    I saw the price and nearly fainted. Everything is getting very expensive. Just wish I hit the lottery. I'd push the buy button on that baby.

    Re: Nagra's new HD Preamp debut at RMAF

    The volume control looks interesting:

    The volume control is a patent pending technology that allows perfect level matching with a much more transparent sound compared to pots and switch resistor technology, because there is no attenuation of the input signal, just an automatic selection of a tap on the Nagra custom output transformer.

    Nagra has a long heritage of great preamps. I used to own a Nagra PLL. Still love my Nagra VPS that I've owned for years now...

    This HD preamp seems to be outstanding...very curious to hear it !

    It looks like a reference level preamp for a premium price. I bet the sound quality is at the highest level. Disappointed with only two balanced inputs though. Right now, I have three balanced sources.
