Concurrently with release of the Vista-Audio phono preamplifier (http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=69710.0), it is my pleasure to announce the AudioCircle Limited Edition version (ACLE).
The Limited Edition version will have the following added features compared to the standard product:
- Preselected, low-offset version of the operational amplifier will be used in two gain stages.
- In addition to high precision resistors and capacitors used in passive RIAA circuit, the ACLE will have 0.5% resistors used everywhere else (normally, 1% accurate resistors are used).
- 10% of the sales ($30 per unit) will go directly to support AudioCircle.
- Free shipping worldwide (see the power supply note below).
- 30% discount on Low Capacitance Silver Interconnects from AudioLimits, perfect for MM and MC cartridges (regular price $99, if ordered with ACLE phono, then only $69) http://www.audiolimits.ca/interconnect/index.htm).
- There will be only 100 ACLE preamplifiers made, each one with its own unique serial number (ACLE001 through ACLE100).
- Ordering and tracking details are here http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=69793.0:h
MORE DETAILS ON THIS OFFER:
- This offer has been discussed and graciously approved by JohnR and Steering Committee.
- Prepaid orders will be logged as received, and serial number assigned (you can pick an unassigned s/n should you want). PayPal, check or MO are all accepted.
- ACLE preamplifiers will start shipping in September '09 on the first-order-first-ship basis. We'll try to speed up the process, but it may take us 8-10 weeks to build units and close all orders.
- Standard 2yr warranty and return policy applies, with exception of actual shipping costs and $30 donation to AudioCircle which are not refundable.
- Within the US/Canada, the preamplifier ships with it's own wall plug AC supply (wall-wart). Unfortunately, we were not able to locate acceptable source for 230V version. International orders will ship without the power supply. Buyer will need to provide local power supply capable of generating 12VAC, with minimum output current of 0.2Amp and standard 5.5/2.1mm coaxial connector. Free international shipping should offset the cost of the power supply.
