This listing is for a well cared for FET Ten line stage preamplifier and outboard power supply. This is an 'old school' stereo unit built back in the late 1980s by the great
Nelson Pass. It uses discrete FETs throughout with no op-amps in sight.
It has tape outputs, selector switch for five inputs, a stepped
Nobles balance and volume control. Be warned that there is no phono
stage, only a line level input

Opening
the case of the 10/HL reveals an amazing layout - all discrete
components, gold plated circuit boards and an attention to detail that
would make a mil-spec electrical engineer gawk in admiration. Output
capacitors are basic ERO polypropelenes and the resistors appear to be
very nicely made metal-films. There is also an outboard power supply
that keeps hum down to near zero.

It has the ability to resolve the smallest details in the recording.
The brush of the cymbal, the breath against the microphone, the way the
stick hits the drum and a myriad of other audiophile tricks that I crave
in a high performance preamplifier. This is one high resolution piece
of gear and on everyone of my recordings I heard details that I never
knew existed before. But this resolution does not lose out in
musicality. There is a natural sweetness to the treble and the midrange
is remarkably grain free. The bass is deep and well defined.
Instruments have body.
Considering
the performance, a used FET-10/HL is an audio bargain. Prices vary
since this was never a mass produced unit.

Under rated at an 7!
