Berliner Dual Pentode Preamplifier


Staying true to our “No Cloning” concept, we take the venerable V76 to the next level! Keeping only what is needed to achieve that “to kill for” tone and taking inconsistency, unreliability and one-trick-pony-ness out of the equation!

The amount of detail Berliner reveals is staggering! And all with that sweet tubey character! It will meet or exceed the expectations of an engineer hunting for the best V76 unit on the used market and add new features that classical tube preamps could't even dream about.
