C220 Preamplifiers

C220 allows for electronic, independent level adjustment for each of the eight source inputs via the front panel or remote control.


Channel balance is electronically adjusted and stored in memory. A moving magnet phono stage incorporates time-proven 12AX7 Vacuum Tubes, for simplicity and superior performance. C220 have low-distortion bass and treble controls, invaluable for older recordings, provide a wide range of tonal adjustment and may be bypassed when not needed. This versatile Preamplifier provides connection for various input sources and outputs to drive multiple Power amplifiers.
