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 Premium Preamplifer
PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Preamplifer
The bar has been raised... again.

The DiaLogue Premium preamp is everything you love about the DiaLogue Three; and more. Like the DiaLogue Three, the DiaLogue Premium Preamp is a dual-mono designed preamp, and weighs in at a hefty 53 pounds. Much of that weight is thanks to the pair of heavy-duty power transformers–already recognized as a reference in the industry–that provide increased control and detail. 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.

Audio Research Reference 10 Line Stage Pre Amplifier
Audio Research Reference 10 Line Stage Pre Amplifier
In 2010 Audio Research announced the Reference Anniversary preamplifier, a special limited edition product commemorating their 40th anniversary. It was acclaimed by many as the finest preamplifier available and a fitting tribute to all of the classic Audio Research products that were introduced during the forty years that preceded it. Included in the Reference 10 are critically chosen new components, proprietary custom-made capacitors, wiring, and new connectors that cumulatively provide a level of performance never before achieved. Key Audio Research design traits remain: The signal path is fully discrete, all-tube, pure Class-A, with zero feedback. Other attributes and choices remain, too: Each unit is completely hand-soldered and hand-constructed in our Minnesota facility using the finest materials, with major components such as custom transformers, plated-through circuit boards, and casework sourced locally. All engineering is performed in-house.
