Hit The Senses: The Valve-Amplifier L1 is built in pursuit of a goal that is common to all VALVET amplifiers: the transmission of music, free from artefact and manipulation, music that stimulates the senses! Hear for a long time: A simple well thought-out circuit, short signal paths and the best, reliable components guarantee that your favourite music reaches you directly, thus producing long-term pleasure and satisfaction! Employing vales in this circuit does not follow fashion. The design was chosen because with only one amplifying component per channel there is least technology to interfere with the music. Pure Technique, Pure Music! The L1 Preamplifier employs just one powerful dual triode per channel. The circuit topology employed has a number of advantages: low distortion without feedback, excellent linearity and (for valves) low output impedance. The external power supply (solid state power supply now standard) guarantees a hum-free listening experience. All signal paths are hand wired with pure silver. A high quality “Alps” pot is used to adjust the volume.
