“I am listening to Bill Evans at the moment and the sound is really divine. The combination of the cartridge and preamp really brings out the best of this vinyl recording.”

“Hi Pal, The icOn 4PRO arrived safely. Wow, what fantastic packaging, inside and out! Beautiful piece of equipment! It has been installed and connected. Everything is ship-shape. Just now listening to it in the system with a Soundsmith Strain Gauge preamp and cart via unbalanced RCA. And thank you for the chocolates!I must say that so far I am very impressed with the entire experience. Communication payment has been very easy and painless. It has been a real pleasure. The early shipment was a nice surprise and shipping was completely straight forward with no gotchas. And the packaging is beyond professional. Exceptionally well thought out. The final product is a pleasure to the eye and senses, not to mention to the ears. Well done.”

Thanks, best regards and Merry Christmas, Ron


After a month of owning the icOn 4 Pro, I must say that I like it very much. It has no (or perhaps very very little) signature of its own. The significant more volume steps and the ease of use brings also happiness. I did have many preamps over the last 50 years but this jewel beats them all…

I am an extremely satisfied customer. I was looking for a passive preamp to feed my Jadis DA5 with a signal coming from some  DAC’s (fed by a Prime Minias Nucleus core for running Roon). I needed three inputs (for the different voltages of the DAC’s (1, 2, 3 V)) and just one output. The output was adjusted to the particular max. output level of my Jadis (400 mV) to avoid clipping. Whenever the preamp is turned on, it starts at level 4 (almost silent).

All this tailor made by Pal, who was extremely helpful (we chatted a few days to get the optimalsetting).The price tag is hefty, yes, but for a tailor-made machine of this extremely good quality, it ismore than reasonable (although not a bargain). I refrain from any comparisons to describe the sound quality: I am totally satisfied and could not wish for anything better.5 stars!

This is a very impressive amp, beautiful quality build and simple, functional, elegant design.  A famous designer and leader in the Victorian arts and crafts movement had a couple of sayings, “Less is more” and “Do not have anything in your house unless you know it to be useful or believe it to be beautiful “.  I believe your amp fits all those categories perfectly! You have produced an amplifier that sounds wonderfully detailed without a hint of harshness that clearly surpasses earlier amp I have and the xxxxxxx (another magnetic passive preamp) I have been comparing it to. Many thanks for the marvellous amp,

Best Wishes, Mark.


Hi Pal

I listened a lot at the weekend, and the sounds heavenly.
So open and clear, without coloring, it looks like you are listening to real instruments.
Really wonderful, amazing.
