PREDA is a solid-state preamplifier with analogue IN / OUT and employs a state-of-the-art autoformer type volume control system. The transformer taps are switched using super reliable reed relays from UK manufacturer Pickering Interfaces and incorporates 54 steps allowing precise setting with perfect Infrared remote control. Unlike the more typical conventional resistive attenuator, this transformer system loses no part of the signal as heat and enables more accurate control of the listening level.
PREDA also includes Aurorasound’s newly developed discrete amp modules which feature exceptional bandwidth and ultra-low distortion. It can balance input signal sources and drive any type of power amplifier with excellent signal control.
PREDA was developed adopting a completely new modular concept and deploys independent blocks comprising power supply, input and output stages for each L/R channel. A heavy-duty solid aluminium chassis, extruded knobs and anti-vibration isolating feet are employed to achieve the highest levels of musical performance, operation and aesthetics.
