$ 495.00
CONTACT US FOR PURCHASING DETAILS

The TU-8500 is a fantastic sounding vacuum tube line stage and phono stage preamplifier using 5965A or 12AU7 tubes for the line stage and a solid state (op-amps) phono stage. There is one set of RCA outputs, three sets of line inputs, and one pair of phono inputs. The price for the TU-8500 is unbeatable and there are few reasons we are really excited about this preamp. One, it is a very simple transparent sounding preamp with a very low noise floor and just a little tube sparkle. And two, it is a perfect match for our absolute favorite phono cartridge, the Denon DL-103R. The DL-103R is a low output Moving Coil cartridge that needs at least 50 dB of gain. The TU-8500 has 63 dB of gain and 100 ohms of input resistance which is perfect for the DL-103R. And at 50K ohms for Moving Magnet cartridges there are many options for MM cartridges.
