The World's Largest Online Seller of Hi-End Audio ...


NEW with full factory warranty
Buy From A Safe Seller - We've Been On EBAY Since 1998 !!!


HigherFi is the largest seller of ultra high end audio in the world, and we are excited to be able to offer this ultimate audiophile enhancement product from Walker Audio.

We offer for sale here  a NEW Walker Audio Reference Phono Amplifier Second Edition. This unit is an all-out effort to build the best sounding phono amplifier at any price. We have extensively compared it to phono amps and pre-amps – both solid state and tubes – costing up to $50,000. Nothing has come close. This phono amp does not sound like solid state or tubes. It sounds like music. It allows you to easily distinguish very fine adjustments in VTA and tracking force and to hear your music like you never dreamed was possible.


The main chassis is 9 x 6 x 4 ¾ inch premium jatoba with three Valid Points cones and four ½-inch Valid Points resonance control discs.  Mostly component-to-component connected and point-to-point wired with ultra-pure, deep-cryo-ed, Teflon-insulated, solid core, directionally configured silver wire.

1. The phono stage is directly coupled. There are no selector switches, jumpers, capacitors, transformers, or servos in the signal path – only one proprietary precision nude foil resistor and one aerospace ceramic amplifier. There are no digital circuits, LEDs, lights or on/off switches. Nothing to degrade the sound.

2. All resistors are proprietary nude foil on ceramic backing. There are no carbon or metalized epoxy resistors used anywhere.

3. The RIAA (phono) equalization utilizes superior grade Teflon capacitors, which do not cross the signal path. The chips used to regulate the circuitry and the power supply were designed for military aerospace applications.

4. True point-to-point with ultra-pure solid core silver wire – Teflon insulated. Direct coupled, only one resistor for cartridge loading in signal path. Input and output signal path is less than two inches.

5. RCAs are custom screw terminated. No solder.

6. The output section is directly coupled (no capacitors or transformers). The DC offset is nulled using the supplied volt meter. Adjustable controls are easily accessible externally. Other means to eliminate the DC offset compromises the sonic performance.

7. Adjustable gain of 40 – 66 db. MC phono S/N > 90 db, THD < 0.0015%.

8. Chassis is constructed from one-inch thick premium Jatoba, finished in a hand-rubbed tung oil and bolted to a six piece Valid Points resonance control system. You receive an additional Valid Points discs to sit on top of the chassis.

9. The entire Reference Phono Amplifier is given a deep cryogenic treatment – a process that takes four days.



A true dual mono power supply with dual solid core Torroidal transformers, the very best (and expensive) Blackgate capacitors. Fully regulated. No circuit boards. Component-to-component connected and point-to-point wired with ultra-pure, deep-cryo-ed, Teflon-insulated, solid core,directionally configured silver wire.

All resistors are special proprietary nude .005% foil. No carbon or metalized resistors used anywhere. The umbilical cable is Teflon with ultra-pure silver and the best Limo connectors – all of which is cryogenically treated.

The power supply  is 18.5 x 7 x 6 inches and constructed of premium jatoba finshed with hand-rubbed tung oil. Three 2-inch Valid Points cones are bolted to the chassis and five ½-inch Valid Points resonance control discs are supplied. The Power Supply is fitted with two IECs so premium power cords of your choice may be used.

Here is what some of our past customers had to say about us:

Having been an audiophile and a reviewer for over ten years, I have dealt with many people in the industry. My experience with Chris Moon of was one of the smoothest, hassle free experiences I have had. I'm sure we will work together again soon. Thanks,
Greg Petan, Managing Editor/
"HigherFi is an honest, forthright seller of used high-end audio equipment. I have known Chris for over ten years and he has always been above board, knowledgeable, and a very good communicator. I would surely recommend him to anyone looking to sell very high-end audio components on a world-wide stage. I'm not sure there is anyone in the business today that's sold more gear in the uber-end of the market. What else can I say? Highly recommended!"
Jeff Fritz , Reviewer with UltraAudio
"I first encountered Chris Moon at while I was Director of Marketing at Audiogon. Chris brought an unmatched reputation for integrity and an amazing variety of astounding products to Audiogon. I've been involved in audio for 40 years, working in retail, wholesale, manufacturing, in the media, as a show-organizer and as a business-development consultant, and there is no one in the audio industry whom I respect and trust more than Chris."
Bill Leebens - Director of Marketing/Audiogon,
Organizer, 2012 New York Audio Show
"I had the pleasure of setting up a Genesis 1.1 Loudspeaker system with my buddy that was purchased through HigherFi. The buyer was very happy and we had a blast dialing that system in! Chris seems to have all the great toys and the knowledge to get them pumping out fantastic music."
Michael Mercer, HPSoundings and Positive Feedback
Chris, many thanks for facilitating my purchase of the Wilson X-1 Series 3's. The speakers were just like new, as you said they would be, and your post-purchase advice about setting them up in my room has been extremely valuable. You made a deal happen that neither the seller nor I would have been able to make happen by ourselves ... but you made it happen. Thanks.
