This is the 2-in-1-out XLR preamp from Goldpoint.

It has a 15dB pre-attenuation circuit using IRC RC55 resistors at 0.1% tolerance. This is the actual unit pictured on Goldpoint's website. The pre-attenuation circuit can be removed by de-soldering the added resistors and soldering the wires back in place, but I'd recommend trying it with the circuit in before doing so.

I purchased new screws since one was misplaced, so all of them are fresh and to spec (4-40 threads, 1/2" socket head cap, stainless steel, black oxide coated).

I also applied a fresh coat of paint because it was not looking great before. The back left side (with the unit facing you) has a small paint drip as pictured. If you are bothered by it, I can charge you an extra $10 and sand that down and repaint it smooth, or I might get annoyed myself and just fix it.

Asking $380 + shipping/PayPal

Very nice! How many steps of attenuation on this unit? Also, is this a 50k unit?

To be honest, I don't know if it's 50k. I could probably open it up and find out, but it sounded great and I didn't bother checking (Edit: It looks like the default is 10k, so it's likely that). This is 24 steps, which is why I like the pre-attenuation circuit in it (it gets you past the very low steps that have a >2dB jump per position and makes it a lot easier to use in more applications).

Thanks for the confirmation, anything from 10k to 50k is usually good although I'd have to look into how my tube gear would interplay with it. The pre-attenuation circuit is genius.
