I know I’m going to regret this, but I’m selling my Audion Silver Knight Premier Preamp Line stage with phono. Class A Triode Line/Phono. 5 inputs which includes a very good phono stage. It was professionally upgraded with Mundorf Silver/Oil caps & internal 7n OCC Silver/teflon wire on the phono stage and 2 of the line inputs.
This preamplifier is MUCH better than the Shindo Auregies I owned immediately before it. It will be very securely packed & shipped with a quad of 1961 usa Amperex 6922 (tested at 103/103)& a quad of of Sovtek.
The Audion website describes this unit ~ "As with all our pre-amps they feature a transformerless design direct cathode coupled with no input, interstage or output would components making these pre-amps 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."
Highly praised by the audio press and rightly so!
"This pre-amplifier performs equally as well as those costing 5 times the price." - Roland Kraft, Hi-Fi exclusive.
"When I am listening to this pre-amplifier I am wondering how solid state could ever be popular." - Olle Lender, Hi-Fi + Music 1996
"The Audion Premier`s performance (phono) is in every sense a thing of beauty, and it let`s you be there and witness the performance."
