Artemis Labs LA-1 Preamplifier

Artemis Labs LA-1



Artemis Labs LA-1


The Artemis Labs LA-1 Line Pre Amp combines the clean, accurate sound of a purist single-triode line amplifier with the convenience and reliability of a solid, well-built product.


Special care is taken with all parts in the audio path, from the Goldpoint• stepped attenuator to the custom wound output chokes. The sonic clarity and detail are outstanding.

Artemis Labs LA-1 Key Features


5 inputs, 2 outputs

Five stereo inputs available at the flick of a switch. Two pairs of RCA output jacks allow connections to sub-woofer or signal processor, as well as power amplifier.


12dB maximum gain

Provides adequate gain for most sources without the hum and noise caused by excessive gain.


Goldpoint• stepped attenuator volume control

Series-type stepped attenuator using precision metal-film resistors by Dale and switch mechanism by Elma (Swiss).


Dual conductive-plastic balance controls

A separate potentiometer is used to balance each channel. This allows maximum gain in the normal balanced condition and permits the use of high-quality conductive plastic pots with no sonic degradation yet infinite resolution


Mono/Stereo switch with LED indicator

The left and right channels can be merged, with a yellow LED indicating the mono condition.


One 5687 tube per channel in Cool-Swap• Configuration

An idle spare in each tube, plus tubes run cooler


Choke loads for each triode

Allows tubes to run in their most linear mode and permits lower plate supply voltage


Low-Gain MOSFET high voltage regulation

One regulator per channel minimizes cross-talk and gives a firm, stable sound without sounding •solid-state•


All Artemis PreAmps Designed and built in the United States using the best parts from around the world
