A pre amplifier or pre-amp is the very hub of a hi-fi system. All your source equipment connects to the pre amplifier. Most common is an active (powered) preamplifier design but there do exist some passive (non powered) designs. Using a separate pre and power amplifier brings about significant audio improvements over an integrated design as it minimises crosstalk and each component benefits from its own dedicated power supply.

Dan DAgostino Momentum Phonostage

Momentum Phonostage Pre-amplifier

Locked inside the grooves of every vinyl record is the most realistic, most natural, most moving sound one could ever experience. The trick is getting that sound off the record and into your speakers. Dan D’Agostino always found this task challenging … yet irresistible. He knew that no matter how much care he took in the design of his phono preamps, there was always more soul lurking within those grooves. With the Momentum Phonostage, he has finally extracted every last bit of music hidden in even the most microscopic fluctuations in the finest vinyl records.

Progression Preamplifier

The Progression Preamplifier adds new features previously not included in a D’Agostino preamplifier. Most noticeably, the Progression Preamplifier features an optional digital module. The digital module adds coaxial, Toslink, and USB capability to the analog base model. A fully differential DAC handles PCM signals up to 24 bit/384 KHz and DSD signals up to 4xDSD (11.2 MHz). This digital module feeds a discrete, fully complementary and balanced analog signal path from input to output. Negative feedback is not used anywhere in the Progression Preamplifier, nor is it necessary. Open-loop distortion is less than<0.006% and the open loop bandwidth extends to over 100KHz.

Constellation Audio Revelation Series - Pictor
Constellation Audio Revelation Series - Pictor
PICTOR

Separate dual mono + control power supply
Dual mono, fully balanced preamp circuitry
Circuit boards suspended to guard against vibration
Line Stage Gain Module circuit for ideal positive/negative signal balance
Dense, machined aluminum chassis panels joined with steel buttresses

Simplicity and sound quality.
Pictor is an elemental version of our acclaimed Performance Series Virgo III line stage. It uses the same core circuit topology as Virgo III, and a few minor changes aside, the same separate power supply. The main difference is that Pictor has fewer inputs. For simpler systems, Pictor is the perfect choice: simplicity and sound quality distilled into a single product.

Unico 90

Unison Research's Unico 90 sits at the top end of the Unico range borrowing a lot of its look and design from the flagship Unico 150 integrated amplifier.

The Unico 90’s dual mono design gives this amplifier more power and control of your music. Boasting 160W (4Ω) per channel the Unico 90 is capable of driving some of the most demanding loudspeakers with ease and aplomb.

On the back of the Unico 90 flexibility is available in spades with a selection of inputs including two balanced XLR as well as standard RCA. There is also 4 + 4 speaker terminals allowing for bi-wiring, and a subwoofer output to add even more depth and enthralment.

PPA-1 Ultra-Quiet Phono Stage

The PPA-1 uses all-analog, discrete FET gain and EQ stages to transform the microscopic grooves in vinyl records into stunningly lifelike music. It includes all the features that serious vinyl enthusiasts demand, such as continuously-variable input loading, MC/MM gain switching and XLR and RCA outputs. It can also be upgraded by adding the PS-5 power supply, which can simultaneously power the PPA-1 and one other Alchemy component, such as the DDP-1 digital preamp.

Avid Reference Pre Amplifier
Avid Reference Pre Amplifier
Little did Avid imagine the arduous path the development of this product would take them upon. Without their perseverance to create a product without equal, any commercially minded organisation would have relented. A tale for another time perhaps, but rest assured this is not a product for the sake of it, but establishes new meaning to the word "Reference".

They originally envisaged the Pre-Amplifier as an expansion of their Pulsare phonostage, simplistically adding line level inputs and a volume control. Totally underestimating their journey of development, research and component evaluation, their appetite for improvement never dwindled. Their goal was simply to create the World's best sounding Pre-Amplifier, sound quality overriding all other design parameters.
