This is our fifth year at the Munich HIGH END, so to mark this occasion, we're producing a limited run of five Special Edition 5th Anniversary pre-amplifiers, the first of which we will be unveiling at the show.

Fifth anniversaries are traditionally celebrated with gifts made from wood and ours is no exception. All five anniversary pre-amplifiers will feature key chassis parts made from burr wood which will be specially treated before milling and machining to ensure a flawless finish and no resonance issues.

We found some beautiful burr wych elm for the first of these anniversary pre-amplifiers and we're excited to see how it will look once it's treated and machined.

Thank you Guillaume, was great to see you too! We're back in England late Monday, so I'll give you a call next week and we can arrange to meet up. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by the stand, I hope you had a wonderful time at the show and a safe trip home,

We've had the completed fifth anniversary pre-amplifier on display on our stand in Munich and the reception has been very positive. Art Dudley was amongst the first visitors to our stand and featured it in his show report here, as did Stereonet in their beautiful gallery here. The finished pre-amplifier also features Furutech XLR connectors, Shinkoh Tantalum resistors in the ground network and a modified BENT Audio remote handset with wych elm trim.

Harry,
Where are the "Shinkoh Tantalum resistors in the ground network" located? I haven’t seen them in any picture of the Bespoke Audio preamplifiers.
What is the function of these resistors? Are they in the signal path since you have chosen Shinkoh boutique resistors?
