The Mini-lode

The Mini-lode


This excellent performer is designed to be the next of kin to the Motherlode, featuring much of the same architecture yet in a compact 2-chassis design. Separate shielded signal chassis and outboard power supply work in tandem for ultra-low noise and maximized performance that bellies any preamplifier out there.

Excellent shielding and noise rejection via the separate signal chassis in a full aluminum enclosure
High quality film capacitors used throughout the signal path, star ground architecture and point-to-point wiring
Completely analog design for purity and no grain or solid state harshness
User-variable gain and cathode follower output for very low impedance and the ability to drive any amplifier
Fully outboard tube power supply using a 5AR4 slow start rectifier and three OA3 gas-charged regulators
