Nina is quite unique in the world of tube audio gear in that it is a tape head preamp using the venerable 6922/E88CC/6DJ8 triode designed for use with most reel to reel tape decks, consumer or pro.

The preamp circuit is a design by renowned tube circuit guru Ray Waters. His brilliant circuit has been mated with our in-house designed regulated solid state power supply.

The result is a fantastic sounding tape head preamp that is able to work with a wide range of playback head impedances. Another unique feature of Ray's design is that Nina can be switched between NAB (7.5 & 15 IPS), IEC 7.5IPS and IEC 15IPS.
If you require that Nina's input loading is matched to your particular decks playback head, please contact us with your details.

Nina can also be supplied without the XLR balanced output, for those who do not require a balanced audio signal. See below for pricing.

Nina is a tape head preamp, so it must be connected directly to the decks playback head, NOT the tape deck audio output!
