Description: The C220 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier possesses all the flexibility modern systems require while maintaining the highest-quality two-channel performance. All signal switching is done electromagnetically with switch contacts sealed inside glass cylinders filled with an inert gas. Locating these switches adjacent to the input/output jacks virtually eliminates crosstalk, and their sealed construction guarantees trouble-free operation.
