Full Product Overview & Specification
Seer - 'one who sees the future'
First in the audio chain after the source the Seer 'sees'
all that will be heard and conveys its musical truth.
The Seer offers the enthusiast a high standard compact and
versatile all tube preamplifier.
It is available as two models;
- with six inputs including a phono moving magnet input
- with five inputs, as a line-level only model
The line stage is designed using similar circuitry techniques
employed by its two box counterpart the Prophet preamplifier,
but utilizing a different tube and a less exotic power supply.
Each line channel utilizes a low noise double triode operated
in single ended class A. With a minimum of coupling components
between stages the circuit achieves a very wide bandwidth of
5 Hz to 115kHz, providing admirable results with high quality
The non-buffered output is suitable for driving medium lengths
of inter-connects giving meritorious results in systems where
the Seer would be the sole tube amplifier component, conveying
a natural musical tonal balance to ones system, especially
popular used with solid-state power amplifiers.
All inputs are hard wired for maximum signal transfer and
high quality gold plated RCA phono sockets are mounted on
a non-magnetic back-panel for minimum interference.
The Phono stage is suitable for cartridges with a minimum
output in the order of 0.8mV, suiting all moving magnet
types and medium to high output moving coil types.
Each channel of the phono stage incorporates a low noise
double triode, operated in single ended class A and the
extremely accurate active RIAA correction network awards
the listener with a credible vinyl replay performance.
All circuitry is mounted on a double sided 3/32 fibreglass pcb
with 3oz copper tracks and combining elegant circuit layout
and high quality components such as gold plated tube bases
1% tolerance metal film resistors and polypropylene capacitors,
the Seer presents music with excellent clarity unusual for
tube preamplifiers in this price range.
The power supply incorporates a high quality potted toroidal
power transformer together with a solid state regulated heater
supply and hum filtered high tension supply. This low noise
supply allows the Seer to work at maximum gain with an
absence of background noise especially useful when listening
to the phono input.
All the electronics are housed in a fully screened chassis and
to compliment its elegant lines the front panel is machined
from solid 6mm aluminium billet with a brushed anodised finish.
The Seer has a unique quality which allows the listener an
opportunity to experience a superior musical 'Live' sensation
with Line or Phono sources in any hi-fi system.
