Audion Premier Quattro line level with moving
coil phono stage 2 box mono-block pre-amplifier is totally hard wired
point to point and hand built using solid core 5 * 9's silver wire in
all its audio path and specially selected and matched components
including some tanatalum resistors, etc etc to make it one of the best
sounding preamps in the world!.. The chassis' are black powder coated
aluminum as is the transformer cover. The top plate and badge are
mirror finished stainless steel. Arguably the finest stock pre_amplifier
in the world
The Quattro is available in a unique all aluminium
Uni-chassis', and includes an MC stage designed for use with the most
sensitive of cartridges, it is a true high-end, high quality product
capable of handling a massive array of sources. There are 4 line level
inputs and an MC input. The Audion Quattro is the finest stock
preamplifier ever made. It has the benefits of both simplicity of
design and superb execution (with only 4 tubes in the entire signal
path from the cartridge, a 2 chassis totally dual-mono construction and
the power supplies use only polypropylene capacitors). There are 17
active power supply stages in each mono-block pre-amplifier.
The soundstage is extremely fluid and controlled. Roll off in both
directions is seamless. Resolution is astounding, with absolutely
convincing depth even at very low playing levels. It brings recording to
life and places you directly in front of the performance. The phono
stage is of a step ip transformer less design, meaning it is incredibly
fast and fluid.
We would recommend only two upgrades to this pre-amp, and
upon Arthur Salvatore's recommendation we would advise customers
purchasing this to include Teflon V-caps and either Vishay Dale stepped
attenuators or Goldpoint.
This Premier Quattro 2 box Line level buffered
pre-amplifier with built in MC moving coil phono stage is a great match
with Audion power amplifiers. Upgrade options are available for this model, however
only 2 are recommended ( V-CAPS & a good quality stepped attenuator
like the Vishay Dale or Goldpoint) see upgrade options at end. This is
an extremely capable pre-amplifier and is a very good match with any of
our range of intermediate or high end power amplifiers.
Quality both inside and out
As with all Audion pre-amps, they feature a transformer less
design direct cathode coupled with no input, inter stage or output
wound components making this pre-amp extremely fast and capable of
handling the most intricate and detailed passages of music that can be
shown them. Outstanding performance, lightning quick response curves
and terrific transparency
The Quattro 2 box line / phono pre-amp uses 4 x NOS Russian
6H23N as standard, it also has a ground lift switch at the rear to
assist in resolving grounding issues by floating the ground internally
above mains ground.
