1.What do you define as "preamplifier"?
c. signal control stage

2.How many inputs/sources should a preamplifier accept?
d. 4

3.How many channels should a preamplifier have?
b. 2

4.Should a preampifier have an IR control?
a. yes

5.If yes, what should it control?
c. both

6.What are the specs a preamplifier should fulfill?
a. low distortion
d. high bandwidth
and lowest possible noise

7.What should, according to your opinion, the active devices be?
c. opamps
or d. tubes(depending on the ressources and on the target system)

8.If you were to build a preamplifier, which would be the design you would use?
Standard opamp design, with conventional volume control. A 3 band tone control would be integrated with a defeat switch.

6.What are the specs a preamplifier should fulfill?
a. low distortion
b. drive ability / high current
c. high gain
d. high bandwidth
e.other
multiple answers possible

a: yes
b: absolutely
c: absolutely not
d: a decade above the audio band is nice. More can present RFI problems in some instances.

(describe briefly)

What I've built
2 seperate phono stages (soon 3) -> selector -> TVC -> poweramp
4 line level -> selector -> TVC
Buffered line out (for recording)

bum.

If you use any of this info for your commercial advantage, I expect to get paid.

Hi Costiss,
You have obtained permission from the moderators to post a Poll?:confused: :confused: :confused: :bawling:

1. feels kind of unfair. No option for just amplification. Obviously, a preamp that is attenuating, not amplifying, is not an amplifier per se. (Sorry 'passive preamp' guys, it's true.)

2. As many as needed. You might only need one for gain, or ten for mixing multiple instruments together in a recording.

3. b., 2 channels; but this again depends on needs...

4. b. unnecessary IMO, but convienient if you want to put in the trouble.

5. c. (if something's worth doing, it's worth doing right!)

6. a.

7. d., but I'm biased :) (c). should be acceptable in theory.

8. I covered this in a thread on the tubes forum (My Preamp). - Am awaiting pots so I can get on with the project. :)
