The aluminum faceplate has updated (modern) nomenclature printed on around the selector knob, it matches the selectors functions and also the rear panel orientation and label. Again, the indicated selector functions match the rear panel labeling and follow the designated order on both the faceplate and the rear panel label. There are no provisions for a filter, loudness or tape monitor switch, so those functions are eliminated. The stereo to mono blend switch is also omitted, and the volume control is relocated above the balance knob as shown in the photo. The rear panel has jacks for 5 line level (high level) inputs and one phono input and there's a phono ground post.
NOTE: Due to limitations of the selector switch, there are no tape loop or tape monitor functions. You will not be able to use this preamp for recording. This preamp is designed for playback only. It is suggested to have only one source at a time playing to reduce the potential for crosstalk.
The PAS Tube Preamplifier uses the tubes listed below
(4) 12AX7 Preamp Tubes
(1) 12X4 Rectifier Tube
You are not required to purchase the tubes from us, but we'd appreciate it.
If you choose to source your own tubes, your preamplifier will still be fully tested, but it will ship without tubes.
If you want to source tubes from us, please view the PAS tubes page.
