here's an excellent unbiased review and discussion of a couple of our preamps . . . .


NEW option for ALL preamps - 128 step volume control with remote control including 4 channel inputs

add $120 to preamp price
 


SP9 preamp

this is a 4 tube line amplifier plus tube power supply and high quality TONE CONTROLS !!
If you need a phono preamp you can add our PH-12 phono circuit
Note - these photos also show the optional PH12 phono section added inside.

Note - this is also available in a new OCTAL tube version ($100 additional), email for more info, see photos of OCTAL version here

SP12 preamp

this is our most popular preamp, and probably the best value for your $$$.
Standard version in 12" or 16" chassis, If you need a phono preamp you can add our PH-12 phono circuit into the larger 16" chassis.

The SE upgrade is a popular option with the 16" chassis, includes 21 step master volume attenuator and dual mono gain/balance step attenuators,
instead of conventional volume and balance controls; We supply better quality ECC802 or mil-spec 6189W tubes



one of our customers posted this review on AudioAsylum here http://www.audioasylum.com/forums/amp/messages/16/166938.html

and here are some additional photos of a custom SP12 build I did for a customer, with some followup comments.

SP13 preamp

this is our newest preamp design, a smaller version of our very best SP14 using smaller 6CG7/6FQ7 tubes.
Same essential circuit design as our SP12 but with many improvements. this has dual mono regulated power supplies for each channel, for both B+ and filaments.
STANDARD items include 21 step volume attenuator and dual mono gain/balance attenuators, iso-damping chassis, iso-mounts for the circuit board, and more.
NOTE: For phono use with this preamp, you'll need to add a separate phono preamp such as our premium PH14 or PH16 phono preamp below.

SP13 preamp in 16" chassis with triple attenuators
(21 step volume and dual gain/balance) $1300 plus $40 shipping in USA.
 


SP14 preamp

this is our very best preamp, using larger 6SN7 octal tubes, in a larger 5" tall chassis.
Same circuit circuit design as our SP13 but on a much larger PCB, with NO room to add a phono section inside.
NOTE: For phono use with this preamp, you'll need to add a separate phono preamp such as our premium PH14 or PH16 phono preamp below.
This preamp has dual mono regulated power supplies for each channel, for both B+ and filaments.
STANDARD items include 21 step volume attenuator and dual mono gain/balance attenuators, iso-damping chassis, iso-mounts for the circuit board, and more.

all new PH-12 premium phono preamp

premium grade phono only preamp using a JFET (10x less noise than a tube) as a current source in cascode with 6922 tube gain stage
for super low-noise cascode front end followed by passive RIAA EQ, and buffered output; followed by another 6922 output buffer;
gain is adjustable from 45db to 50db with a jumper.
PH12 phono circuit added to any 16" chassis preamp above (except SP13 & SP14) for $240
 

PH-14 premium phono preamp

This has a full power supply using tube rectification, with HV regulator and filament regulator.

PH-16 premium phono preamp

This is our very best phono preamp, this is a phono only separate preamp, and INCLUDES premium grade resistors and capacitor.
premium grade phono only preamp using a JFET (10x less noise than a tube) as a current source in cascode with 6922 tube gain stage
for super low-noise cascode front end followed by passive RIAA EQ, followed by another 6922 gain stage, followed by an AIKIDO output buffer with two 6922 tubes.;
gain is 45db use with MM cartridges or medium to high output MC cartridges.
