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.

Constellation Audio Performance Series - Perseus Phono Preamplifier
Constellation Audio Performance Series - Perseus Phono Preamplifier
Fully complementary circuitry:
The Perseus's balanced audio circuitry is essentially two mirror-imaged preamp circuits, one to amplify the positive half of the audio signal, the other to amplify the negative half. The fully balanced design cancels the effects of interference-an important capability considering the low level of the signals inside a phono preamp-and also increases slew rate and frequency response.

Constellation Audio Performance Series - Virgo II Preamplifier
Constellation Audio Performance Series - Virgo II Preamplifier
Chassis-width, triple-transformer power supply:
The Virgo power supply design is borrowed directly from the Reference Series Altair preamp. This triple-transformer supply offers separate, isolated feeds for the left and right channels, as well as a separate feed for control circuits. Because each channel of audio cannot be affected by the power demands of the other (or of the control circuits), maximum sonic purity is achieved. The power supply now stretches the full width of the preamplifier, so the preamp section can sit directly atop the power supply.

Constellation Audio - Inspiration Series - Preamp 1.0
Constellation Audio - Inspiration Series -  Preamp 1.0
Triple-transformer power supply:
The design of the power supply in the Inspiration borrows heavily from the Altair II and Virgo II. We chose R-core transformers to power the audio circuits because of their inherently low noise and low radiated magnetic energy -- and because they worked so well in our previous designs. There are separate R-core transformers for left and right channels. A conventional EI transformer powers the control circuits, so the sensitive audio circuits are well-isolated from the noise of the control circuits.

Electrocompaniet EC4.8 Pre Amplifier
Electrocompaniet EC4.8 Pre Amplifier
The new Electrocompaniet referance preamplifier.

For more than 30 years, the name "Electrocompaniet" has been synonymous with the manufacture of great sounding power amplifiers. The numerous prestigious international awards, as well as top ranking reviews, attest to the success and appreciation of the amplifiers.

Since 1999, we have had the same level of world-wide recognition with our reference CD player, the Electrocompaniet EMC 1. The obvious missing link has been a preamplifier matching the quality of the award-winning power amplifiers and reference CD player.

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.
