10Y Line Preamplifier


Here some photos of the first new gear built in 2020.

A 10Y Linestage in a very unique color combination.

Gold anodised metal plates, metallic graphite grey transformer covers and capacitors. Wood chassis in a special veneer called silver carbon effect maple.

Center mounted toggle on off switch instead of the rotary switch which I normally use.

No power indicator LED. The glow of the ELROG ER801A is sufficient to show that power is turned on.

I got a small batch of wooden chassis made in this veneer. If you want a line or phono stage in this wood, please contact me.

Best regards
