SC12 - Triode Pre-Amplifier

SC12 - Triode PreAmplifier

Simply uncompromising.The SC12

What happens when we develop a preamplifier from ground up with the objective of zero tolerance policy in terms of design compromises and with the goal of achieving the ultimate musical performance?

SC12 is the answer.

All components which are critical for the end result, are manufactured especially for this preamplifier and let us just name a few:

Hand made line output transformer; power transformers for each voltage line with specially paper in oil power supply capacitors.

Every potentiometer, switch, regulator and controller is custom made for us by Elma Switzerland and here we would like to point out the Autoformer 34 Steps to illustrate the level of quality. It has 48 steps and can thus adjust the volume levels ultra-finely.

Appearance, of course, is of the outmost importance so front panel and all the knobs are handmade from the best aircraft grade aluminum, being cut to the extremely small tolerances and later on hand polished to achieve one of a kind look.

In all our products we are very passionate regarding the use of directly heated triodes (DHT), as our standpoint is, that without them, ultimate expression of music reproduction would not be possible.

In case of SC12, our tube of choice in the output is extremely fine and musical NOS VT25 tube, working hand in hand with specially developed and hand made line-out transformer.

With all said, we strongly believe that we managed to create one of a kind preamplifier which deserves your attention.
