Design & Quality:
This Class A design preamplifier has been thoughtfully engineered and carefully hand assembled with strict quality checks done throughout the entire process. An engineering test report is filled out for every unit during the burn-in period to ensure proper performance of every individual component in the circuit. We WOULD NOT sell anyone a piece of equipment that didn't perform to our high standards during listening tests. Our name is on these and we want them to be right for decades.
