Built with ALL NEW PARTS in a brand new Dynakit chassis with a new custom aluminum faceplate and all new knobs.
Includes (4) New Tung-Sol 12AX7 tubes + 1 (NOS) RCA Rectifier tube
(other tubes may be pictured but not included, only the Tung-Sol / RCA tubes are included)
High quality audio grade film capacitors by Illinois Capacitor (CDE), Vishay, Kemet, Mallory, Supertech, CE Mfg. & Panasonic.
High quality carbon film and metal film resistors by KOA Speer, Kamaya and TE Connectivity, for exceptional sound quality.
The "original style" filament/power supply uses new electrolytic caps and diodes. The 12X4 tube is NOS, an RCA "black plate" vintage tube.
This preamplifier operates silently and sounds simply amazing with that warmth, sparkle and detail that is missing in so many modern designs.
The selector switch is a modern 6 position type. The rear panel has jacks for 5 line level inputs and one phono input for a MM (moving magnet) type turntable and there's a phono ground post. The nomenclature printed on the front panel at the selector still reflects the designation of the original selector and therefore does not match up (verbally) with the new selectors order of operation and input arrangement on the back panel. (See the very last photo in the listing for a visual representation that will help clarify further). Operation however is logical, simple and straightforward. Phono is now located at the far left location labeled (special) the remaining positions now simply follow a clockwise rotation and match the order of the jacks in the rear panel. Starting at phono (special) and rotating to the right you have (Aux/CD) where tape head is located then (Aux/MP3) where phono is labeled, then (Aux/Tuner) where it says FM-AM, then (Aux1) at the position marked FM-MPX and finally (Aux2) is the position labeled spare. See last photo in the listing for clarification please.
The genuine Dynakit PA-211 power transformer is brand new and wound to operate from a standard 120V-125V outlet. (no voltage reducer necessary)
There's a brand new power cord and the pilot lamp is an adjustable LED sitting behind the amber "power indicator" pilot jewel.
Obviously, the volume control, balance control, bass and treble controls and switches are brand new as is all the wiring.
The loudness switch is fully functional. The filter switch, tape monitor and the stereo blend control circuit were eliminated. (dummy fixtures are installed at the filter, tape monitor and blend control locations, they're simply there to hold the knob and fill voids in the faceplate, they are for aesthetic purposes only)
This is not a rebuild, it is a brand new, updated and modernized version of the original PAS.
