Premier Line (Formerly 0.5) Pre-amps
- Vendor's Recommendation
PREMIER 0.5 LINE LEVEL PRE-AMPLIFIER
Audion Premier Line level pre-amplifier is built on a quality substrate pcb (printed circuit board) as with all our amps they are hand built. The chassis is black powder coated aluminum as is the transformer cover. The top plate and badge are mirror finished stainless steel.
The Audion Premier line level pre-amplifier 0.5 is an active class A device. Built with 5 line level inputs buffered, switched from the front panel, 2 line outputs and a direct un-switched tape output.
The soundstage is phenomenally large. Roll off in both directions is seamless. Resolution is astounding, with absolutely convincing depth even at very low levels. It brings recording to life and places you directly in front of the performance
This 0.5 Line level buffered pre-amplifier is a great match with our power amplifiers. Ideally matched with either ofour ranges of Electron or Proton cables. Upgrade options are available for this model, see upgrade options at end. This is a very good entry level pre-amplifier and can be used as a buffered volume control for any amplifier other than ours that does not have a volume control.
Quality both inside and out
As with all our pre-amps they feature a transformer less design direct cathode coupled with no input, inter stage or output wound components making this pre-amp extremely fast and capable of handling the most intricate and detailed passages of music that can be shown them. Outstanding performance, lightning quick response curves and terrific transparency
The 0.5 line level pre-amp uses NOS Russian 6H1N-EB tubes as standard, it also has a ground lift switch at the rear to assist in resolving grounding issues by floating the ground internally above mains ground. We recommend our Proton or Electron cables with this set up.
