PA-1 Pre Amp: The PA•1 Line Stage uses a simple design, combining both passive and active circuitry for the best compromise between sonic purity and needed gain.
The volume control works passively until the center detent is reached. At this point, the signal is coupled with a Class A, dual-mono amplifier for up to 6db gain. Unlike typical line stages, the PA•1 only amplifies the signal when gain is needed.
Connections include four inputs, one tape/processor loop and two pair of outputs.
HC-1b Power Supply: The HC•1b Dual Mono Supply is a high-performance upgrade for use with the PA•1 Line Stage or PS•1 | PS•2 Phono Stages.
Two 1.5A transformers (one per channel) are used to improve dynamics, bass control and imaging. Features include detachable Input/Output AC cables and internally switchable input voltage (115~230 volts).

Hometheater HiFi: “The PA-1 allows my system to resolve more of what’s on the recording – the natural nuance, sense of space, timbre, detail and most importantly, the emotion. You get deeper into the tune when you hear a jazz guitarist bend a note subtly in a way that was previously obscured; you hurt, too, the first time you hear the distinct sense of loss and pain in the voice of a blues singer who mourns through a song you’ve heard a hundred times before, but never quite like this. These are examples of how the right equipment, in this case the Monolithic Sound PA-1, allows you to understand the message of the music more clearly – to me that’s what this audio game is all about.”
