Detailed description taken from distributor website:
The Doge 8 carries the engineering prowess of the entire Doge line. The 8 tube dual mono design (4 X 12AX7, 4X 12AT7) Doge 8 with 3 power transformers leads the way to detailed sound that is not over ripe. Three outputs are available: Two RCA- and one XLR balanced. The user selects inputs via remote or front panel buttons. These inputs select via a microprocessor controlled gas contact relays with gold plated contacts. The Doge 8 uses a finely matched ALPS potentiometer with a channel balance of less than 0.3 dB. The use of 1% metal film resistors together with the finest WIMA MKP 10 polypropylene capacitors with a minimal 1% tolerance in the phono- stage are standard for the Doge 8.
Excellent Phono Preamp
The phono section of the Doge 8 is one of its key strengths. Considered by many critics to be the finest, most tonally neutral tube phono section currently available, the design goal of the Doge 8 was to precisely track the prescribed RIAA equalization curves with absolute accuracy. The Doge 8 reaches this with ≤ 0.2 dB. Its supremely quiet high gain circuitry has been designed with tubes for the MM section and JFET-’s for the MC- section, to deliver extra-ordinary performance for the broadest possible range of moving coil andmoving magnetic cartridges.
The Doge 8 represents a big step ahead, with its frequency range from 5Hz- 200 kHz and lowest distortion down to 0,0009 %, using double layer polypropylene capacitors, selected together with a tolerance of less ≤ 0.5 % as coupling capacitors.
8 Tube preamp with phono section. Phono section allows custom tailoring of impedance and resistance via switches on back panel. 5 gold plated input jacks, 2 gold plated output jacks and a balanced outputs.
