The new preamplifier hardly differs from its predecessor in appearance and is also built completely balanced and discrete. It has however been elaborately improved upon on the technical side. For example, the power supply for the digital branch is now even stronger and provided with better shielding. The large toroidal transformer has also been further increased in size to 115 VA. The new and improved circuit board layout renders the capacitors which connected the input and output stages of the P 3000 HV to the volume control obsolete. With these further developments based on the proven predecessor model, the sound is supposed to have been significantly improved once again. The 28-kilo heavy preamplifier is available as standard in silver and titanium. On request, all HV units can also be ordered in other colors. The P 3100 HV is to be available in specialist shops later this month – at a price of around 13,500 Euros.
