The preamp has been great, with a very detailed sound, free of grain, totally quiet and ease of use. Rod Elliot intended the design to match with Zen Nelson Pass power amps. Build construction is very high quality, heavy duty 8kg case, quality parts and finish is well above commercial class standard.

This was built by Decky who used to be on the forum. Using his previous advert details as amended, quote: “implementing a Elliott Sound Products (ESP) design. It is a very simple and effective class-A design described in details here: http://sound.whsites.net/project37.htm


The original circuit is supported by the following: 


- 2x R-core transformers, one for the pre-amp board the other for everything else

- 3 separate regulated power supplies for powering pre-amp board, input and output switching boards and volume control circuit 

- Relay input switching board, output turn-on  delay (programmable) and muting relay board 

- Twisted Pear Audio Joshua Tree relay driven volume control driven by a digital encoder (http://www.twistedpearaudio.com/control/jt.aspx

-  Filtered AC input 

- CNC machined black anodised aluminium box. 

- A lot of love and care invested in building this amp with the overall value of parts being north of $1500”
