Backert Labs’ Rhythm 1.1 is a tubed linestage preamplifier that provides a new level of audio enjoyment by utilizing radically new technology. This innovative preamp provides exceptional sound quality, in several key areas, such as rhythm (with accurate rhythm, music becomes more compelling), dynamics (it presents the most accurate dynamics of any stereo component you can buy), speed and attack (it won’t speed up your music, but it will provide lightning-fast response), tone (it digs deeper, and shows you the inner tone of an instrument or voice), soundstage (the design of Bob Backert’s GreenForce power supply lifts the accurate presentation of a massive soundstage to a new level) and clarity (one of the first things you’ll notiece is its striking clarity, its open, “right there”, true-to-life presentation of your favorite music).
Audio “Firsts” In the Rhythm 1.1 Preamplifier:
– the first power supply to use all V-Caps capacitors. GreenForce, patented by Bob Backert
– the first active preamplifier with no aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Better sound, better for the environment
– the first preamplifier that adjusts tube bias automatically and continuously
Also, Backert Labs puts the tubes under a door that pops up with the touch of your finger. Just press on the little hand, and the door flips open. Two 12au7′s are beneath it, and you don’t need a screwdriver or anything else to get at them.
The Rhythm 1.1 is designed and built by hand in the USA.
