Audio Research – LS9 Preamplifier in Silver
The LS9 is an all-new, all-solid-state line level preamplifier which replaces the LS3/3B series. Using a low-voltage, pure Class A gain circuit with direct-coupled output (no coupling caps are used in the signal path), the LS9 yields 12dB of overall gain (factory adjustable to 18dB gain if necessary). Output capability is a substantial 24V RMS from the balanced main outputs. The LS9 also features complete IR remote control of all front panel functions, including a 70-step electronic relay volume attenuator and input selection. The LS9 offers two pairs of dedicated balanced inputs, three pairs of dedicated single-ended inputs; and a full tape monitor loop (single-ended in and out) is also provided. 11 lbs. 19″ (48 cm) W x 3½” (8.9 cm) H x 11″ (28 cm) D. Handles extend 1.5 ” (3.8 cm) forward of the front panel.
