On list is a very musical piece of audiophile-grade preamplifier by Promitheus Audio.
The model is called TVC SE. Each unit contains two individual large multiple tapping transformers housed in one box so virtually the volume control is operating in monoblock configuration.
Promitheus Audio produces very promising transformer volume control ( TVC) at much lower price than similar products. In spite of the lower price tag, they can outperform other expensive product with ease. TVC SE received award in Enjoy the Music in 2007. The TVC SE was commented as "This component gets my very highest recommendation" by the reviewer Nel Ferre.
Here is the quote from the review article :
As the break in period
progressed, the unit opened up dynamically, became more expanded on both ends of
the frequency spectrum, and became more transparent and open. When full break in
has been reached, the bass fleshes out at an incredible level, not unlike a
switch has been flipped. There seemed to be a correlation with the break
in period and the position of my jaw: the more the unit burned in, the closer my
jaw was to the floor. If I had walked into a room and had to guess whether the
TVC SE was tubes or solid state, I would have, without hesitation, said tubes-
and expensive at that. I could not believe this level of performance was from
such a low priced unit.
Do not let the low price of admission
or the handmade
appearance fool you. The Promitheus Audio TVC SE is not a curiosity or a
toy. It is a serious audio component, and probably the very best bargain
audio today. It doesn't have the visual or tactile panache of its more
expensive counterparts, but sonically, it runs easily alongside the "big
dogs." The nature of its design results in total and complete
transparency. Because of
this, the quality and compatibility of the rest of the system components
critical. Vinyl lovers will need to pay special attention to both the
their cartridge as well as the gain of their phono stage. However, at
the end of
the day, I find the Prometheus Audio TVC SE to not only be a joy to
to, but also an invaluable reviewing tool. I will be keeping it, and I
suspect it will be hooked up most of the time. This component gets my
