This PAS is built with ALL NEW PARTS in a brand new Dynakit chassis with a new cover, custom made aluminum faceplate and all new knobs.
Original Dynaco circuit on brand new boards that are as close to original PAS boards you can get.
The included tubes:
(4) strong Vintage Raytheon (USA) "black plate" 12AX7 tubes (pictured separately)
(other tubes may be pictured/installed but not included, only the (4) Raytheon Black Plate tubes are included)
High quality film capacitors by CDE (940 series), Supertech, JB-JFX, Illinois Capacitor, Vishay, Panasonic and CDE Orange Drops, only high quality carbon film and metal film resistors were used in this build for even smoother sound.
The modern DC supply provides solid state rectification and replaces the filter capacitor. This cap board also increases capacitance to 47-47-47-47uF and adds a fuse to the power circuit.
This preamplifier has exceptional detail and imaging with the warm sparkle 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 nice phono ground post. The nomenclature printed on the front panel at the selector still reflects the original designations and do not match up with the new selector 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 new 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 photos in the listing for clarification please.
The (Noble) volume control includes the loudness function and is of superb quality. The unit has a brand new balance control, new bass and treble controls and new switches.
The loudness switch is functional. The filter switch, tape monitor and the stereo blend control circuit were eliminated. (dummy fixtures are installed at the tape monitor and blend control locations, they're simply there to hold the knob and fill a void, they are for aesthetic purposes only)
Every piece of this preamp is new - this is not a rebuild, it is a brand new and modernized version of the original PAS and sounds awesome.
The genuine Dynakit PA211 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 a genuine NOS Dynaco amber pilot jewel.
This preamp is very simple to operate. It sounds super smooth, sparkly and musical, just like it should, it's absolutely fantastic.
The original Dynaco circuit with its all new high grade components is hard to beat.
