 67911504256338790 Counterpoint SA 11

Super nice, way cool, Counterpoint SA-11 preamplifier from the 1980's. One owner, like new, everything works as it should, with the tubed sound only Counterpoint had!! I have the remote, but no original boxes. Will be double boxed for shipping...will ship anywhere. From the Alta Vista website: The SA-11 was ahead of its time. An all-out tube line-only preamp -- a "control amplifier" -- with remote control. Wow! A 60-lb dual-mono line stage! It's larger than most power amps, and outweighs them, too! This baby is dual-mono: it has twin transformers, dual-mono vacuum-tube power supplies (13 tubes!); and uses 6SN7 octal-based tubes in the audio section . Stepper-motor-driven 41-position stepped attenuators. It was very, very expensive (for the mid-80's) and nothing, absolutely nothing in those days could touch it. Counterpoint only made a few hundred. And according to those who have heard the SA-11, or own one, nothing, absolutely nothing on the market today can touch it.
