Description

When it was marketed in 1995, Lehmann Audio’s Black Cube soon became a true legend for analogue lovers. Over the years, it underwent a few changes and upgrades…The latest version features new input stages derived from the professional industry. It uses the same components as those used on micro preamplifiers and studio consoles. The RIAA curve equalization and correction are entirely passive. It uses MKT capacitors and resistors with high precision, low tolerance and low noise metal layers. The gain selection and load value are obtained by moving DIP switches with gold-plated contacts.

 

After a 10-day break-in period (bear with us...), the musicality that comes out of this small unit delivers is just amazing! No other product within this price range boasts such transparency. The sound stage is amazing, with great musician and instrument placement. The bass is very physical and perfectly in place. The mids have an unparalleled expression with very rich timbre. The sound stage is wide and deep with a very precise placement. We have to say that it really doesn't sound like a phono preamplifier under €500! You can therefore spend more on the cartridge and it will optimise its capabilities. We have paired it with very high-end references, 4 to 5 times more expensive and it passed the test with flying colours!

 

For over 15 years, this Lehmann Audio Black Cube phono preamplifier has been considered as a benchmark by music lovers and the specialist press and it looks like it will remain that way for many years to come, and it's perfectly justified… Well done!

Superbes sonorités!!

Je l'utilise avec un ampli Heed OBELISK SI et une platine Clearaudio CONCEPT MM et le résultat est tout simplement excellent, très bonnes sonorités, je redécouvre mes vinyls...certainement le meilleur pré-ampli Phono dans cette gamme de prix; et on peut même le faire évoluer avec une alimentation externe, je n'ose imaginer le résultat!! Seul bémol : les réglages au dos de l'appareil...la notice est relativement obscure pour moi, heureusement que les techniciens de Ma Platine ont fait le réglage avant envoi en fonction des spécifications de ma cellule.

Comme une F1 ! (suite)

J'ai découvert la marque Lehmann Audio en faisant des recherches sur le site maPlatine.com et les renseignements trouvés m'ont permis de faire le choix de ce pré-ampli. Associé à une platine VPI Traveler, le résultat est tout bonnement fabuleux.
En plus de la qualité de fabrication et de la possibilité de l'associer à un grand nombre de cellules phono-lectrice, vous serez, comme moi "scotcher" par les performances et la beauté du son. Merci à Franck pour ses conseils, son aide dans les réglages et sa sympathie, merci à MaPlatine.com pour ses tarifs.
