This handcrafted tube phono preamplifier is an exceptional opportunity to own an exclusively built unit, that will allow many music lovers to hear all the nuances of Your beloved vinyl with a rich, deep, dynamic, transparent, and detailed warm sound.
Many of the best solutions have been developed in this phono preamp to reach the greatest audiophile-sounding results: This tube phono preamp designed with LCR phono stages implements the RIAA equalization using passive components between the active tube gain stages, in much the same manner as a loudspeaker crossover, instead of doing the equalization within an active stage. DHT (Direct Heated Triode) conception is used, in both cascades, and the pentodes in the first and second stages work in triode mode! This unique conception found and created by me, pulls out all the music from your lovely vinyl records. An external power supply, point-to-point soldering technology, two-stage full tube amplification, and only the best quality components, and parts were used as:
Valvo and Telefunken matched pairs, (NOS) tubes.
Black Gate, Jensen PIO, Jensen polyst., Audio Note, Mundorf, ROE capacitors.
Audio Note, Allen Bradley, Erie, Rosendahl, Siemens resistors.
This unit was made by "The Note" company  /the-note.eu/ , branded as "Vintage Lab" with others in limited quantity (about 20 units) as a testing prototype phono preamp to develop "The Note" top of the-range phono preamplifier.
Can be switchable (soldered pins), 100-120 Volts to 220-240 Volts.

Questions for the seller
For anyone on the fence about this piece: I bought almost an identical one a few months and let me just tell you, it is DYNAMITE. Paired with a good silver SUT (I'm currently A/Bing Kondo Sfz against an S.A. Lab), the sound is HUGE with unreal holographic imaging. It has easily bested every phono I've ever had in house (Boulder, Aesthetix, VdH Grail, Allnic, Manley, Doshi, Coincident...all good but rendered merely "competent" compared to the involving, harmonically rich sound of this puppy). You won't find a DHT phono anywhere near this price. Don't wait, jump! You won't regret it... Mike
Thank You very much Mike for the kind words, a good review is a reward for the work I love and do !
