BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Build a DCB1 buffer or Kuartlotron buffer. Nothing in 10K (or even multiples) will touch either.

I would say even close to 4 times maybe.
And in the same way can't have any huge expectations for the said budget getting a decent branded pre-amp
More impossible then possible

1998 model :eek:
Well, with all due respect, the budget you have quoted means either a relic or Diy. There are a number of preamps for sale on this forum but they seem "slightly" more than your budget.
Preamplifier covers a pretty diverse range, but if all you need is a buffered source selector with some gain, the marantz should work just fine.

Actually I'm surprised that its 20 years old and still working.
And I'll bit skeptical to buy coz what if it stops working someday.. then getting things serviced is a pain.

Buy Schiit SYS at 6k, now available for sale on Hpz!
I bought a new one recently, and I don't think you'll ever regret buying it . You can demo that when you visit my place.
