    RARE FIND!
    FACTORY REFURBISHED Audible Illusions Modulus 3A Full Tube Preamp. Outstanding performance, incredible value!



    The Audible Illusions Modulus 3A has been called the best value in all of audio and it's hard to argue with that claim! This preamp has been the recipient of so many awards and rave reviews that it's hard to keep count. On everyone's short list, the Modulus 3A is an incredible performer at any price and an amazing value at the asking price here.


    * What is a Factory Reconditioned Modulus? Audible Illusions allows current owners to trade in their current preamp for the latest model. Of the units sent for trade, the very best are selected for the refurbishment program. These units are carefully inspected, checked, measured and adjusted. Any suspect parts are replaced and matched to original factory specifications. The units are cleaned and preened to look virtually new.


    After they have met the high standards of Audible Illusions, a fresh set of tubes is installed and they are packaged in a new box with new manual and accessories. Note: This unit has been fitted with NOS 6H23N-EB tubes – these are the best tubes you can use in a Modulus preamp. They sell for $245 for the set!


    * What makes a Factory Reconditioned unit such a great value? Unlike other used units on the market, you have the benefit of knowing that your unit has been fully evaluated and certified by Audible Illusions. The designer himself, Art Ferris, personally checks EVERY factory reconditioned unit. You'll be comfortable knowing that your preamp is operating at peak performance and is backed by a factory warranty. With a Factory Refurbished unit, you know what you are buying!


    * VERY limited availability. We only get a handful of these units each year and they go quickly. People recognize the value in having a factory certified preamp with warranty.


    FEATURES:

    • Circuit Design is Dual Mono, Class-A, Single-Ended Triode, open-loop.
    • External Power Supply, housing three separate supplies, prevents unwanted AC-induced distortions.
    • Main Chassis has five-separate, fully-regulated FET power supplies in addition to separate filament supplies.
    • Audio Circuit has no Cathode Followers or Buffers.
    • Standby Soft-Start Circuit prolongs tube life and circuit components.
    • Automatic-timed muting with tri-color LED.
    • Control Knobs have low-light, backlit Illumination.
    • Separate Volume Controls are Precision Stepped Attenuators.
    • Proprietary gold-plated RCA jacks with Teflon insulators.
    • All circuit boards are hand-soldered with silver-bearing solder.
    • All polypropylene and polystyrene capacitors are proprietary designs of Audible Illusions.

    • Power Supply, 6"W x 10"D x 5"H
    • Muting: 45 second warm-up and automatic brown-out protection
    • Power Requirements: 115-125VAC, 60Hz
    • 45 watt maximum. 6 foot IEC Line Cord, supplied
    • Optional 100, 220, 230, 240 50-60Hz transformers.


    PHONO SECTION:

    • Gain: 28dB at 1kHz
    • Frequency Response: +/- .25dB of RIAA from 20hz to 20kHz
    • Signal Phase: Non-Inverting

    • Distortion: Less than .015% at 20 kHz
    • Input Impedance: 47 k Ohms
    • Phono Overload: 1.2v rms at 1 kHz (100k load)
    • 750mv rms at 1 kHz (IHF load)


    HIGH LEVEL SECTION:

    • Gain: 30dB, Tape & S/S Processor 0dB
    • Frequency Response: Within +/-1 dB
    • 2Hz to 100 kHz measured w 1-1 probe

    • Signal to Noise: 90dB below 1.5V rms output wideband
    • Input Impedance: 50kOhm - all
    • Output Impedance: Main-1.2 k Ohms, Tape-150 Ohms
    • Distortion: .10% at 1.5V rms, 20-50 kHz, into 50k Ohm load. Less than .12% THD at 1v out into IHF load
    • Signal Phase: Main Outputs - Inverting
    • Tape Outputs - Non-Inverting
    • Maximum Input: 9v rms.


    NOTES:

    • Use Aux or Tape inputs for highest quality reproduction.
    • Use CD input for modest quality CD players (the L- Pad network may help to soften their sound)
