V3.0 Tape Stage
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.

Truely Superior Sound –
The sound through the Doshi Audio V3.0 products was warm and inviting as in, “I must hear more”
Best of Show | Best Sound
A system wins here, one of Paragon Sight and Sound’s rooms featuring Wilson Audio Sasha 2s, Doshi Audio electronics, dCS Rossini DAC and Master Clock, Brinkmann Balance turntable and ’arm, My Sonic Labs Signature Platinum cartridge, and Transparent Reference cables. An oasis of musical calm anytime I stuck my head in the door.
Cardas Audio Excels with Joseph and Doshi
But I would be remiss to not include the new Hybrid Stereo amp ($19,995) from Doshi Audio that were powering everything. A gorgeous piece of amplifier, there are eight EL34 tubes with a mirror-like chrome cover of transformers behind reflecting the glass. Joining in the fun were Doshi’s line stage ($17,995) and tape pre ($17,995).
RMAF 2018: Joseph Audio, Doshi Audio, Cardas and the Rest of Your Life
This was one of Jeff’s best-sounding set-ups I’ve heard—and I’ve heard quite a few—which led me to believe that the Doshi Audio amplification, as well as the Cardas Clear Beyond cabling, were providing uncommon synergy in the room.
Doshi Audio Monoblock V3.0 power amplifier
The remarkably air-filled, three-dimensional, gratifyingly warm sound of Doshi Audio’s Monoblock V3.0 amplifiers demands a place on the short list of amplifier seekers who listen to music for hours on end.

Command Performance AV: Doshi Audio electronics
The system’s sound was very clean and transparent and easily showed the vast differences between either the 15-ips tapes or LPs that were played.
Capital Audiofest: Hitting the Ground Running
The system played it with a tremendous sense of ease, the music simply existing between the speakers without apparent effort. Chris Thile’s voice had well-defined, full-bodied presence in the room, and the limber, graceful phrases played by banjoist Noam Pikelny were breathtaking in their realism.
