Reference One Phono Preamplifier. Version 1.5

Reference grade Phono preamplifier. (version 1.5)

The main unit with power supply of 2 unit design. 

The Reference-One use T-LCR type RIAA EQ design, the T-LCR Type is best method for revive RIAA EQ, also is highest cost design.

It uses 12AX7 ,5670(WE396A)  with JENSEN line output transformer for input stage, special made T-LCR type RIAA EQ , 5670(WE396A) with JENSEN line output transformer output stage( with XLR and RCA output).

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

The MC step up transformer use Top model Jensen ( made in USA )



T-LCR Type is Line output transformer drive the LCR network
