Leema Acoustics Launches New Digital Pre-amp

Elements preamp

The new Elements Pre-Amplifier retains the familiar half-width-chassis form factor of the Elements product range and is built to the same exacting standards as the full-width Leema models. A matching 160-watt bridgeable power amp is also available.

Leema Acoustics’ advanced on-board digital to analogue converter offers a 24-bit/192kHz S/PDIF coaxial input, three 24-bit/192kHz S/PDIF optical inputs and a 24-bit/192kHz asynchronous USB input, enabling a wide range of source components to take advantage of Leema Acoustics’ digital audio expertise.

Analogue inputs include three unbalanced stereo RCA inputs, a pair of balanced inputs on XLR, plus a 3.5mm input jack on the front panel. The output connections include one pair of balanced XLR outputs and one pair of stereo RCA.

Full LIPS® implementation (Leema’s proprietary communication system) allows for easy system integration with other Leema products and home automation systems, and a remote control is also included. Additionally, a high-quality internal headphone amplifier provides a useful personal listening option. Finishes include black and silver.
