"Let me state up front that the LDR1 is the most pure, neutral, transparent, noise-free and grain-free component I have ever heard."
A few notables
Light Dependent Resistors
99+% of all other preamps use conventional volume control technology. Not here. Tortuga Audio uses light dependent resistors. Not just different audio. Better audio.
A Better Passive Preamp
Many Tortuga Audio customers decided to sell their existing $10k+ world class high end tube preamps after auditioning our LDR passive preamps. Yes, they're that good.
Affordable High End Performance
For a little over $1k your system can achieve a level of performance that rivals high end systems that cost thousands of dollars more. One of the best values in audio today.
No Gain - No Pain
With rare exception you don't need gain (volume boost) in your preamp. Tortuga Audio's LDR preamps provide excellent attenuation without any harmful manipulation of the audio signal.
Full Range Dynamics
No shortage of dynamics and punch here! Tortuga Audio LDR passive preamps deliver truly impressive bass plus clear, clean & balanced mid/highs with no grain or harshness. Adjustable impedance renders matching a moot issue.
Please Remain Seated
Yes, Tortuga Audio preamps have a volume control knob. No, you don't need to get up and use it if you don't want to. All Tortuga Audio preamps are controlled via a nice simple remote. So sit back & enjoy!
