WLM Linea Preamp
The heart and soul of high quality audio amplification begins with the pre-amplifier. The Linea tube pre-amplifier is a perfect example of WLM-ACOUSTICS high quality craftsmanship and is built to get the best out of any system source. This is truly the design where music seems to bloom. Put it together with one of our amplifiers and you
will hear what we mean. The Linea was created for music connoisseurs seeking a sublime listening experience,
reliability and value. Carefully designed and manufactured to very high specifications making it a true audiophile product, to greatly enhance any high quality two-channel music system by offering the listener an emotionally involving, natural, and effortless musical presentation. The Linea deserves to be used with high quality ancillary components and works particularly well with other WLM-ACOUSTICS range products.
Structure and Functioning
The Linea features a remote-controlled 5-input tube line stage and utilizes two 6N1P-EV and one ECL82 vacuum tubes. The case is precision made from massive high-density plywood in the best tradition of Austrian craftsmanship and finished with a stained black timber finish (Makassar veneer no longer available). The engraved front plate and holepattern top plate are made of brushed stainless steel. Thus the overall appearance is very harmonic, both of traditional and modern design. Together with the in-house advanced expertise in transformer manufacture and circuit
design of the WLM-ACOUSTIC team, this cooperation reflects in a true “made in Europe” origin and is a destination piece of exclusive tube audio. Every Linea tube pre-amplifier is proudly hand-made and carefully tested, inspected and
packaged before making its journey to our highly-valued and satisfied customers. Linea with gold-plated front- and top plates are available upon request (surcharge).
The first time you listen to Linea, you will probably be mesmerized. It will seem like nothing but breath, vibrating air, the room, and you. Even the rests between notes will seem to sound better. The Linea tube pre-amplifier combines the finest sonic attributes of classic tube amplification to enhance the listener’s emotional involvement with the music with
excellent non-excessive tone color, potent dynamic scaling, and deep staging.
