Stereo preamplifier

Almost since the inception of the brand, Audio Research has
produced some of the finest components for music reproduction; this is
especially true with regard to preamplifiers. In 1973, the SP3 was
hailed as the best preamplifier available, and this tradition of
excellence has continued ever since. The Reference Series from Audio
Research was first introduced in 1995 and has been the ultimate
representation of performance, musicality and power. The Reference 6 is
the latest chapter of our story.

The Reference 6 is not simply a
market-driven product, but rather, a solution to a need which arose
after the creation of the Reference SE Series amplifiers. According to
Warren Gehl, who is responsible for sonic development of all Audio
Research products, the new series of Reference amplifiers offer a level
of musical and dynamic capability only made apparent when using the
flagship, two-chassis Reference 10 preamplifier. Both preamplifiers of
the Reference Series need the ability to provide the full benefit of
this new sonic landscape. Increasing the tube count to six in the analog
section, and advancements in the power supply improved both macro- and
microdynamics and lowered distortion.

The Reference 6 also offers better bass control, relaxed purity and
more dimensionality. Further improvements include a more grainless
presentation, greater transparency, better speed, and more continuity
across the musical spectrum. Quite simply, the Reference 6 improves upon
its predecessor in every way for a more palpable and immediate musical
performance. Numerous elements – transformers, capacitors, wiring – are
designs exclusive to Audio Research and the Reference 6.

completely new chassis has allowed not only a more beautiful aesthetic,
but also provides more structural rigidity to assist in the dissipation
of electrical and mechanical interferences. Six premium 6H30 tubes are
now used in the audio circuit (increased from four tubes in the
Reference 5SE) to provide an even quieter background and increased
dynamic range. The tube-regulated power supply is also a new design for
improved sonics. New circuit boards, circuit designs, and larger power
transformer have been implemented to provide robustness and

A new volume control with finer step gradation and higher performance completes the system.
