Audiophile Review's Preamps News & Reviews Page

An audiophile preamp accepts audio inputs (mostly analog), switches the inputs and raises the level of the selected input from line level to a point where a power amplifier can boost the sound to a more meaningful volume.  Audiophile preamps can take digital inputs.
