LS 100 Tube Preamp
The design goal of the LS 100 was to pick up where the 9.0SE, our first product to be produced, over seven years ago, to the next level. We strove for improved sonics, aesthetics and functionality.
Single-ended design with 10 function remote control, (2) 6SN7 (Driver) and (1) 5AR4/GZ34(and equivalents) rectifier. Single gain/buffer stage, phase inverting, five standard inputs, one Monitor input and tape output, one Home Theater Bypass (HT/BP) input and three main sets of RCA outs.

Preamp Functions Include:
The LS 100 is built in the same size enclosure as the KWA 100 amplifier and has the same lines and aesthetics, including backlit logo. Taller enclosure (5″) allows for greater range of rectifier tubes to fit inside the enclosure.
Sonically, the LS 100 offers a greater control, ease, musicality and resolution, all perfectly balanced for the ideal musical experience. Frequency response is flat from 20Hz to well beyond 100Khz. Soundstage is extremely wide and detail and micro-dynamics co-exist with a tube warmth and natural musical presentation that must be experienced!
