    Probably the best preamp, especially in combination with Lane Poor. This Aguilar preamp gives the pickup a life if it doesn’t have, if it has, it makes it happy being alive and boosts its talent to a level of +18dB.

    Frequencies are at the right spot with pretty wide Q thus so transparent, no noticeable distortion, from real flat, to fat & bold bass sound with crispy, detailed and reach mid and high-end. This is very accurate along with LP.

    Battery life is extreme, probably 8-15 months with regular playing, and maybe 2+ years on occasional usage.
