Audion Premier Line level with moving magnet
phono stage pre-amplifier is built on a quality substrate pcb (printed
circuit board), and, as with all Audion amps, they are hand built. The chassis is
black powder coated aluminum as is the transformer cover. The top
plate and badge are mirror finished stainless steel.
The Audion Premier line / phono pre-amplifier 1.0 is an active
class A device. Built with 4 line level buffered inputs and an MM
phono stage, switched from the front panel, 2 line outputs and a direct
un-switched tape output. This pre-amp has the benefit of our MM phono
stage as above included.
The soundstage is extremely fluid and controlled. Roll off in both
directions is seamless. Resolution is astounding, with absolutely
convincing depth even at very low playing levels. It brings recording to
life and places you directly in front of the performance. The phono
stage is exactly the same as our stand alone version and is of a step ip
transformer less design, meaning it is incredibly fast and fluid.
This 1.0 Line level buffered pre-amplifier with built in MM
moving magnet phono stage is a great match with our power amplifiers. Upgrade options are available for this model, see upgrade options at
end. This is a very good pre-amplifier that can be used as a buffered
volume control for any amplifier other than ours that does not have a
volume control, or with any amplifier needing a volume control and a
Quality both inside and out
All Audion pre-amps feature a transformer less
design direct cathode coupled with no input, inter stage or output
wound components making this pre-amp extremely fast and capable of
handling the most intricate and detailed passages of music that can be
shown them. Outstanding performance, lightning quick response curves
and terrific transparency
The 1.0 line / phono pre-amp uses 2 x NOS Russian 6H1N-EB
tubes and 2 x Russian 6H23N as standard, it also has a ground lift
switch at the rear to assist in resolving grounding issues by floating
the ground internally above mains ground.
