musica bella leanna preamp


  Looking to buy a used tube preamp and this one has peaked my interest.  I would be pairing it with a digital amp.  I can't find much info.  online on this preamp and was wondering if anyone had heard this preamp before,  thanks

I have one for sale and advertised it over at Ebay.

For what its worth. In my personal opinion after using it for 2 years, it is an excellent sounding pre-amp. Not too warm or sterile it has a nice live-warmish sound to it. Bass is outstanding for a Tube-pre and ofcourse so are the Mids. The VTPS Power Supply ad that magical feeling you get with tubes.
Oh, the one I have was fully maxed out by Bill baker. This unit has Bybee installed on both Input and output stages, Vcap Upgrades and Cryogenic treated Internal wiring. The VTPS Power Supply is in a separate chassis I paid a lot more for this as I wanted to keep the power supply away from the critical areas.
I have a 12AU7 version called the Bellamax - a cross between the Musica Bella series and the Purity Audio series - a precursor to the Leanna. I’m very happy with mine. Great dynamics and tone. Definitely, not warm and diffuse like an old style tube preamp. It’s very responsive to tube-rolling, IC’s, PC’s and fuses. Mine is feeding a Class A SS amp. I have no idea how it would match up with a digital amp.

Bill Baker is a veteran circuit designer and very nice guy. He also modded the cross-overs on my speakers. Huge improvement. The unit that dragon_vibe is selling looks very impressive.
