ALLNIC AUDIO H 3000 Phono Preamplifier

Directly from South Korea this amazing valve phono preamp.

A two chassis unit, one for the power supply, one for the preamp...the bigger chassis houses two amplification tubes per channel, two additional tubes per channel for power regulation, so we have a total of 8 tubes in the main chassis. The Allnic is a transformer-coupled phono preamp and the main chassis also houses all the transformers.

It has two attractive current meters on the front panel and a large central knob for the inputs. There are two MM inputs and two MC inputs to choose from. Simply the best for multi cartridge systems ;)

The Allnic sounds like I never heard in my system...quiet, very dynamic, reveals the nuances of music so beautifully, especially in the low frequencies, and reproduces an incredible soundstage.

In conclusion simply an amazing preamp...not the perfect one (does exist?), but a very special phono stage.
