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.

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Seven Mono Power Amplifier
PrimaLuna DiaLogue Seven Mono Power Amplifier

The DiaLogue Seven shares much of its basic circuitry with the DiaLogue Five stereo power amp. The novel phase splitter and driver stage implementation have been adapted for monaural functionality in linearity, distortion, and power delivery. We accomplish this by using an industry unique dual feedback topology: Cross coupled current feedback for superior impulse behaviour and gain stability at any level.

PrimaLuna DiaLogue Three Preamplifier
PrimaLuna DiaLogue Three Preamplifier

Continuing with PrimaLuna’s founding principle of offering sophisticated components with advanced features for an exceptional price, the DiaLogue Three Preamplifier is yet another winner in PrimaLuna’s string of first place finishers.

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Three is its size: the dual-mono designed preamp weighs in at a hefty 24kg… that’s some serious iron! Much of that comes from its new, heavy-duty, DiaLogue class power transformers – already recognized as a reference in the industry – that provide increased control and detail.  And in the unlikely event that one of the transformers should overheat, DiaLogue’s innovative new PTP-circuit cuts the primary power, allows the unit to cool down, and then resets itself.

Parasound JC2 BP Preamplifier with Cinema Bypass
Parasound JC2 BP Preamplifier with Cinema Bypass

Parasounds latest JC2 BP helps to bridge the gap between the mostly digital world of AV multichannel listeners and the mostly analogue world of two-channel listeners. Many of the latter reject the former because they believe that multichannel digital pre-pros and AVRs will compromise the purity of their beloved analogue systems, and their budgets and/or living arrangements can't accommodate two entirely independent systems.

Croft Micro 25 Pre-amplifier
Croft Micro 25 Pre-amplifier
What to say? Intended to be a budget level pre-amplifier priced at a reasonable £700. This pre-amp delivers a very impressive performance.

"As Glenn's friend, long time Croft amplifier devotee and the designer of the Croft website I have been lucky enough to have access to all of the products in the current range. In a recent listening test between this pre and the more expensive Micro 25 version "R" I jokingly said to Glenn "it's too good can't you do something to muddy it up a bit?"

Croft Micro 25 Basic Pre-amplifier
Croft Micro 25 Basic Pre-amplifier

Glenn Croft's response to the credit crunch. Some customers were asking for even cheaper products and now Glenn has delivered.

This Micro 25 Basic pre-amplifier uses a very simple circuit. Somehow the music has areas of openess and honesty that considerably more expensive valve pre-amps do not reveal in quite the same manner. A true bargain.
