Audio by Van Alstine Fet Valve CF [Expired]


no longer for sale

Original owner. FETs in power supply only. Tube only throughout the audio chain.

Each gain stage (meaning each half of each dual triode tube) is independently regulated.

Controls for stereo/mono, low/high gain, filter. 6 sets of inputs; 2 line outputs. Headphone jack. Don't know if it is possible to do better for the money.

"I highly recommend the Audio by Van Alstine FET Valve CF Preamp. It is an all-tube design that isn’t crazy expensive like so many competing products on the market. It has been designed with care to perform in just about any system I can imagine. And the sound is not overly mellifluous as one may wrongly expect based on the tube design. Instead, you get a sound that is accurate, extended, clean and with lifelike transient response. Sure the tubes add a touch of the golden hues tube lovers crave, but that doesn’t define or dominate the sound you hear. It’s simply a natural smoothing of the rough edges adding a nice bloom to what you hear. The FET Valve CF Preamp is also capable of excellent staging in both width and depth."
