Based on valve designs, the “Preamp 3A” circuit uses Mosfets instead, to combine the technical advantages of Mosfets with the musical benefits of valve sound. The result of this artful balance of audio values in a clean, open, dynamic but sweet-sounding pre-amplifier with a high quality, quiet phono stage.

The “Preamp 3A” also has a MM/MC facility for phono and is probably a good buy for someone seeking to play vinyl. It has a very distinctive sound, akin to that of a valve amp with warm treble and mid range, and is in perfect working order.
