As always, build with strong aluminum enclosure, a mark of great workmanship from Yaqin shown again. Cover for the output transformer is made with mirror finish to present the sleek facade.
Use specifically as a phono stage preamp, it has the RIAA equaliser built-in; a mandatory specification of any phono stage preamp. High quality RCA ports and grounding post are sure to ground any possible hums to the lowest.
Driven with a pair of 12AX7 tubes, the sound from this little preamp is definitely beastly to be fed to any power amp. The wide options to roll the tubes to your desired sound signature just makes this preamp a versatile set to complement any combination of turntables and power amps!
