Introducing the HERITAGE product line


The first unit of my third new product line is finished. The Heritage phono preamplifier.

This category is positioned between the Compactron and Intrepid product lines.

The first member of this line is a phono stage with LCR EQ and D3a tubes.

It is very similar to the classic D3a phono with some minor upgrades to circuit and power supply.

All the gear in the Heritage line has some common attributes.

They all consist of two all metal chassis (external power supply). Except the DAC which will have 3 chassis.

All units use fully transformer coupled circuits (copper transformers standard, silver optional).

All power supplies use 4 rectifier tubes in full wave bridge configuration and choke input filters.

Lifetime warranty on parts and labour, except for the tubes which carry a 2.5 year (30 month) warranty.

3 different styles of feet are available to choose from.

The feet are easily exchangeable by the user.

Initially the heritage line will consist of this phono, a line preamplifier with ELROG ER801A, a DAC with the same tube and a set of mono blocks with DHT driver and output tube.

Here a peek under the hood of the phono

First test run with bottom lid still open for measurements and feeding into the Intrepid line preamp:

The Heritage amps and preamps will be shown at the upcoming Munich High End in Booth F06, Hall 2

Stay tuned for updates as the rest of the Heritage line will be completed this month.

Best regards
