The DMC-30SL Reference Preamplifier
On the occasion of our twenty-fifth anniversary Spectral is pleased to introduce a special reference preamplifier design for serious music enthusiasts. The new DMC-30SL Reference Preamplifier commemorates twenty-five years of state-of-the-art preamp design at Spectral beginning with the company’s first product, the revolutionary MS-ONE Systems Evaluation Preamplifier introduced in the mid 1970s. The Spectral MS-ONE redefined high-end preamplifier performance, introducing instrumentation design techniques and ultra precision components to the audio industry. Now the new DMC-30SL again redefines the art of preamplifier design with a comprehensive array of engineering breakthroughs which set new sonic standards and raise the bar on signal accuracy in the most demanding music applications.
The foundation for the new product is our own critically reviewed Spectral DMC-30 preamplifier representing a breakthrough in high-end preamp design and technology. The DMC-30 delivers remarkable musical realism and has established the benchmark of value and sonic accuracy among high performance preamps. It is in fact the outstanding performance of the basic DMC-30 which led to an exploration of how far its design could be taken, in a special version called the DMC-30SL.
The Spectral DMC-30SL reference preamplifier builds on the outstanding performance of the DMC-30 with newly developed amplifier technology, power supplies and critical parts evaluation without respect to cost. After months of blind listening tests utilizing ultimate quality recorded sources, and an exhaustive two year circuit development program, our “special version” was finalized. The result of this endeavor is simply the finest preamplifier ever offered by Spectral Audio in our long twenty-five year history.
