Vacuum Tube Preamplifier RL-1

The vacuum tube preamplifier RL-1 is a high-end device for audiophiles with rectification vacuum tube 5Y3GT. The stabilization vacuum tubes are EF86 and 6S19P. Heater voltage is stabilized. Anode filtration is supported by the Mundorf MtubeCap capacitors and choke.

The output line tubes are 2 x 6N30P – one per channel. The capacitors on the signal path are AuriCap and pure silver Mundorf GS signal wire are used. The potentiometer of volume control is 2 x 100 kΩ with a motor, produced by Alps. The coupling capacitors are AuriCap and Mundorf.
The whole of the chassis surface is copperised and finished by plastification.
The relay inputs are Takamisawa and CMC gold plated connectors.
The preamplifier features a fluorescent vacuum display module with 5 digits and with an optical filter.
The device has a remote control. The power line transformer has an EI core.
This is a handmade and unique product. All parts have been carefully selected.
