The Audio Refinement Pre-5 preamplifier

The Pre-5 is a preamplifier that provides high quality 2-channel inputs and outputs. A special feature of this preamplifier is that it also provides one set of 6-channel inputs and outputs, to cater to the need to connect the processed 5.1 surround sound through this preamplifier.

Offering a unique, minimalist path to home theater performance in an ultra hi-fidelity package, the Pre-5 has no internal digital processing. Instead, this all-analog pre-amp features the highest quality semi-conductor parts laid out in a fully symmetrical design, with 5.1 analog RCA inputs for straight forward DVD or DVD-A SACD connection yielding the purest possible audio performance.

The Audio Refinement remote control, concieved with the Complete series, also suits this electronic which can work with every product of the Complete (such as the CD player or the tuner) and Multi series.

The Audio Refinement Pre-5 preamplifier has several characteristics :

  • Most of the components used in the Complete are hand soldered directly onto the circuit board to ensure the highest quality
  • Only non-magnetic materials are used throughout the whole design.
    The front faceplate is a 8 mm thick brushed aluminium machined to perfection using a CNC machine.
    The top cover is a 2 mm thick non-magnetic aluminium available in black.
  • All capacitors used in the Complete are of extremely high quality. The output terminals, AC socket, internal wires, external AC cord, and fuses used are original parts from YBA.
  • The feet used are non-magnetic aluminium with a special rubber material for damping (a ceramic material is available as an option).
  • The transformer used in the amplifier is specially designed and a rubber damping material isolates its vibrations from other circuitry.
Great care is taken in the design and manufacturing process to ensure tremendous reliability for the Complete. The use of extremely high quality components with special regard to heat dissipation guarantees longevity.
