Extra Info: http://tisburyaudio.co.uk/mini-passive-preamplifier

Bought this for a second system, but that plan has been bumped out, so not going ahead with the study room system. I tested this on my main system with a pair of 3 meter interconnects to the SGR actives, with no noticable loss in volume. You could also use this as a switch, Output 2 can be configured (by switches on the base) as either an additional primary output, or as a 'loop' out, to bypass the volume control and loop out to another device.  
Output 1 is the primary output and its level is set by the volume control. A new feature is the selectable attenuation, which allows you to reduce the signal by a fixed -10 dB or -20 dB. If your system has too much gain and you can't turn the volume dial past 12 o'clock without hearing damage,
this setting will help. I compared this passive to another 5 input version (made in China), and this one sounded better to me.


Pictures: To be loaded over the weekend.

Very flexible, high quality little unit is this.  I use mine together with a Beresford Amp and Speaker switching box.  I can have Turntable, CD and streamer in and because it has 2 outputs I can use the Beresford to switch between SS and Valve amps and between speakers (A or B or A+B).  I know it isn't a theoretically purist approach but I cannot tell that this thing adds any noise or issues whatsoever and it adds that convenience factor at really low cost.  I also tested it as a straight passive amp on each of the power amps and again it performed very well.  Someone should just buy it and figure out later how to use it.....
