What does a passive preamplifier do?
Well it takes an input like a CD player and attenuates ( Lowers Volume ) so that it won’t drive an amplifier too hard. Basically this is a passive volume control.
Why use a passive preamplifier?
A passive preamplifier minimizes changes to the audio signal to leave the original audio signal as untouched as possible.
This preamplifier is SO GOOD at doing its job that you will never even know its in the audio path at all. It will be like its not even there. The ONLY thing that it will do is allow you to turn your volume up and down without ANY degradation of the original audio signal at all. Simple but very effective.
Many audio ‘purists’ go with passive preamplifiers because they want to keep the original audio signal as close to original as possible. They don’t want it changed or manipulated even in the slightest.
This device will do that for you.
If I’ve done my job right ( and I have ) you’ll never know this is in your audio path at all.
Some people think that the speakers are the most important part of a music system. While others think the amplifiers are the most important part.
Well every part of a music system is important of course but I believe that the music “source” is the most important part. Why? Because it comes first. Before anything else. Music must be represented to as close to the original as it can be. It must be clear, dynamic, free of noise and most of all it must feel real, alive and have Passion!
Yes passion! A source can definitely have passion! You can feel it when you listen to a song. Music has emotion and passion and a good source can reproduce that emotion and passion and express it through your system.
Without a good source everything after is just stagnant, dull and expressionless.
If your system doesn’t feel alive it’s dead. My Products
I’ve built a brand new website as I thought the old one was kind of boring. This new one has many features I love like Groups and a built in forum plus the ability to chat with your friends and send messages to each other and other members of this blog.
I will talk about my products as well as other products I review real time here. I will keep everyone up to date and answer any and all questions right here from this central website. No more separate websites for my store and my forum. That was too confusing and not easy to keep organised. This will be much better for everyone 🙂
