Locally in Mumbai is preferred. Outstation can be discussed.

Nothing Chinese.

Phono preferred as it will be used with my Vinyl.

Pre/power combo or integrated either is ok.

Must be able to power speakers of about 90db.

Budget Will be depending on product, pre/power, condition etc.

Thank you.

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.

How about buying a Pre for now use with your Marantz amp & Power later?
Lyrita Dht Preamplifier ( at 37k with can be configured with Phono stage if you want) is pretty good, unfortunately it doesn't come with Remote. There's tube integrated available with Lyrita as well, which can be considered.

Otherwise, Buy Saga at 32k or Freya at 55k and give line in from your existing phono preamp is another option.

all good valve amplifiers cost a decent amount. can't escape this fact. outboard phono stage will be always superior to ones built in unless made on board by some well known companies but those will be very expensive as it is.

moral of the story, very difficult to find good valve amps at your price point

IMO tube based phono preamp are very drifty due to high gain stage from low level, they seem to change character due to this. Hence solid-state phono preamp are more popular than the tube counterpart.
