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.  The output circuit includes a separate powered sub-woofer output.

  • Input and Output Jacks isolated from chassis for low noise, eddy currents, and hum.

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) 

 

SPX72 PREAMP - Hello, Thanks very much for this hand made tube preamp. It was worth the wait. It works perfectly and exactly as I would expect from Frenzel. I own a SS-4472 that Frenzel made for me years ago. It still works like the day I bought it. All the best,

 Hi, Just wanted to say thanks. Omg this preamp is nothing short of amazing. I was using a $1600 PS audio stellar gain cell and yours "IMO" blows it away. I never thought Id ever be able to buy a tube preamp that's made in America for $600. I'm going to recommend your products to all of my audio enthusiast friends. Best money Ive ever spent. Wes T.

Hi, - I have been enjoying the SPX72 preamp for a while now....It sounds fantastic...I’m loving how it looks in my custom rack. Thanks so much for the excellent customer service. Tony T. (California)
