Line Magnetic LM-512CA

Line Magnetic LM-512CA

Audio Preamplifier Vacuum Tube

 

The LM-512CA is Line Magnetic’s flagship preamplifier. This preamplifier uses two 6KZ8 tubes for voltage amplification, two 6922 tubes for the driver stage and American RCA 22DE4 tubes for high voltage rectification. A large volume potentiometer sits in the center of the front panel allowing independent adjustment of each of the two channels. It has a balanced XLR, 3 RCA inputs and also RCA and XLR outputs. The Balance phase selection allows to choose the selection between American phase and British phase input Mode.

The use of high quality components (Multicap, BC Axial, Philips, Panasonic Relay) wired in the air for the most part is the guarantee of exemplary reliability. Its transformers output are of EI type, specially designed for power supply. A selector on the rear of the preamplifier allows the user to select the phase of the XLR input, allowing connection of almost any source. Nothing but top grade components are used in the LM-512CA preamplifier, such as American RTX Multicap capacitors, Danish Jensen capacitors, German Mundorf MCap capacitors, NCC capacitors, Nichicon capacitors, Kiwame capacitors, a Motorola high current rectifier bridge and Panasonic relays.
