Cary Audio PH-302 Mk II - Upgraded & Flawless Condition [Expired]


no longer for sale

Up for sale is a wonderful PH302 Mk II phono stage (indistinguishable from new) that’s been UPGRADED with Mundorf caps by Dan & Billy at the Cary facilities. The unit arrived new to me in early Jan 2017 and the upgrade was in August 2018. I have also upgraded the stock tubes with the following:

Amperex Bugle Boy Great Graphics 5AR4 GZ34 Vacuum tube ($90) – purchased Feb 2018 

NOS Tungsol 6SL7 ($130) – 2 each – buffer tubes – purchased Jan 2019

The price of the upgrade is $680 completed in Aug 2018.

We see this alot on Audiogon and USAM, but in this case I can truly say the unit has seen limited use as I have 3 different sources and was minus a turntable for almost a year. The retail price shown above is the price of the unit NEW plus the upgrade. I don’t expect to get back the entire cost of the upgrade of course, but it is worth noting this is not your typical Cary PH302 Mk II phono pre-amp. I will also provide you with the stock tubes. All tubes in this purchase should be good for quite some time but can’t estimate. Unit comes with Owner’s Manual, power cord and original triple boxing & packing material. Thanks for looking.
