JUST REDUCED AGAIN!
One of my favorite of all time great pre amplifiers!
Very hard to decide if this or the VAC Ren, Sig. Mk. II is the very best tube pre amp in any of my systems.
They both sound AMAZING & I would hate to have to live on the difference.
The VAC was a 2 chassis design & did have the mm/mc phono option.
The Tube is a single chassis but does something very different & innovative.
It only powers the tubes that that you select on the input which means that if you change inputs - you'll have to wait about 20 seconds for the new input tubes to warm up & your tubes should last forever!
This Einstein Audio "The Tube" Preamplifier is in excellent condition with low hours and low use.
The Tube represents the heart of EINSTEIN’s current lineup of innovative audio components.
Not a remake of legendary vintage architectures,
The Tube is instead based on a radical new concept full of novel ideas and proprietary execution.
It appropriates the highest potential of tube technology while simultaneously insisting on uncompromised test bench performance.
For Roland Kraft of Image and Holger Barkse of Stereo (two popular German audio magazines), The Tube combined the very best sonics and most flawless measurements ever encountered!
- Volume control outside the signal path
- Fully balanced, true dual-differential dual-mono design
- Unique high-current output stage previously elusive with tubed components
- Ultra-low output impedance
- Shortest signal paths with point-to-point wiring
- Wide bandwidth circuitry
- 3 x balanced inputs, 2 x single-ended inputs, 2 x tape outputs
- S/B ratio >95dB
- THD 98dB
- Output impedance 50 Ohm
- Tube complement: 18 x E88CC/6922 dual triodes and 1 x ECC82 dual triode
- Weight 15 kg
I also have the matching Einstein The Final Cut OTL amplifiers available & will make someone a very attractive package deal!
