Default Modwright 36.5 pre and psu

ModWright Instruments | LS 36.5 Tube Linestage

surprised to see no threads re this highly rated pre and its psu

how does it compare to other high end pre`s like arc ref 5 or music first baby ?

I haven't heard the others. I have heard the 36.5 and own a swl 9.0se that 2 weeks ago had the upgraded psu and all modwright caps installed. And it is Amazing now paired with my white oak upgraded phase linear amp.. I am a big modwright fan.

I have not heard the MC452 with the MW 36.5 DM, but I have heard the MC402 with the MW pre and I thought the sound from the combination was terrific! The DM is truly a reference level preamp and one of the best I've listened to. Hope that helps...

I am now demoing the LS 36.5 in my system after having the LS100 for a couple of years. Initial impressions are very positive! It is a more neutral preamp and I believe it is a better match for my system with lower output impedance for driving my MC501 amps via balanced outputs along with a dead silent background. I also like that I can run the HT bypass without having the unit turned on and running the tubes. More to follow as things break in...

Interesting. Does the HTBP work through the balanced outputs when the unit is off?

Yes the HTBP does work through the balanced outputs when the unit is off. I believe this works because the signal is fed through output transformers that convert all single ended inputs to balanced. It works great and the fact that it can do this is one of the best features of the unit as you are not burning tube life when watching HT.

Transformers - that makes sense. What a brilliant design.
