SOLD 

I inherited this pre amp from my Dad he had it for a while.

I believe it's about 10 years old. 

I started it up and it works really well. Great sound for the modest cost. 

It's got a few marks here and there, please refer to photographs. 

Sale is only for the pre amp, no cables. 

I don't have the boxes for this pre amp so prefer local pick up,

but will consider posting at agreed price. Postage/Courier (boxes) and insurance will need to be paid for by purchaser.

 

I set out below some details in relation to the pre amp:

 

  • Frequency response: 20 Hz - 50 kHz +/- 0.5 dB,
  • Output voltage: 2 V
  • Total harmonic distortion: < 0.1 % (1 kHz, 1 Watt),
  • Input sensitivity: 240 mV,
  • Signal-Noise ratio: > 90 dB
  • Input impedance: 47 kOhm
  • Inputs: 4 x Stereo RCA, 2 x Stereo XLR
  • Outputs: 2 x Stereo RCA, 1 x Stereo RCA Rec Out, 1 x Stereo XLR,
  • 2 x 3,5 mm Jack sockets (Power Control)
  • Tubes: 1 x 12 AX7B, 2 x 12AU7, double transformer
  • Colour: black/silver,
  • Weight: 10 kg
  • Dimensions (WxHxD): 430 x 135 x 370 mm

 

A valve prestage to meet the highest standards. Inside, the 4x12AX7 and 3x12AU7 valves provide the perfect pre-amplification for weak signals.The circuitry with its negative feedback design is the optimum of linearity and sound.Gold-plated high-grade Neutrik XLR input and output connectors take the relevant cables, giving the best possible quality, and they guarantee a clean sound.

Thanks Initforthemusic,

 

I was really surprised what you could get out of this modestly priced pre amp. It was really good. I could only imagine what it would be like with the Psvanes. 

 

Cheers

It's a terrific unit for tube rolling. I had best results rolling a NOS mullard 12ax7 or GE 5751 into the V1 position. Didn't really find a noticeable change in the other spots.

It punched out SQ way above its price point.
