Lamm LL1 Signature Preamplifier
One of the great things about coming to CES is getting the opportunity to hear gear that’s rarely near. I was really happy as I strolled down the 35th floor to walk into the Lamm room. I don’t have a Lamm dealer in Minneapolis so I haven’t ever had the chance to hear this lauded and expensive tube gear.
The Lamm room featured a cost-no-object system that included the world premiere of the Lamm LL1 Signature Preamplifier. This $42,690 statement is a four-chassis dual-monophonic preamplification system featuring separate power supplies for each channel as well as separate control modules for each channel. It’s a whole lotta preamp.
The LL1 works in single-ended class-A operation with no overall feedback and uses specially selected, high-transconductance, dual-triode 6N30P-DR tubes in its signal path, along with TKD stepped potentiometers for volume control. It has three single-ended inputs and will output via XLR or RCA jacks.
