[FS] EAR YOSHINO 324 PHONO STAGE

    I have for sale an immaculate Ear Yoshino 324 Phono preamplifier, which I bought last year from PFM member Cookstown. I have loved the Yoshino 324 in my system (Basis 2200, Vector 4 and VdH Colibri XGW) however, my irrational quest for change has been awakened by the opportunity to buy a rare valve phono, which I have long desired.

    Details of the original advert can be found in this link: https://pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/ear-yoshino-324-phono-stage.244908/

    I am looking for £2300 - this is a current model in the Ear line-up and retails for £4300, they rarely appear on the 2nd hand market. I am based 25 miles west of Glasgow and can demo, or will be happy to ship as I have the original packaging.

    PM if you are interested or need any additional information

    There are plenty reviews, here are two to get you started

    Hi, thanks for your interest, I believe the unit is around 12 years old, but in immaculate condition and working perfectly

    Thank you. 12 years ago it cost 2000 pounds new. Are you open to offers on the price? Thanks K

    No idea what they cost 12 years ago, I bought it last year and paid what I'm asking now, the value is what people are prepared to pay 2nd hand for such a rare beast. I will consider offers, preferably by PM, if you have that facility as a new member

    And a pint cost £2.75. That’s inflation my friend.

    I have arranged for my Yoshino 324 to be serviced by EAR, to assure any prospective buyers that it is in top condition. This should only take a few weeks and I may even be able to arrange for EAR to ship direct to a buyer, if the timing is right

    Received back from Ear Yoshino, let me know by PM, if interested and I can send photographs and a copy of the service report. I may have managed to attach a link to a photo taken today
