Our firm conviction lies in the correlation between clean power and exceptional sound quality. This belief resonates strongly within the flagship Athena preamp. Housed within the same chassis, it shares our fundamental principles and philosophy.

The encapsulated power supply unit, nestled beneath the main control board, embodies our commitment to this belief. Shielded with double layers of MU Metal sheets, it effectively mitigates the adverse effects of EMI/EMF. This meticulous design ensures a pristine power supply.

Multiple stages of Low Drop Out (LDO) voltage regulators, coupled with a substantial bank of capacitors, effortlessly deliver immaculate power to the Class A circuitry. This approach guarantees an uninterrupted supply of clean power, contributing significantly to the preamp's performance.
