We have current NEW in stock Audible Illusions M3B Preamplifier.

Thirty years ago Audible Illusions began production of the first
Modulus preamplifier, a component that set new standards for sonic
performance and reliability. To date over 20,000 Modulus preamps have
been manufactured with over150 excellent product reviews from audio
critics around the world.

Adhering to our circuit design philosophy that “simpler is better”
and based on the proven superiority of single-ended, triode-tube designs
our engineers have continuously refined the preamp. To list all the
innovations brought forth by our designs would be difficult. The
elimination of cathode followers, buffers, negative feedback,
paralleling tube output stages, designing new Teflon film capacitors and
exploring better mechanical interfaces are but a few innovations that
has made Audible Illusions a pioneer in modern-day tube technology.

Compared to previous generations the new M3B adds a host of features
and refinements. Circuit boards have been redesigned to further simplify
the signal path, improve switching and reduce vibration. This latest
design utilizes special direct relay switching resulting in improved

Today the M3B is one of the few full-function preamplifiers made. For
vinyl record and CD lovers alike this preamp offers unparalleled
musical performance. It is the finest preamplifier we have ever made and
continues to be the benchmark by which many others are compared.
