i still have nothing from you.. However, if we keep this up, you'll probably hit your 15 posts in a matter of no time!!!! Glad you said hifishark as that was the only place I could think of that would reference this ad... whew!! A thought, I guess you could make a few more comments on this thread to get to your 15 then check to see if you can send/respond to messages...

Hi Joe,

I responded but it seems a handful of posts got deleted, very weird... quick version:
1. I wanted Hdmi and surround sound capabilities so I got a marantz processor. I think the Candela sounds better when comparing the two as the build quality definitely shows.
2. Colorado, but like I said, the Candela will be coming to you directly from Odyssey
3. Seeing as how one of the deleted posts mentioned you wanted to make this happen, I will send you another pm to discuss purchase details
