Leema Acoustics’ high-performance space-saving Elements range has expanded to include a new preamp with a high-quality DAC section, offering a wide range of connectivity for today’s digital devices. The new Elements Pre-Amplifier builds on the success of Leema Acoustics’ Elements integrated, adding a high-quality balanced output.
The new Elements Pre-Amplifier retains the familiar half-width-chassis form factor of the Elements product range and is built to the same exacting standards as the full-width Leema models. A matching 160-watt bridgeable power amp is also available.
Leema Acoustics’ advanced on-board digital to analogue converter offers a 24-bit/192kHz S/PDIF coaxial input, three 24-bit/192kHz S/PDIF optical inputs and a 24-bit/192kHz asynchronous USB input, enabling a wide range of source components to take advantage of Leema Acoustics’ digital audio expertise.
Analogue inputs include three unbalanced stereo RCA inputs, a pair of balanced inputs on XLR, plus a 3.5mm input jack on the front panel. The output connections include one pair of balanced XLR outputs and one pair of stereo RCA.
Full LIPS implementation (Leema’s proprietary communication system) allows for easy system integration with other Leema products and home automation systems, and a remote control is also included. Additionally, a high-quality internal headphone amplifier provides a useful personal listening option. The Elements Pre-Amplifier is available now priced at £1,395 with black and silver finishes.
