Control 2 Preamplifier
The most musical and transparent preamplifier in the world (so we are told)

We believe our Control 2 preamplifier will stand comparison with the very best available at any price. Our design is an exercise in minimalism in the service of music. At it’s heart is a very pure line amplifier utilising matched j-fets and non-magnetic Vishay-Dale resistors. There is essentially no impact on the signal passing through. The result is pure. Just music, with nothing added, and nothing taken away.

Because we want your music to be at the fore, our user interface is simplified so that it responds to your needs without calling any attention to itself. The large rotary control allows you to set volume level precisely. A slim and beautiful aluminium cased remote handset allows complete control of level during listening. Input selection is via a simple push button panel. This simplicity does not come at a cost, as complete flexibility is provided, with the preamplifier easily forming the heart of a purist 2 channel system, or integrating seamlessly into a complete combined 2-channel / home theatre installation.

The Control 2 preamplifier incorporates a very low noise high energy power supply and the interior is kept free of electronic noise, with no microprocessors or other noise polluting elements. This care and attention contributes significantly to the purity of the music that you hear. When partnered with our Reference 2 Monoblock Class A Power Amplifier or Duo Power Amplifier the products interconnect and interact seamlessly as a system in response to your needs.

Our universal chassis design fully supports our musical goals. Constructed from heavy aluminium, stainless steel mesh, and supported optimally on three custom designed feet, the non-resonant, non-magnetic structure presents a beautiful, architectural look.
