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.

Anthem STR Pre Amplifier
Anthem STR Pre Amplifier
STR Pre Amplifier

The revolutionary STR Preamplifier is a new type of audio component that gives you more control and more refinements, including more connection options and more advanced technology, in a single, easy-to-use component.

Designed, engineered, and Crafted in Canada, the STR Preamplifier combines the benefits of an advanced preamp with the power of a processor, as well as functions like leading-edge DAC, onboard Anthem Room Correction (ARC™), customizable bass manager for mono or stereo sub outs, MM and MC phono inputs—far more than the average preamplifier.

Dan DAgostino Progression Pre Amplifier
Dan DAgostino Progression Pre Amplifier
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.

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.

PS Audio BHK Pre Amplifier
PS Audio BHK Pre Amplifier
Introducing one of the most remarkable musical instruments in the world, the BHK Signature Preamplifier. This exceptionally built vacuum tube preamplifier opens up the music and reveals nuances, life and space not previously heard on your system. It is the perfect interface between your sources and power amplifier. Designed by Bascom H. King, the BHK Signature distills Bascom’s 50 plus years of high-end audio design experience into a single masterpiece of audio amplification. “This is the best sounding preamplifier I have ever designed or heard,” and that’s saying a lot for a man of Bascom’s experience. Preamplifiers play a critical role in any separates audio system, strategically positioned between sources of music: CD players, phono preamps, DACs, tape recorders and tuners – and your power amplifier – the preamp serves essential roles of control and isolation. Control is simple in concept, but extraordinarily difficult to design in an acoustically transparent manner. Control duties such as input switching, volume, balance, and amplification can place unwanted acoustic thumbprints on the music if not designed with extraordinary care. The challenge in any design is to do as little damage to music’s purity as possible.
