The SA1 Passive Preamp

Goldpoint SA1

The Goldpoint SA1 is a "best sounding" no frills 100% passive preamplifier.
 The SA1's clarity, transparency and precision make it a perfect match for a 
"purist" system - such as single CD or DVD player and a power amplifier.

No distortion is added to your signal path while performing level control. 
(Active preamps add in at least some distortion.)
Goldpoint precision stepped attenuator for low noise and excellent channel-to-channel signal level matching.

Note about our knob dial pattern: The Goldpoint SA box front panel dial pattern shows the numbers 0 to 23, with a dot in between each adjacent number. When a 24-position stepped attenuator is installed, each knob position points to a number. When a 47-position stepped attenuator is installed, each knob position points to a number then a dot, alternately.

Heavy duty gold plated RCA 
jacks are recessed into our 
1/4" thick rear panels.

Silver knobs (instead of Black) are a free option on all
of our Passive Preamps/Precision Level Controls.
Just ask for Silver Knobs when ordering.
