ForteVita developed the AudioVisore™ to improve every aspect of the preamplifier design and engineering to meet the required quality,  both at home and in studio.

This Program Amplifier was designed to be extremely detailed and accurate for the sound engineer evaluating the sound quality in a recording studio, but also incredibly comfortable for the audiophile even after many hours of listening without any perceptible sign of fatigue.

This result was achieved by introducing a unique and peculiar brand-new solid state proprietary technology called MC-SGS (Multiple Control - Single Gain Stage) based upon three different independent and interactive controls represented by the Volume, the Gain and the OverDrive modulating the working point of a single gain stage. Volume regulates the amount of the input signal, Gain determines the I/O Voltage Ratio and Overdrive optimizes the spectrum of the harmonic distortion. MC-SGS technology was implemented upon a fully discrete, Class A design, DC coupled, with no overall Feedback or Feedforward.

This technology enables the AudioVisore™ to finely mould the spectrum of the harmonic distortion as well as the perception of the sound by simply regulating the gain stage with these three controls without affecting the frequency response.
