Creek OBH-8 Phono Preamplifier

Is your vinyl input getting a little long in the tooth? Or does your new Hi-Fi amplifier not have a phono input? Either way the Creek phono pre-amps will give a boost to your system. Employing state-of-the-art circuitry and high grade components, the OBH - Phono pre-amps perform miracles at a very modest price.

Creek engineers have designed the OBH phono circuitry to use discrete transistors, instead of more usual integrated circuits. This provides the flexibility to use circuit topology more normally found in high-end equipment. A single-ended, ?Class A? gain stage with passive RIAA equalisation and zero negative feedback achieves tube-like performance while maintaining low noise and current consumption. The single-ended OBH gain stage is designed in such a way that it can produce high gain and linearity, without requiring negative feedback to achieve low distortion. Zero negative feedback eliminates the need for phase compensation that would ?slow down? the amplifier at high frequencies. Other detrimental effects like dynamic intermodulation distortion will also be eliminated. This allows the OBH-8 to produce a very ?open and dynamic sound?. Passive EQ offers superior sonic performance to the more conventional Active EQ, but requires the careful choice of close tolerance capacitors and resistors. OBH products use 1% metal film resistors and polypropylene capacitors. Power- on is smooth as the signal level rises slowly. Switch-off is also quiet. The performance of the OBH is only limited by the quality of its power supply and source.

?... I was seriously impressed. The way it combined real smoothness and refinement with genuine musicality and truthfulness was a joy.?
HI-FI World, Nov 1997

?...The Creek OBH-8 is not only fundamentally correct in its performance, it is quite refined. Creek obviously has an EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUIT encased in the diminutive OBH-8 chassis...?
The Audio Adventure, USA Dec 1995?...
