ModWright Instruments SWL 9.0SE preamplifier

The 9.0SE is so much fun to listen to that we “put it up against the mega-expensive stuff and still came away impressed.” The tubed ModWright sounds warm and big yet still offers tons of detail and can easily reveal different levels of detail in most recordings. “Great sound, great build quality,” we surmised, noting that this preamp was a huge step up from the affordable stuff.
