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...

ModWright LS100 as I mentioned above. It's a positive move in terms of overall system matching and sound quality in my system, although I will miss the excellent phono preamp module in the LS100, and to a lesser extent, the built in headphone amp.

The LS100 phono is that good huh? What will you do for a phono stage now?
