Power. Finesse. Extended frequency response. Speed. Delicacy. Control. Spaciousness. Precise imaging. Rhythm. Dynamics. Involvement. Musicality. The list goes on. Selecting only a few of these traits and asking any audio product to achieve them is quite a daunting task. Looking at the list and then listening to the 1108 Phono Preamplifier, it immediately becomes apparent that it can do all of them, with ease.

Decades later the 1108 is doing it all over again. With ease.
