Bewitch SN3008T Preamp

Recommended Posts

Was perusing the China Hifi site and noticed this preamp. It's not cheap at nearly $3600usd but to the untrained eye looks interesting. Transformer coupled output and claimed output impedance is a low 10ohms. A lot of glass in there but other than the WY-1 voltage stabiliser, it's all commonly available valve types. Runs a Danish DACT volume control, xlr in/out, nos RCA rectifier, Rubycon Black Gate(?) caps. Not sure what I'm looking at in the trannie dept.

I'll post a couple of lid off pics and any thoughts regarding pros and cons welcome.

There's a little bit about Bewitch on the web. Most prominent was Mr Fikus@Lampizator giving the Bewitch KT88 the thumbs up, a rare occurrence for the budget valve amp category. That was heartening enough for me to post here.

There's another model listed, SN3008, that's $1kusd cheaper.

That looks very tidy indeed, but I'm puzzled at the complete lack of shielded or twisted signal wires?
