Overview:

The FRENZEL SPX72  Stereo Hi-Fi Preamp   was designed as a stereo preamp platform for all your audio gear. It is the same preamp we use in our SS-84 and SS-4772 stereo amplifiers. Used in front of a solid-state power amp, it will give your the warm vintage sound that only tubes can.   If you love the vintage high fidelity tube sound....you will love this preamp. It comes standard with  many unique features including a separate volume, tone stack, and presence controls for each channel which allows you to fine tune the sound just the way you like it. A four position selector switch provides easy access to your Phono 1 (Magnetic MM or MC RIAA Cartridge Output), Phono2 (Line Level Output), CD player, Entertainment Center or any other Line Level auxiliary device.  All inputs designed to give you precise control of your tone preferences and produce a stereo sound like you have never heard before.

Reviews:

 Hi Jim! :) I finally got to set up the preamp over the weekend and WOW is it excellent!  The look/feel of the jacks, casing, controls, everything.  The sound is first-rate; nice authoritative lows AND sweet highs.  I was making an unboxing/texting video as I unpacked and am going to post it soon...I am so happy I made the plunge for this preamp.  First-rate!

SPX72 PREAMP - Dear Frenzel Team, I just powered up the new SPX72 preamp that you built for me.  I have it connected to an old Voice of Music stereo amp that I pulled out of my parents old console many years ago. The sound is full, rich and incredibly quiet.  I have never heard my records sound this good. I also still have the special stereo guitar preamp you made for me and it is still going strong and sounding great.  Your products are amazing. Best Regards, Pasquale D. (Massachusetts)
