LDR3.V25K Passive Preamp Kit

The LDR3.V25K is a complete 3 input, 2 output single-ended passive preamp kit built around our most advanced LDR.V25 Preamp Controller board. When completed, the V25K kit will have a sonic performance the matches many high-end audiophile preamps at a fraction of the cost. This kit is sonically identical to our LDR3.V25 Passive Preamp designed around our latest V25 preamp controller with the only differences being the front panel material, and the grade of RCA jack and hookup wire in the base kit model (can be upgraded at additional cost). The kit includes all the parts needed to assemble a complete audiophile grade passive preamp including enclosure, front/rear panels, dual visual displays, RCA jacks, power supply, manual encoder/knob, remote, wire etc. We provide detailed online information and assembly instructions that even first time DIY builders should have little trouble following. Please refer the detailed product description down below for more information on the kit and what’s needed to successfully build this high performance preamp kit.
