Silbatone L-105 Preamplifier


L105 Line Amplifier is an innovative adaptation of the symmetrical,fully balanced circuits used in classic tube studio gear.

A balanced FET input stage drives a differential 8416 triode stage which is buffered by balanced parallel JFETs. The output is servo-controlled to avoid the need for output capacitors. Remote control is provided for source selection and volume control, provided by a Tokyo-Kouon broadcast grade attenuator.

All audio cabling is silver litz. The 8416 triode is a super tube and it sets the character of the L105 in a region that is certain to please music lovers from both sides of the tube/transistor discourse.

Output impedance - 200 ohm
Input impedance - 47 k
