Doge 8 Model 8 Clarity Preamplifier Phono section, all tube [Expired]


no longer for sale

The Doge 8 Clarity is an upgraded version of the legendary Doge 8 preamp that has been a marquee preamp for quite some time. The Doge 8 Clarity has the same configuration of the stock Doge 8, (8 tube dual mono design (4 X 12AX7, 4X 12AT7), 3 power transformers three outputs: Two RCA- and one XLR balanced, 4 inputs, MM / MC phono and remote. The phono and high level sections have been re-designed to take advantage of the latest in component technology. The high level section includes a new PCB board, new circuit topology and the addition of Musicap and Clarity capacitors. The phono section removes the JFET transistor hybrid design and uses an all-tube configuration. The upgrade allows the phono section to accept moving coils with an output of .25 mV or greater, straight in, without a step-up transformer. The phono section also benefits from a new PCB and circuit topology. In addition to the above, the Doge 8 Clarity includes internal gain switches for high level and phono so it can be precisely matched to the input gain characteristics of solid state and tube amplifiers. The rest of the Doge 8 remains unchanged and still has the superior build quality and heft of the original Doge 8. The user selects up to 4 gas relay inputs via remote control or front panel buttons. The Doge 8 Clarity uses a finely matched ALPS potentiometer with a channel balance of less than 0.3 The Doge 8 Clarity also uses a “Stand By” feature which keeps a small charge in its relatively hefty capacitor array. This allows for quick warm up upon turn on. The Doge 8 Clarity comes with remote and power cord. The Doge 8 Clarity ships from Chicago IL and is only available through a USA distributor network.
