For the QC Twenty Four pre amp, designed by valve supremo Tim DeParavicini - probably the finest valve amplifier designer in the world today.

Tim scoured the globe for the very finest components, with possibly the best example of this being the new 'old stock' 6111 twin triode.

Product Description

Details

A relatively new design, the QC-24 pre amplifier is both neutral and detailed. Using a military specification 6111 valve, which is so reliable, its hard-wired to the circuit board.

Everything on this pre amplifier has been designed by valve supremo Tim DeParavicini - probably the finest valve amplifier designer in the world today, to maintain optimum signal purity. From the relay switching to the gold-plated terminals, each component has been selected specifically for its audio performance.

The chassis is painted to match all Quad Valve Amplifiers, making it a perfect partner in all systems. For the analogue purist, the combination of a good valve amplifier and a good turntable is the closest possible approach to the original recording.

Whilst the standard QC-24 is line level only, there is an option of a solid-state phono stage which can be added when new, or at a later stage.
