Audio Research - LS9 Preamplifier in Silver w/ remote


Retail Price: $2000.00 Your Price: $750.00

The LS9 is an all-new, all-solid-state line level preamplifier which replaces the LS3/3B series. Using a low-voltage, pure Class A gain circuit with direct-coupled output (no coupling caps are used in the signal path), the LS9 yields 12dB of overall gain (factory adjustable to 18dB gain if necessary). Output capability is a substantial 24V RMS from the balanced main outputs. The LS9 also features complete IR remote control of all front panel functions, including a 70-step electronic relay volume attenuator and input selection. The LS9 offers two pairs of dedicated balanced inputs, three pairs of dedicated single-ended inputs; and a full tape monitor loop (single-ended in and out) is also provided. 11 lbs. 19" (48 cm) W x 3½" (8.9 cm) H x 11" (28 cm) D. Handles extend 1.5 " (3.8 cm) forward of the front panel.

Audio Research - Reference 2 MKII Silver Tube Line Preamplifier w / remote


Retail Price: $10000.00 Your Price: $4000.00

This highest level of resolution and musicality has been accomplished in large measure by all-new audio and power supply circuits, incorporating tube rectification (via one 5AR4) and tube regulation (via one 6L6) of the power supply (also packed with the newest Infinicaps, and one 6922). Gain is provided by eight selected 6922 twin triodes, like the REF1. Redesigned toroid transformers also contribute to improved dynamics. 19" (48 cm) W x 7" (17.8 cm) H (standard rack panel) x 15½" (39.4 cm) D. Handles extend 1 ½" (3.8 cm) forward of the front panel. 31.2 lbs.

PBN Audio - Olympia L Preamplier in Black


Retail Price: $12000.00 Your Price: $3500.00

The Olympia-L preamp is an all-FET design with an external MPS mini power supply (9.5"W x 4.25"H x 14.25"D) that has a 375VA transformer with 80,000µF of capacitance. The main transformer features quad secondary windings and HEXFRED diodes for rectification. A proprietary, military-grade, 14-conductor connector of 16-gauge Teflon-sheathed silver wire -- a serious umbilical -- joins the power supply to the preamp proper, which measures 18.5"W x 4.25"H x 14.5"D. This main unit houses four independent regulators and provides 20dB of gain. The Olympia-L’s front panel has a blue LED indicator light, a sensor for the Cary-built remote control, a volume control (24 steps), and a switch to select among sources (two Aux, one CD, two balanced). All controls are clearly labeled in white silk-screened letters, demonstrating what Noerbaek calls his "function without frills" approach to exterior design. All can be adjusted manually, but the small plastic remote is far more handy for setting volume and mute. On the Olympia-L’s rear panel are three balanced inputs, two RCA inputs, and balanced, RCA, and the four BNC outputs for the proprietary interconnect system -- which, of course, is impedance-matched at 75 ohms.
