Springtime news from Lindau-am-Bodensee - the new Thomas Mayer's Universal Line Stage

Here is a new toy made by Thomas Mayer.

A linestage (pre-amp) based on the same circuit as the 801A line, but it has some switches and adjustable filament supply so that it can be configured for various tubes.

Besides the 801A and it's relatives, it can operate with 71A, 26, UX112 and UX201A, so depending on the mood and music, different tubes can be used. Especially the ancient, sought-after UX201A, which is very interesting! It has a bit of euphonics, but quite subtle.

Look at some pixes with a small selection of the possible tubes plugged in...

... well done, Thomas!
