Description

SPL Elector

SPL Elector is a true high-end pre-amplifier without the high-end price tag, superb build and performance and hand-made in Germany.

The centrepiece of a great HiFi system is the preamplifier.

This is the preamplifier for the lover of pure analogue technology. With motorized volume control, retro-look-VU-meter, tape monitor and the all superior VOLTAiR technology the Elector brings analog sources to new life.

The big 45mm Volume control is milled from solid metal. Its mass together with the  motorized Alps RK27 “Big Blue” potentiometer enhances the “spoon in the honey” feeling even further.

The red marker LED makes the setting visible even in darkened environments.

The volume can be remote controlled with any infrared remote control, that the Elector simply learns.

To do this, press the IR programming button and then the buttons for louder and quieter.

Up to six (6 !) analogue stereo sources can be connected to the Elector. The Elector offers three pairs of balanced inputs with XLR connectors and three pairs of standard inputs with gold-plated RCA connectors.

A tape monitor circuitry is quite retro. Who still owns a cassette recorder or a tape machine? Who still has an equalizer?

To put it another way: Who would like to do it and cannot do it because no manufacturer offers a tape monitor circuit anymore?

Well, those who want can again.

On the output side, power amplifiers or active loudspeakers can be connected to the preamp output sockets using XLRs.

The Direct Out via RCA picks up the output signal before the volume control and thus offers the possibility to connect a headphone amplifier.
