    Will add some pics later but it's a standard one with two volume pots and original valves.

    Top physical and working condition. No transformer hum.

    Only moving on as I no longer have a turntable so it's a bit wasted.

    £775 posted in UK.

    Cheers.

    Best pre amp I've ever known. I can't imagine anything ever sounding better. Playing mine now with a Quad 303.

    Truly well priced too !

    Why do things never look dusty until you photograph them...

    The valves are never likely to fail. (Famous last words....)

    That is totally incorrect.
    Preamp' valves, when used as in a Croft and broadly similar designs, essentially never fail - ask around.

    They can, and do last a long time, but will eventually fail. Never say never.

    One of the best pre amps you can own for not much north of half price and folk are chattering about valves !

    Hello. Not sure about the age or number of owners. Bought from a member here and never crossed my mind to ask tbh. I can check.

    Nothing about it shows any sign of wear or mileage.

    Hi , Any update on this ?

    It is the current front layout and that is something like 6? 8? years old, certainly moderately recent.

    I owned a Croft 25 micro basic about 10 years ago , That had the dual volume controls fitted , I thought the more recent units were fitted with a single control,

    OP do you have the serial number ? If you do can you PM me please and I can ask Glen via email ( Before the cricket season starts ) :D

    Hi Rob, you have a PM.

    The current version - Croft Acoustics Micro 25R Line Pre Amplifier at Audio Affair

    Dual concentric volume is an option and someone out there, not Glenn, is offering a remote control conversion.

    Probably every Micro and Vitale ever built that has not been abused, will still be working, certainly there are 30-40-year-old units still running fine - they come up on EPay not infrequently, people here run them. There is nothing to go wrong in them and even if something did happen, they are so simple to repair........
