PRE Stereo Preamplifier

Based on the EMM Labs reference preamplifier, the Meitner PRE includes a non-contact switching system and discrete dual balanced signal paths. Its patented software-based analog volume control ensures zero signal bandwidth degradation across the entire volume range, and its powerful Class A stage makes it effortless to manage cables and loads. Featuring a highly efficient, low-noise power system, Meitner PRE delivers unparalleled performance so you can listen to your music collection even after curfew.

Meitner PRE has 3 pairs of analog stereo inputs:

1 pair balanced (XLR)
2 pairs unbalanced (RCA)

as well as two pairs of stereo outputs:

1 pair balanced (XLR)
1 pair unbalanced (RCA)

Both balanced and unbalanced outputs can be used simultaneously to create versatile configurations, such as connecting balanced outputs to a main amplifier and unbalanced outputs to a subwoofer or headphone amplifier.
