The New Transcendence Ten RB (Real Basic) affordable vacuum tube preamplifier $899

| Print |
Our Brand new T10 RB is an amazing evolution of our award winning Transcendence Eight series preamplifiers.

With its newly designed mother board, we have executed significant improvements. The T10 RB mother board has separate and isolated ground panels for each section; the high voltage power supply, the low voltage power supply, and the audio circuits. This allows us to produce the quietest ever vacuum tube preamplifier we have yet designed.

The high voltage power supply features a huge pie network ahead of the four active regulators, taking supply noise and interaction down to nearly zero. In addition, there are separate regulated power supplies for the high voltage, the tube heaters, the headphone section, and the optional phono section. We designed the new mother board to take advantage of the newest high capacity power supply capacitors and specify all polypropylene capacitors in the signal paths.

The T10 RB is all tube, using 6DJ8/E88CC tubes in the gain stages.

It includes the provision for our outstanding Vision split passive EQ optional phono section with its own isolated regulated power supplies

The end result of our efforts is a natural, engaging, dynamic, high resolution preamplifier that can interface seamlessly into and improve the most demanding audio systems.

Eliminating many functions, purists never used, significantly reduced our parts cost and build labor time. This allows us to present uncompromised sonic beauty at a much lower cost than you would ever expect.

The Transcendence 10 RB has a precision volume control, a removable IEC power cord, gold plated input and output jacks and a double anodized face plate. Also available is an optional remote control for those wanting to control the volume level from their ideal listening position.

It has four sets of line level inputs (Line 1 used for the optional phono section if specified). It has two sets of audio outputs.

The T10 RB preamplifier also includes, as a standard feature, an exquisite headphone amplifier.

We present the Transcendence 10 RB preamplifier as the best we can currently do at a very affordable price. When you hear it, you will understand why we are so excited.

The following options are available: RIAA adjustable MM/MC phono circuits ($329) and remote control with motorized volume and mute functions. ($299).

The Transcendence 10 RB is available right now.
