Product Details from the Brand

Elector

The analog purist.

This is the preamplifier for the lover of pure analog technology. With motorized volume control, retro-look-VU-meter, tape monitor and the all superior VOLTAiR technology the Elector brings analog sources to new life.

Milled from solid

is the big 45mm Volume control. Its mass together with the  motorized Alps RK27 “Big Blue” potentiometer enhances the “spoon in the honey” feeling even further.

The red marker LED makes the setting visible even in darkened environments.

Volume RC

The volume can be remote controlled with any infrared remote control, that the Elector simply learns.

To do this, press the IR programming button and then the buttons for louder and quieter.

Source of joy

Up to six (6 !) analog stereo sources can be connected to the Elector.

The Elector offers three pairs of balanced inputs with XLR connectors and three pairs of standard inputs with gold-plated RCA connectors.

Good ol' times

Two mechanical VU meters visualize the input levels for the left and right audio channel.

With the VU switch you can optimize the display for different signal levels.

Tape Monitor

A tape monitor circuitry is quite retro. Who still owns a cassette recorder or a tape machine? Who still has an equalizer?

To put it another way: Who would like to do it and cannot do it because no manufacturer offers a tape monitor circuit anymore?

Well, those who want can again.

Today’s audio levels are much higher than in the past and many recorders will be overloaded by them.

In that case simply press the switch and the level to the recorder is lowered by 10 dB.

To compensate, the level from the recorder is increased by 10 dB. Et voilà.

Preamp & Direct Out

On the output side, power amplifiers or active loudspeakers can be connected to the preamp output sockets using XLRs.

The Direct Out via RCA picks up the output signal before the volume control and thus offers the possibility to connect a headphone amplifier.

AMP CTL

Practical are the AMP CTL sockets to which power amplifiers with 12 V trigger inputs can be connected in order to remotely switch them on and off together with the Director Mk2.
