The Doshi Audio V3.0 Tape Stage is a reflection of the resurgence among analog tape and audiophiles’ need for a quality tape preamplifier. This is a fully functioning unit developed for the high-end audiophile and professional audio engineer. The V3.0 tape stage features a differential input head amplifier with adjustable gain, loading, low frequency EA, and level controls.

The head amplifier has a servo output stage that can be switched from Class A to Class A/B to cater to different tastes. The EQ section provides for adjustable EQ for NAB/IEC and AES (30ips) playback. It’s also low impedance and completely passive so that dynamics and phase relationships are preserved.

A transformer balanced output is available as an upgrade.

The result of this detailed design is a preamplifier that allows the full breadth and color of a performance to come through like never before. It makes for an unforgettable musical experience.
