Audio Research Ref 6 SE

Hi , was told today that Audio Research Ref 6 SE is about to get released with first shipment scheduled by the end of December/ early January, if anyone has more information about specs please share , I emailed AR support waiting for response with details but they confirmed about Ref 6 SE release . I was about to purchase one so would be interested to see what got upgraded or how much will current Ref 6 will drop in price ..,
9rw, glad stereo exchange got back to you. Don’t forget you can always contact ARC directly. In the past they have always been very helpful with me.
Good luck 9rw.  I agree wholeheartedly with you and hope ARC works it out.  The same thing happened to me years ago.  I bought a PH5 and the PH6 came out less than a month later, unbeknownst to me.

Like you I made a significant investment with my dealer which also included a turntable, arm, and cartridge in addition to the preamp.  Would have liked the option to choose!

In his case he had the ph5 in stock which tells me ARC or he had no exit strategy when it comes to innovation.  
Good news. My dealer, Dave Wasserman of Stereo Exchange, informed me today that Audio Research will work with me on upgrading my Reference 6. The price is fair, so I thank them both.
