Very good condition DNM preamp/amplifier combo with original packaging and wooden shipping crates. DNM gear was handmade in Switzerland and is beautifully built, with an outer chassis of smoked Perspex. Every single component has its own ground return via a star-shaped grounding system.

I’m listing to this combo right now (1/5/19) and all I can say is WOW! It’s stunning how musical and convincing familiar tracks sound!! Midrange is so natural. Bass extension and control is equal to my 200wpc monoblocks. Overall this DNM pre-amp and amp combo are very incredibly resolving and natural – even at low volume levels. Every subtle nuance and spatial cue that are on the recording can be heard… these are really special components!

Details on the 3B Primus Pre-Amp:

Retail was $3,450

DNM 3B Primus solid state pre-amp with external regulated power supply. Purchased direct from DNM in the UK where it is designed. One of the best pre-amps of all time. This two box unit is in good condition both cosmetically and operationally works perfectly. Slight scratches on the surface of the Perspex/plexiglass that can be easily polished out. Manual and original packaging (wooden crate) is included. The current model, the 3D was a Stereophile Class A Recommended Component. NOTE: I believe this pre-amp has a MC input, but I’ve never used it, so I don’t know for sure.

Details on the PA3s Power Amplifier:

Retail was $7,195

The PA3S is the top of the line DNM amplifier. Considered by many in the audio industry to be one of the finest solid-state power amplifiers ever made, the regulated PA3S is the first design in the world to use the revolutionary new T-Network capacitor designed by DNM’s Denis Morecroft. It is a very high performance, high resolution design with the typical strengths of all DNM amplifiers, but its power rating allows it to be used with a wide variety of quality loudspeaker systems in domestic settings. It is a beautifully made precision amplifier with a power rating of 23 watts per channel, but sounds much more powerful than that.

Includes all necessary DNM solid core interconnect cables, umbilical cable between pre and power amps.

Why am I selling it? When I sit down to listen to music with my wife, she wants to be able control the volume from song to song with a remote control. Unfortunately, we can’t do that with the DNM so I’ve decided to sell it.
