Glasshouse Passive Pre-amplifier No.1 Kit

Glasshouse Passive Pre-amplifier No.1 Kit

Glasshouse Passive Pre-amplifier (without stepped attenuator, available in black only)

Due to the massive variety of stepped attenuators, we have created over the years, featuring a different type of switches, resistors and load resistors we have decided to sell the pre-amp kit without the stepped attenuator. So it is necessary to order a stepped attenuator as well. All the different types we sell including the new Khozmo stepped will fit into the chassis.

The chassis design keeps all signal wire lengths as short as possible, passives are not good at driving long runs of interconnect so the distance from the inputs - selector - volume control device - output socket is vital.

Dimensions (with feet and knobs fitted)- 85mm(h) x 185mm(d) x 150mm(w)

The Glasshouse chassis is made of 2mm thick aluminium black powder-coated, with a black anodised front panel and knobs. The front panel is a 6mm thick aluminium plate, with clear screenprint markings. The chassis is non-ferrous with shielding properties so limited interaction with nearby separates. The finished product weighs in at 1kg so will stand firm during switching.

Our passive has 6 pairs of RCA inputs, 1 pair of RCA record outputs and 2 pairs of output RCA sockets. Plenty of inputs for multi-source systems and you can feed a subwoofer and satellite systems with the extra output.

The parts included in this kit include an Elma switch, gold plated RCA socket and gold plated earth post, additionally, we include Neotech UP-OCC 1/0.3mm copper wire and 3.8% silver solder from Mundorf.
