Audion Silver Night Special Edition Line & MM Phone pre-amplifier

The Audion Silver Night Special Edition line level and MM phono stage is designed to match closely to the looks and sound quality of the rest of our Special Edition range. 

The Special Edition Pre-Amplifier combines a mixture of known topologies and sonic signatures from our Premier range and is a crossover product between our Audion Premier Line/Phono plus and a 2 Box Audion Premier Quattro.  

The Special Edition uses a full choke power supply along with several active power supply stages for the line level buffer stage and also the RIAA Moving magnet phono stage. 

Visually, aesthetically and sonically too, it is designed to closely match the other amps in our Special Edition range. The transformer lid, front panel, knob and valve fillets all share the same parentage so will match your Special Edition power amplifier perfectly.

Audion Silver Night Special Edition Line/Phono Pre-Amp

Audion Silver Night Special Edition pre-amplifiers are partially wired in solid silver having the main audio path in silver wiring, they have active power supplies for both the line level and RIAA phono stage as well as a choke HT power supply. Using the same power supply technology as our legendary Audion Quattro pre-amplifier but based on a quality substrate pcb. The moving magnet  phono stage is also based on our Premier Line/Phono plus 2 box pre-amplifier.  

The Special Edition pre-amplifier has been cleverly designed to keep AC, DC and HT as far apart as possible in a single chassis. The pre-amp has auto-biasing so does not need regular bias changing or complicated setting up. Which also means that a variety of different valves can be used to change the sonic characteristic of this pre-amp.

The pre-amp comes with four Russian New old stock 6H23N valves already matched and fitted and has 1 Moving Magnet phono input as well as 4 line level inputs all switchable from the front panel. There is also 2 pairs of attenuated and 1 pair of unattenuated outputs designed to aid bi-amping or connection to a sub woofer.

Sonically, The 6H23N dual triode valves used in the Special Edition Pre-Amplifier are crisp and tight sounding giving excellent reproduction speed and tonal balance. The 6H23N valves can be swapped out for any of the 6922 family of valves in order to change the sonic characteristics of this pre-amp.

The chassis is made of military grade aluminium, with a durable black powder coated finish. The top plate and organic fillet pieces are finished with mirror polished stainless steel.  The top lid and front panel are finished in Champagne gold to match the other power amplifiers in the Special Edition Range

Product options for the Special Edition Pre Amplifier are limited by the amount of remaining space available within the chassis, however we are still able to fit a remote control volume or a 48 way stepped attenuator, better signal capacitors and even more silver wire for the full audio path and now we can offer WBT Nextgen RCA terminals, as well as  various valve options.

Upgrade options and upgraded product categories direct from the factory.

We offer 2 upgrade classes for the Special Edition Pre-Amplifier. The upgrade classes are 
Insignia Class which uses a full silver wired audio path, better graded components again in the audio path, tantalum resistors in the critical places and WBT RCA terminals
Excelsior Class uses the same as above but with the inclusion of Teflon/Tin foil V-caps, Internal Solid Silver fully wired Interconnects, seiden (or equivalent) switches, a  48 way Stepped attenuator, better power supply capacitors and WBT RCA’s. 

The option to go to full Signature Reference would only be available if the amp was factory hard wired from the start, but at this level we would ideally be recommending the Audion Premier Quattro in either 2 or 4 box variants.
