Just recently we told you that the French company Totaldac introduced the Amp-1-sublime power amplifier . Especially for working in one mono-brand system, the company released a pre-amplifier Totaldac 1- river-sublime , which, according to the manufacturer, is an ideal partner for the new “power”.

The Totaldac D1-Driver-sublime preamplifier does not have a volume control – this function is performed by the DAC volume control, however, in case the overall system gain is too high (DAC + amplifier + speakers + room), the analogue attenuation -15 can be activated in the preamplifier .5 dB via rear panel switch. This attenuator uses 12 Bulk Metal® resistors with 0.01% resistance accuracy from Vishay.

The Totaldac D1-Driver-sublime preamplifier is offered in two versions: a stereo version in one housing with unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs, and a monoblock version with an external power supply, unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs and balanced XLR inputs and outputs.
