NOW IN PRODUCTION! Allnic’s long-awaited “baby” line-stage preamplifier

Allnic’s KS Park does it again. Replacing the highly successful L-1500 preamplifier that anchored Allnic’s line-up for over 14 years, the robust all-aluminum chassis (black or silver), transformer-coupled L-6500 line-stage pre-amp sports NOS tubes, remote control, and an appearance that matches the awesome H-5500 phono-stage. The gain tubes in the L-6500 differ from those in the L-1500. The L-6500 uses NOS 5842 tubes, supplied stock with the unit. They are equivalents to the Western Electric 417A, and there are other great brands and vintages of the 5842 type to roll. The NOS tubes supplied present a warm sound and with GEC brand tubes are strikingly engaging emotionally with their inherent lush sound while retaining clarity and detail. Price to performance, this amp commands my attention!

The L-6500 features pure class A operation, an ultra-high speed automatic voltage regulation circuit utilizing vacuum tubes, and individual current meters for each channel. In addition, Allnic Audio uses its own, in-house designed, precision oil-clutched motorized attenuator, not a digital IC volume control or low‐ cost carbon film volume control with a motor; the L‐6500 has no (± 0db) channel imbalance at any volume level. Finally, with five (5) pairs of inputs (three balanced XLR and two unbalanced RCA) and three (3) pairs of outputs (one balanced XLR and two unbalanced RCA), the L-6500 provides great flexibility for multiple connections.

For a limited time only, David Beetles of Hammertone Audio. Don Corby of Corby's Audio and John Ketcham of Kevalin Audio are supplying this unit at the fantastic price of $6900 including delivery to anywhere in North America. Considering the L-6500’s feature set and pedigree, if you’re in the market for an absolutely outstanding preamp around this price, and even well above, you may want to act soon. PLEASE NOTE: These units are available worldwide! The dealers out of U.K., Denmark, and Germany have been informative and pleasant on all fronts. Wonderful people all around!

This review is recently released in May, 2022 issue of HiFi+. A wonderful publication out of the UK.

In the conclusion, they recognize that the qualities noted in more expensive models are equally represented here in the L-6500.

Read it here or in their print publication!
