The PV15 is a remote-controlled vacuum-tube preamplifier designed to serve as the control center for high-performance audio and audio/video systems.

The PV15 features a sophisticated level control circuit designed to allow precisely repeatable level and balance settings. With seven inputs, the PV15 will accommodate elaborate audio systems. The PV15 includes a Theater Loop which provides a locked unity gain setting, making it the ideal component for listeners who’ve been wanting to integrate home theater into their stereos without compromising the performance of their primary music system.

The PV15 zero-feedback line-stage circuit consists of a single-ended triode amplifier using a 6C4 miniature vacuum tube. A direct coupled buffer stage provides a low output impedance to insure that the PV15 can comfortably drive virtually any combination of interconnect cable and power amplifier. This circuit’s simplicity pays dividends in tonal integrity and seductive musicality while offering flexibility in system matching.
