The perfect compliment to the Angel Power amplifier, simple passive audio path for natural musicality.
The Angel-Pre is all about transparency and natural musical flow. Extensive listening tests led to a simple passive audio design. This couples with advanced integration with your source components and AV systems.
What does this mean for your music?
– An incredibly natural sound for instruments and vocals
– Fine detail resolution and transparency
– Very short audio path to avoid colouration
And did we mention the remote?
Probably overkill, hewn from a billet of aluminium, it’s tactile, it feels gorgeous, and has real switches for positive feel and a long life expectancy.
Alongside the simple audio signal path are more complex switching and integration options. High quality gold crosspoint relays are used to give low noise and musically transparent selection of inputs and outputs.
* 4 inputs for line level sources are available
* Tape loop output and monitoring input
* Line out for connecting to external headphone amp
* G=1 (Unity gain) input to integrate with A/V systems
A high quality ALPS volume control is used, with paralleled gangs for long life, quiet operation. Motorised of course, for operation from the remote control.
Soft Mute provides a ramp-down and ramp up without annoying clicks.
Quiet Mute (music continues at low level) or Silent Mute programmable options
Heavy machined aluminium panels of varying thicknesses clamped together provide a strong self-damping enclosure, preventing sound pressure and vibration from disturbing the musical transparency of the pre-amp.
High quality machined RCA connectors are used to provide low resistance, trouble-free cable termination for many years to come.
Independent supply feeds for the output buffers, plus our low-feedback analogue regulation circuits for the best possible sound quality.
