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.

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.

Chord CPA 8000 (CPA8000) Reference Preamplifier
Chord CPA 8000 (CPA8000) Reference Preamplifier
The CPA8000 is the ultimate high end reference product and is the perfect partner to the SPM14000 mono block amplifiers.

In the same double height format to match it has all the features of the already advanced CPA5000 but now includes three pairs of outputs, true dual mono construction with separate power supplies for each channel, and separate left and right frequency EQ adjust.

Using two separate ultra high frequency power supplies gives the best possible channel separation and with our latest low noise circuitry the noise floor performance has been improved to beyond -135dB. Each of the power supplies and the sensitive volume, balance and EQ controls is surrounded by solid milled aluminium shielding to prevent RF interference.
