The Classic D3a Phono Preamplifier


Since I have been posting about many amps and preamps in my new chassis, people ask if the 'classic' chassis styles are discontinued.


Of course not! All amplifiers and preamplifiers in the chassis with wooden frames and metal plates remain in production and can be ordered.

The new chassis is meant as an alternative design for those who want a more discrete look without tubes, transformer covers and capacitors visible.

Here a D3a preamplifier which just got completed. All components in this chassis style continue to be offered as part of the Classic product line.

The most popular components of them can alternatively be built in the new all metal style. Initially that will be the 10Y linestage, D3a phono and 801A/300B monos.

This particular phono stage is partial silver and will be shipped to its new owner after thorough testing.

Best regards
