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
