    Joe told me how incredible the pre-amps and amps are. That tells me all I need to know.

    I can’t use the GAT2 on half my amps because its gain is just way too high. The Misho preamp is probably one third the gain but exhibits all the great qualities of the GAT2, and then goes above and beyond.
    The low gain is one of the main reasons I'm looking to try the WoodenPreamp. I've recently tried a Coincident Statement Linestage in between my Lampizator Golden Gate 2 DAC and my Line Magnetic 508ia integrated amp. Unfortunately when one uses the 508ia strictly as an amp the preamp stage is not bypassed, which means the 6sn7s and 6sl7 are still in play. Coupled with the fact that my favorite output tube in the Golden Gate is the very high gain KR242, having the Coincident Linestage in between was a difficult affair. I liked a lot of what the Coincident added to the system - extra detail, deep, tight bass, increased solidity of images and deeper wider soundstage. At the bare minimum, I expect the same from the WoodenPreamp and hopefully a greater sense of ease and less forwardness with the lower gain. Anything beyond that will be icing on the cake.

    I really hate when amplification is wasted. First - too much amplification, than - too much attenuation.
    The WoodenPre is designed to provide with the necessary amplification, but no more. With the headroom if needed.

    Obviously you know what you are doing.

    As a bonus, especially for me, the Wooden preamp works superbly with my other amps as well.

    Re: Misho Myronov tube wooden preamp!

    Guys + Misho - can someone say what the gain is for the WoodenPreamp?

    Re: Misho Myronov tube wooden preamp!

    I’m trying to find it, I think I was told but about 8-11 dB is about right.

    I hope Misho responds with the right gain number.

    Re: Misho Myronov tube wooden preamp!

    Low gain - only 6 dB.
    In most of the cases it's more than enough - todays sources usually have a quite high output signal levels, and in most of the cases normal listening position of the attenuaror is around 7-8 oclock, which is simply a waste. Remember - attenuators are logarifmical.
    I have a version of a pre amp with more gain - when source level is low, and the power amp has low sensitivity. It's build around C3g tube.
    But it's hardly needed usually. Had build only two so far - one was a prototype, and second was build for a friend with a very complex setup with a wide variety of the amps.

    So, c3m pre amp has a gain of 6 dB, high input impedance and low output impedance.

    Perfect match for a modern sources and practically any power amplifier.
