New Audio Research REF6 Preamplifier in!

We have the brand new Audio Research REF6 Stereo Preamplifier in, and it’s already garnering high praise from our staff. While like any Audio Research product they recommend significant break in time, it’s still sounding really amazing right out of the box. The design of the faceplate is following the recent G Series styling, and it’s sound is creating something from another world. Our last ARC REF5 SE was so amazing, it’s hard to believe that they could top that, but they have. The tube count has been increased to six in the analog section (from 4), and there have been advancements made in the power supply to improve macro and micro dynamics and lowered distortion. The volume pot has also been upgraded. While the REF5SE was a top notch Pre, this is a definite upgrade over it. Hard to believe, but true. An early review can be found here.
