Virgo III / Line Stage / Overview
Virgo III Line Stage

Innovative new passive digital volume control. Improved, simplified signal path for even lower noise. Redesigned faceplate for more reliable remote control response. Separate power supply with discrete left, right and control feeds. Line Stage Gain Module circuit for ideal positive/negative signal balance.

Virgo III is a subtle but significant evolution of our Virgo II line stage preamplifier. The new version introduces a unique, passive implementation of a digital volume control created by our "dream team" of world-renowned audio engineers. This new control works perfectly right from power-up and doesn't need the warm-up time of the light-dependent resistors used in Virgo II's volume control. It's as electronically pure as it can be, essentially just two resistors per channel in the signal chain. It incorporates no gain and no extra amplification stages. The listener enjoys the precision of pure digital control - with the musicality of a traditional analog control.

Remote Control

Fortunately, the new control allowed us to simplify Virgo III's signal path. This improvement further reduces noise and improves on the sound quality of the original design, which one reviewer called "...competitive with and in many regards superior to anything I've yet heard at any price, tube or solid-state."

We have also reworked the front panel slightly to improve operation of the remote control. A new sensor window lets the unit respond faster to the remote's commands, and also allows the remote to be used at wider angles.
