We have 2 MK2 Harmonia left at this pricing. .
 Most recent order was for the Harmonia pre with volume control and pre/buffer switch. It was offered at the same price stated in our introductory price.
Going forward we will be make all Harmonias as buffer/preamp with the switch.

Hi Doug. Yes you are seeing things correctly. It was a mistake on the rendering. The production chassis reads
"Harmonia v2.0".

After the mk2  :thumb:
Just kidding. We were originally going to offer the Harmonia mk2 as just a buffer with a 4 input selector as shown in the original post of this thread. Then decided to add the volume control for those who can use it as a preamplifier. While realizing the most popular application has been to use it as a buffer, the front panel switch would allow you to convert to a straight buffer so consumers can run it as a DHT output stage on their source components. For just the cost of a volume control, it seemed like the logical way of offering more flexibility.
I will be assembling one for a customer and will post pictures when complete.

First comments coming in on the new Purity Harmonia v2.0 2A3/300B buffer/preamp. This customer has the 2A3 Harmonia and is driving a pair of 2A3 monobloc amplifiers. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are keeping our introductory prices on the Harmonia v2.0 in place till further notice.

Been listening while sitting on the couch and the Harmonia V2 is quite musical and know it will improve dramatically. I can already tell that the bass is definitely more impactful and tight in comparison to my 6SN7 Pre.

The noise level is much better than my quad 6SN7 and 6BY5 Pre-Amp and that's with my 2A3 Mono Blocks and will try them on my solid state stereo amp next week.
