Audio Detail Chela-03 Valve Pre-amp with Dac

Product Description:

The new Chela-03 valve pre amplifier and integrated DAC is, designed to reproduce the quality and detail of today's high resolution audio recordings. The valve pre-amplifier features 2 x 6SN7's, one of the best audio valves around and a 5922 double triode to give a good gutsy low impedance output suitable for driving even medium or long cable runs. The pre amplifier has again of 12db, with a zero feedback design, therefore avoiding some of the over load situations that occur in many valve and transistor pre amplifiers in the market today.

Offering three analogue inputs and three digital inputs, this makes the Chela-03 a flexible and desirable pre amplifier to suit most High Fidelity installations...  The Pre amplifier stage has been designed to be as transparent as possible, to avoid colouration of the sound.....

Coupled to a pair of highly regarded Wolfson 24/192 WM8712 DACs, this is a winning combination! The dac inputs featured are Optical, Coaxial and finally USB for a feed from laptops etc. All simply selectable from the front panel.


We keep the pre amp/dac simple, the DAC is fully automatic, simply locking to the fastest frequency it can, with an indicator to show a lock of greater than 96Khz..  Just press and select your input! This is a Pre-amplifier and DAC designed with the “KISS” principle!

Two separate power supplies keep the voltages clean and very, low noise even the heaters are smooth DC!
