Shindo's preamplifier is the heart of any music reproduction system. Its most important qualities being the ability to convey the emotion, timing, flow, nuance and coherence of the recorded musical event.\r\n\r\nHere's an interesting point: the Aurieges L (linestage only) is in some opinions the best of Ken Shindo's preamps, even though it is entry level.
