Audio Research SP-4


The SP-4 preamplifier was designed around the Analog Module which acts as a 'super tube' because it takes the best qualities we see in the vacuum tube much closer to the theoretical ideal.

The SP-4 surpasses our vacuum tube preamplifier in the most important areas. It has increased musical depth and definition with a smoothness that will satisfy any vacuum tube enthusiast.
