The rega in my opinion is a integrated amp. But you can add a external tube preamp if it has HT bypass inputs.Hi Can anybody suggest good tube preamplifiers to match with Rega Elicit R srereo amolifier?
Hi ImtiyazThanks for the response.I am trying to make the sound sweet in the mids and treble.I have floorstanding speakers.
Hi!!Anyone using the FX Audio Tube 01? Have been eyeing it for a while due to mixed reviews.
I have been using Fx audio Tube preamp (buffer) with Voshkod Tubes for almost 6 months with tpa 31186-D2 chip amp on my TL towers and its sound very good and i suggest if u are new to tubes stuff then u can start with it as its best bang for price. Get a new one and don't forget to change the tubes (as stock one is Chinese and sounds shrill).
I agree.Hi Shubham,
Do you feel the buffers work . Am opening a Pandora's box with different opinions but am not sure one can get the same tuby signature sound from a Tube Buffer unless its a preamp or something . I have checked back to back listening to : Full tube integrated , Hybrid Tube amp and with a pure tube buffer. The former two have the tube magic but the pure tube buffer (without gain) alters sound in a good way but does not seem to exhibit the signature characteristics of Tube sound.
I agree whole heartedly. Try some British preamps like those from Croft. One British brand that was not mainstream was the Armstrong. These can be had for a song these days. Transcendent Sound from America is a modern preamp that sound good. Someone in this forum had one; if my memory servres me right. CLUE: Look at tube preamps with minimal feedbackI agree.
Tube buffers will show you very little of tube magic.
I would personally like both pre and power to be tubes but due to most speakers being made inefficient, tube pre is the best these days.
