Cambridge Audio 851 Pre-Amplifier The pre-amp stage is all about minimal colouration. Take the source signal and pass it onto the power amp stage with as little interference as possible. That’s exactly what the 851E does, and coupled with its solid-state volume control, it retains audio signal purity and precision even at the lowest listening levels. The toroidal transformer helps, as does our insistence on using only audiophile-grade components; many hours of fine tuning also play their part. The 851E has a broad range of connection options, including three switchable between unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR, the later ideal for high-end sources. Traditional sources get six RCA unbalanced inputs, plus there’s a dedicated sub woofer output and two sets of speaker terminals.

Plinius Tautoro Made in New Zealand! $14750 - $16200 depending on options Designed to support Plinius' top end power amplifiers, the Tautoro Preamplifier has a comprehensive array of inputs and outputs. Aesthetically it aligns with the Koru phono stage and Mauri source components as these units are likely to be situated in a visual stack, but its electronics design complements the traditional top end power amplifiers. There are balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connection to the 5 line inputs, home theatre bypass loop and dual outputs for bi-amping or multi room installations. There is also an opportunity for an optional phono input to be added in place of one line input.

Moon Evolution 850 Pre-Amplifier  Targeted to the discerning listener who desires uncompromising musical reproduction, the 850P features numerous proprietary technologies. Our M-Octave Damping damping system that eliminates the sonically degrading effects of microphonics by mounting the main audio circuit on an 8-point floating suspension. The result is a more natural, liquid and lifelike sound. Since listening environments are typically loaded with acoustically induced vibrations that originate from the loudspeakers, we use M-Octave to isolate the 850P from these microphonic-causing vibrations, allowing you to hear more music, exactly the way it was recorded.
