Hattor Audio’s Ultimate Passive Pre is built with a choice of resistors, with cost-no-object attention to detail, and sound quality that rivals anything you choose.  With only two resistors in the signal path, you’ll hear every detail without the brightness and distortion of many “revealing” preamps. 

The Ultimate Passive Pre can be configured with four different types of resistors, different finishes, with RCA/XLR connectors, with an optional active buffer, and with a separate vacuum tube gain section.
