Tube Box DS3 B
Dual mono balanced tube phono-preamplifier
Made In Europe
High-end tube sound
The Tube Boxes have been an integral part of our product portfolio for many years. Now, the new Tube Box DS3 B adds balanced in- and outputs to the beloved tube amplification. This precision tube phono preamplifier benefits from outstanding circuit technology from Dr. Sykora and uses ultimate components.
Balanced signal transmission
Connect your turntable either with the 5-pin mini XLR cable or standard XLR cables & profit from the balanced signal transmission. Symmetrical, also called balanced, transmissions consist of a hot and a cold (also called + and -) signal. Both signal chains effectively carry the same musical information. The Tube Box DS3 B can extract the final musical information out of the +/- signals and remove all noise that was potentially added along the transmission. All components including tube output and polypropylene capacitors are audiophile grade and guarantee a breathtaking sound experience.
A balanced connection can extract the final musical information, effectively filtering out any noise from interferences stemming from our noisy, modern homes.
The E88CC tubes perform with low noise and microphonics. Enjoy the detailed low end paired with warm highs.
Continously impedance loading
Load impedance can be set continuously via potentiometer. It allows you to seamlessly adjust the impedance during playback
