Doshi Audio – Reel Tape Preamplifier V3.0
Jaguar is an authorized retailer for Doshi Audio components we’ve used Doshi gear in our reference system. The resurgence of reel to reel has steadily gained momentum with audiophiles during the past few decades. Doshi is one of the few companies that manufactures a tape preamplifier for high-end reel players and it’s one of the best out there.
Doshi, like other tube gear Jaguar offers, such as Lamm and EAR, has a rare level of engineering design that makes it stand out as unique and special. The Doshi philosophy can be expressed in one word: balance. A balance of classical and cutting-edge technologies, of eastern and western sensibilities, of professional and residential design strengths.
The Doshi Audio V3.0 Tape Stage is a reflection of the resurgence among analog tape and audiophiles’ need for a quality tape preamplifier. This is a fully functioning unit developed for the high-end audiophile and professional audio engineer. The V3.0 tape stage features a differential input head amplifier with adjustable gain, loading, low-frequency EA, and level controls.
The head amplifier has a servo output stage that can be switched from Class A to Class A/B to cater to different tastes. The EQ section provides for adjustable EQ for NAB/IEC and AES (30ips) playback. It’s also low impedance and completely passive so that dynamics and phase relationships are preserved.
The result of this detailed design is a preamplifier that allows the full breadth and color of a performance to come through like never before. It makes for an unforgettable musical experience.
