    Audio Mirror Pre-amp

    I am seriously thinking about an Audio Mirror pre-amplifier to go along with my Audio Mirror SET mono blocks, which I think are amazing. Even though he does not show it on his website, Vladimir does still offer it. I am thinking it should be a great match for the amplifiers and it is DHT. Four inputs, two outputs... remote...

    Re: Audio Mirror Pre-amp

    I decided to go ahead an order the Audio Mirror DHT pre-amp. Vlad is making me up a brand new one. It should be an excellent match to the Audio Mirror SET mono amps. I absolute love the amps and am hoping to feel the same about the pre-amp to go with them!

    Re: Audio Mirror Pre-amp

    Vlad told me it is a perfect match for the amps. The only reason he does not have it on his website is he is having a problem finding a place to manufacture the chassis for the pre-amp after moving to Minnesota... he only has parts for three more units until he can get some more chassis made... hopefully will have that resolved soon...

    Re: Audio Mirror Pre-amp

    I am honestly not sure. I trust Vlad's designing with tubes for sound performance. He uses his ears much more so then test equipment.

    That's great that you trust him.
    Just curious what tubes it uses, that's all.

    Re: Audio Mirror Pre-amp

    From a quick search: The Audio Mirror T-61 preamp uses a pair of 6N1P tubes for amplification (a third tube is used for the power supply rectifier).

    Re: Audio Mirror Pre-amp

    I believe that 6922 tubes can also be used, however I have heard that the 6N1P are military grade tubes and sound better in the pre-amp. They also appear to be pretty inexpensive, even NOS... Not sure on the third tube. If Rectifier tubes are interchangeable???? If so then I have a couple very nice ones that I roll in my Dennis Had unit.
