It is that rare thing, a bargain with a huge personality. The price is incredible - for the same money you cannot even buy a Chinese preamp with phono Stereo Review

Cofft Acoustics Micro 25 version "R"  is Croft's flagship pre amplifier and probably the best performing pre amplifier Glenn Croft has ever designed.
It seems that Glenn's venture into the hybrid realm (mixed solid state and valve design) in recent years have produced a circuit which sounds so smooth.
This model includes a Mosfet regulated power supply which arguably makes a big difference to the sound - valve purists may not like this fact but it really does perform.
 
This pre-amp is a sort of hybrid design with a SSD doing the job of the usual cathode follower valve. Glenn says that "hybrid" is not really a correct description as the Mosfet is not really in the direct signal path. The power supply consists of two large toroids and features a regulated HT. It also includes an MM phono stage and 3 line level inputs.
  • Regulated HT
  • Dual Mono Volume control with mute switch
  • Hybrid Design
  • Dimensions H70mm W410mm D225mm
  • 5x ECC83 1x 85A2
  • 1x line and 2x phono (MM only)

The Micro 25 version "R" is the best performing pre-amp at this price; you'd have to spend at least double to match it.

England's Croft Acoustics has been making some of the very finest tube electronics for over twenty years. Croft pre-amps and amplifiers are minimalist, no compromise designs, carefully handmade, with absolutely the highest regard for maintaining signal purity. 

Featuring point to point wiring and selected matched components  
In addition to producing exceptional sound quality, Croft's minimalist designs cost far less to produce than many of today's exotic brands. Therefore Croft amplifiers deliver a sonic performance far in excess of what one would expect given their modest prices. This minimalist, quality first philosophy is utilized in all Croft products.
