The Firebird Tubes Preamplifier  


 

The Firebird is Audio Experience Level 4 tube stereo preamplifier with MM/MC phono stage. 

The line stage use one Western Electric 417A / 5842 tube with one Tango NP-126 line output transformer construct (NOT NFB) for each channel.
The phono stage use one ECC83 and one ECC82 construct CR type RIAA EQ curve design, the CR Type is good method for revive RIAA EQ curve (NOT-NFB) for each channel.
The MC step-up transformer use Hashimoto HM-3 ( made in Japan )

The The Firebird 's application of a highly efficient solid-state voltage regulator with 6X4 Tube for current regulator and Hi-B R-Core choke in the HVB+ power supply . Also it use the external power supply get highest S/N.
