**SOLD** Photos: Sonic Frontiers Preamplifier Line3SE+


#1

Thank you all for your interest in the SF Pre Line3SE+… Everybody just be patient and enjoy your New Year’s Eve!



#2

Cool!



We still need the comparison with your ARC preamp however. :slight_smile:



(A number of people PM’d me asking questions about the unit as I have had experience owning Sonic Frontiers. I can confirm there is a lot of interest - justifiably so.)


#3

@elk Not ARC - Conrad Johnson


#4

I think it will be a good fight - the ACT 2 is ten years old as well, although a good deal more expensive than the Line 3, IIRC.



Let us know.


#5

@elk Mine is the Series 2.



#6

I did not know there is a series 2. I remember the ACT 2 when it first came out in the early 2000’s.



I like the motorized step-attenuator - very cool.


#7

@elk …Yup.


#8

scheduled for Saturday 1/11.


#9

And do you have the gloves and screwdriver, too?



I bet you do. :slight_smile:


#10

You know, I don’t know.


#11

It is simply an inexpensive screwdriver for taking the cover off to install the tubes.



The neat remote:



#12

Forgot about that UFO remote. I always liked it.

Got the tube box with the pretty blue insert. You know what? I think the gloves & screwdriver may have been in there.



Got the remote - batteries have been never put inside



Question: What is the screwdriver for?

Putting on and taking off the top.

The unit comes with just a few screws in to secure the top, and a pack of screws.

I’ll just use a hammer. Quality work only at the shop!



:))

#16

As my Ducati mechanic likes to say, “If you cannot fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem.”


#17

Saw the Sonic Frontiers Pre Line 3SE+ today on a shelf at the back of the shop waiting its turn next Saturday. Should be a fun project!


#18

@elk Hey Elk! Found the gloves & screwdriver. Photos of completed job Saturday afternoon.

:slight_smile:



Of course, these are critical.



Yet, it is kind of nice to have absolutely everything together as as set.



Don’t forget pics of the innards. I am curious to see how the mods look.

The remote is cool. And somebody copied someone in that it looks a lot like the d agastino preamp remote on his new one. The guy formally of KRELL. Not exact but cool too but I think highly impractical to use.
