Line stage/preamplifier »Calvin« (discontinued)  

Calvin: click to enlarge

"There it is once again, that breath of infinity - utterly transparent, precise spatial image replication; dynamically and tonally nothing comes even close. A first class investment for the ages." We can't possibly add anything further to these words, except to say that they are quoted from "image hifi". Adding a phono board to our »Calvin« line stage replaces one of the five line level inputs with an MM and MC capable input and makes »Calvin« one of the best preamplifiers available - this addition therefore isn't really somuch an option as a must-have.
