Tsakiridis Devices Alexander 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.
Alexander is the top model of the preamplifier series of Tsakiridis - devices Very carefully designed and manufactured with high quality components, aims to meliorate your sound system. Alexander incorporates different (hand made) transformers for each voltage in the power supply and also a choke with the regulating capacitors.
Care has been taken to eliminate magnetic interference with the electronic circuitry. The tubes (2x12AT7) operate in class A to give supreme sonic result. Alexander provides five line inputs and one tape output. Also there are optional one balanced input and one output. The volume control is made with a motorized blue Alps. The input selection utilizes high grade relays. Of course Alexander is remotely controlled. An LCD display in the front provides information about the input selected.
