    Audio Research Reference 6SE line preamplifier | Stereophile.com This preamp in my opinion gets you really close to the REF10 in terms of performance. This isn’t a small upgrade in terms of Sonic gains. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Sorry for dropping you this message out of the blue. Would like to see if you still have your Cary 306 Pro since I am interested in getting one but not sure about its reliability, or worthy to get a CPO unit from Cary. Hopefully you wouldn’t mind sharing some insight.
    Thanks in advance.
