JAY-SHO XS PRE AMP
The JAY-SHO XS Pre Amplifier is designed to offer features rarely available in a passive pre amplifier.
A pure and direct signal path is maintained at all times between source and power amplifier.
At the heart of JAY-SHO XS are audio autoformers made for Acousticimagery to give a remarkable
volume control device with very clean short signal paths featuring:-
100% passive signal path
1db step size from -52db up to +7db
Full remote control of volume
Mute balance and source
The autoformers have the benefit of the way they treat impedances, the load the source sees and the
drive to the power amplifiers.
As the volume level is turned down to typical listening levels the output does a better job of driving
cables and amplifiers.
The JAY-SHO XS Pre Amplifier uses only the highest quality components throughout and the fully
balanced configuration ensures at this is one of the quietest pre amplifiers available at any price.
There are 6 XLR inputs and two XLR outputs with the addition of one tape monitor socket to enable
recording to tape or cdr of the selected input.
The JAY-SHO XS Pre Amplifier display is powered by 9V DC through an input power socket on the
