New Boenicke Audio V3 Preamp

Boenicke Audio writes: "This is what we can do in terms of preamplification. Legendary Cryo-treated Silver Wire Transformer Volume Control by Audio Consulting, driven by remote – controllable motor, running on its own small external 12-V power supply.   

Two 30 Ah Lithium Ferrophosphate battery packs ensure approx. 1000 hours (!) of operation autonomy upon a single charge. Forget about mains filtering and power cords. Mains power supply quality is of such paramount importance, as it’s the canvas the unit paints the music on."

Once battery supply voltage drops below 12.0 V, both packs should be recharged, which takes about one night per pack and polarity – unit runs on +/- 12 V nominal. There are two battery management systems taking care of the total 8 LiFePo cells and also making sure no deep discharge can occur (unit would automatically switch off if voltage drops too low).
