The Voxativ Ampeggio preamp is constructed by Voxativ chief engineer Stefan Noll. His team is also manufacturing the unit in Fulda/Germany. Mr. Noll did develop a fast and complete noise-free circuit that is extremely dynamic and perfectly made to fit Voxativ mono block amplifiers and all other amplifiers, even solid state. A sonic revelation with a separate power supply and optional RCA NOS tubes.
Inside of this preamp Voxativ is using a solid state rectification, no chokes and a complete regulation of all voltages with tubes. The musical way though this preamp is designed without any components except the output capacitors by Mundorf.
Your music signal is transported by silver wires. There is no potentiometer inside. An attenuator with motor driven infrared remote control from Switzerland does the job and switches in 24 steps between 24 high end resistors. The benefit: Extreme resolution and crystal clear music. Also implemented: An excellent tube based MC phono stage. This was realized with 4 tubes and Lundahl MC step-up transformers. To keep the preamp completely noise free in MC position the power supply is put in an extra box. No noise. No hum. Never.
This is no preamp that is smoothing up everything. It is a very dynamic machine that loves details and brings out the most emotional musical experience.
Also: Lots of other tube amplifiers do have problems to stay noise free with 100 dB speakers. Not this one nor the matching monoblocs.
The offered unit is one year old and from our showroom in Berlin. It has 5 years warranty. Tubes: 45 days
