The heart and the core of our phono preamplifiers are the vacuum tubes, according to us, the most important part of high-end audio technology. Needless to say that signal amplifiers come in A-class design quality, allowing for precise biasing of each, carefully selected vacuum tube and thus reducing the distortion to the minimum. The power supply is always in its own chasis, separate from the amplifier, so that we achieve the highest possible signal-to-noise ratio (SRN). After a long research, we decided to use for our preamplifiers the passive RIAA correction divided between two amplification stages. We are thus able to be precisely in line with the RIAA standard. We use decades-proven wiring setups with current technology components and design elements, thus raising the designs to a new quality. A good example is our fully symmetrical - balanced preamplifier. It is a combination of perfect tube sound and leading-edge components. We are trying to stand out with a unique design, thereby we use precise mechanical components from reputable manufacturers in combination with custom-made wooden casings and accessories.
For us, technology is just a tool. Our main goal is to relieve you of the hassle of deciding whether or not you should buy our Oldstep amplifier. From the moment you hear it, we want you to yearn for it and be wishing you had it already in your high-end setup.
