SW1X LPU I Phono Pre-Amplifier

SW1X Audio Design™ LPU I Performance Level 1 MM Valve Phono Pre-Amplifier

 

The phono pre-amplfier is based on a classic circuit design used to master vinyl recordings and master tapes

It is a two gain stage design consisting of 2 (one for each channel) pentode valves on the input and one double triode valve on the output.

The input stage utilises lush sounding EF80/EF86 valves in pentode mode, which drive passive RIAA equalization network (without series resistors) and the powerful 6N6P double triode on the output stage

The power supply is 6X4 valve rectified and choke filtered

Ordering

We do not recommend purchasing a key system component without first auditioning it carefully, which is why we have demonstration rooms and a flexible home loan policy.

However in certain situations it can be difficult for people to get to our showroom and for those instances we can offer our mail order service.
