  • FS: Zesto Andros 1.2 Phonostage Preamplifier

    For sale is a Like New, Mint Condition Zesto Andros 1.2 Phonostage, stereophile Class A phono preamplifier. I am the original owner and purchased brand new from an authorized Zesto dealer in the United States. It has only been used for a few months with very limited use, but have owned it a little over a year which is why I graded it as Excellent (though it is mint). It includes all original gloves, tubes, manual, boxing materials, etc. It looks brand new. I need to sell it to raise funds for medical expenses. I will do Free Shipping in the continental US. Shipping to Canada or Alaska/Hawaii, please contact me. If not using Friends/Family Paypal, please add 3% paypal fee. I might be able to deliver the Zesto if you live near the Baltimore/DC or Pittsburgh area, as I travel to these areas often.

    Retail: $4700 Price: $3250 with Free Shipping

          Thanks Mark. Had to sell most of my system, so won't be listening for a while.
