Not much to say here. If you know it, you know it's arguably the best tube line stage preamplifier on earth.  (and the best line stage preamp, period).  Only bettered by the new Nagra HD.    (And note when browsing. This is the new model with revised improved quieter tube power supply)
From their website:

A preamplifier is the center of an audio system. Linea represents our quest for excellence in selecting and delivering signal from the source to the power amplifiers, while providing for volume level control. It offers musical enjoyment through refined dynamics and low distortion. Linea is unique due to its extremely short signal path with only one active stage maintained in the simplest topology. It is complemented with carefully selected parts and a state-of-the-art output transformer.
Linea has a robust external power supply for delivering unconstrained sound dynamics and impact. At both micro- and macro-levels, dynamic shadings and headroom seem limitless. The deep, tight, accurate bass is complemented by the transparent and liquid mid-range with the sense of openness and lack of compression in the upper frequencies.

To address the need for separate subwoofers or auxiliary components, a secondary output with a preset level is provided. Linea also offers buffered output with the level control, ready for bi-amplification. The chassis is made of solid aluminum for best magnetic neutrality and resonance control.
