PRE1 aims at exactly the same target as all our products do,
to achieve a warm, musical and most of all realistic sound
that remains enjoyable even after many hours of listening.
We achieved to give PRE1 a high class performance,
much higher than its price range. It is a great choice to be combined with
a solid state or tube power amplifier.
In both ways PRE1 will give this known warm,
friendly and analytical sound of LAB12.
Internally we use a matched pair of E88CC tubes
in a special configuration and a solid state power supply
with 4 regulation stages offering smart filtering
and more than enough capacity.
Dual mono philosophy and Fine Symmetry® exist in every stage of the internal circuit and of course we use SRSG® topology in this gear too. Special selected parts like MKP audio grade capacitors and resistors with 0.1% accuracy also contribute the production of the final detailed sound and the wider resolution.
PRE1 offers five analog inputs and two preamplifier outputs,
so you can easily drive a bi-amping system or a power amplifier
and active subwoofer(s) with no problem.
Input selection can be performed by the on face rotary
switch or by the remote control.
PRE1 can be purchased in our standard Matt Black or Pearl White
colors but can also be available in a custom color of your choice.
