In anticipation of the release of our new LDRx and LDRxB (balanced) Passive Preamps later this month, I'd like to organize a tour around our LDRxB Balanced Passive Preamp. Assuming of course that there's sufficient interest. More info on the LDRxB can be found here: http://www.tortugaaudio.com/product/ldrx-ldrxb-passive-preamps/
Here's a summary of the tour and related rules:
1) Tour Unit - the LDRxB Balanced Passive Preamp - so ideally we're looking for people who have balanced sources and balanced amps although the LDRxB will also accommodate RCA in/out. Preferences go to those with balanced equipment.
2) Tour Size - maximum of 15 participants
3) Timing - tour would start sometime in September
4) Eligible participants - AudioCircle members excluding those who participated in the 2013/2014 tour of the LDR1.
5) Duration of Possession - Each tour member will have the use of the LDRxB tour unit for a maximum of 10 days although you should try to turn it around in a week. Thus if it arrives on a Monday, plan on shipping it out the following Monday.
6) Shipping - Each tour member will ship the preamp to the next member on the list using UPS or FedEx using as much or the original packaging as practicable and will insure the unit at its full retail price. If the packaging gets truly buggered along the way, let me know and I'll ship you a "fresh" box to continue the tour with.
That's it. No quid pro quo. No prearranged discounts or special deals. You can post your opinion on the unit or decline to do so. No reason needed.
If you're interested you can post a response here or PM me. In general, it's first come first serve offer. I'll post an updated list of tour members as planning evolves.
