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.

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.

Luxman C-900U (C900U) Pre Amplifier
Luxman C-900U (C900U) Pre Amplifier
C-900uThe new C-900u was created for the pursuit of uppermost tone quality. The balanced amplification circuit has a 4-module configuration with independant right/left and hot/cold sound signals to surpress unneccessary noise generation. A combination of the evolved traditional ODNF circuit version 4.0 and sturdy power supply unit has achieved a high signal to noise performance sound quality without distortion. The latest version of 'Lecua 1000', Luxman's original fixed resistance switching type attenuator is used for the volume adjustment mechanism that is the major key of the control amplifier. The number of contacts is set to 88 to allow for more precise volume adjustment. the C-900u is elegant, userfriendly with premium operation.

Luxman C-700U (C700U) Pre Amplifier
Luxman C-700U (C700U) Pre Amplifier
Luxman’s new C-700u preamp benefits from the same uncompromising construction and attention to detail as the D-06u. At its heart lies Luxman’s fourth-generation ODNF (Only Distortion Negative Feedback) amp circuit, which restricts feedback to distortion components only, thus greatly enhancing signal-to-noise performance. This is directly coupled to the LECUA 1000 attenuator circuit, trickled down from the flagship C-900u preamp, allowing an extremely fine degree of volume control and left/right balance adjustment whilst maintaining sound quality at the highest level.
