Tsakiridis Devices Zeus Hybrid Phono Preamplifier :
ON DEMO AT THE SHOP - Tsakiridis Devices produces "affordable high-end" audio equipment for music lovers all over the world since it was established in 1987.
Tsakiridis spent many years creating audio devices for themselves and for enthusiast friends wanting to experience true "high-end" audio reproduction but without investing their life savings in the process! They enjoyed this so much that Tsakiridis decided to turn their passion into a business.
The mission, right from the start, was to make high quality audio equipment at a price/performance ratio that would set it apart from the rest - equipment that really does sound good, is easy to live with and looks rather attractive too. That's why all their products are hand crafted in Greece, using the highest quality components available.
Zeus is a Moving Coil - Moving Magnet hybrid Phono preamplifier. Hybrid because it utilizes ultra low noise op-amp ICs in the input stage and a tube (6DJ8) output stage in cathode follower arrangement. Equipped with sophisticated power supply which provides four independent DC power supplies. Zeus provides five input resistor selections, four input capacitance selections and four gain selections to match perfectly your phono cartridge. Meticulous to the last detail this phono preamplifier is said to be a world class device.
