Tape Head Preamplifier DB1


DB2 Tape Head Preamplifier

The DB2, is designed by David Berning who has been tape enthusiast for over 50 years. He built his first tape head preamp almost 20 years ago, well before any of the new generation of  tape preamplifiers hit the market. The original plan was to use that design but as he got into this project, his level of enthusiasm was roused and the end result is quite different and promises to be truly amazing. Tube based and designed from the ground up with a super analytical approach, Dave believes this will be really great and coming from him, that says a lot!

Here are some of the features…

  • Eight position equalization- NAB 3.75, NAB 7.5, IEC 7.5, IEC15, AES30, Phono, Phono B, Cassette
  • Adjustable gain stages for 3 input sources
  • RCA and real balanced XLR inputs/outputs
  • Headphone amplifier
  • External Tube Power Supply

We expect the first production models in fall 2024.
