I think I got all things squared away. I spoke with Art, and I am going to get the line stage instead of the 3B. (It has the remote volume)
In fact Art told me the 3B was ready to ship to me in Monday ! That’s 6 weeks! That’s pretty darn good turn around time !
Anyway he said the Line stage would be ready by about end of March for me. I’m really happy now, as I know I wouldn’t be happy without a remote volume control. Thanks everyone for your help !
@georgehifi...usually Art has you hang on to your unit until the new one is ready to ship. I’m pretty sure the OP still has his original M3A. Art also gives a very excellent trade-in price, so I’m sure the OP will trade it in.

Also, just to avoid confusion, both units are 3B’s. You have the M3A or B which is a full function preamp with phono, but NO remote. The L3A or B is a Line Stage Only WITH remote.
One is a 3B (Modulus) Which is full function pre amp, (has built in phono) the other is just line stage pre amp. “L3A”. (With volume remote)
The one I’ll be handing in for the trade in value is a Modulus 3A. (it has the phono stage too).
And I’m glad I made the change. I’m sure the phono is nice on the new 3B, but having no remote would be a real bummer for me, as I listen to a lot of digital audio too, and there is a lot of volume variations on song to song also. I’d be getting up after every different song....
