Once again, Tim de Paravicini has
delivered a product that gets the listener as close as possible to a live
performance, and with exceptional value. Introducing the model 868
preamplifier, with a heritage derived directly from E.A.R.'s flagship preamp,
the 912. For those that demand the best, the 868 features virtually the same

and several load/gain selections for the phono stage.
