The latest design from Kondo is the M-1000 MK II preamplifier.
Developed from the original M1000, the MK II shares the same vacuum tubes and design, but is newly built using new techniques to extend performance levels by reducing lead lengths, improving mechanical stability and optimizing critical ground layout.
Kondo's flagship preamplifier uses an independent main and power supply chassis to reduce noise and the effect of eddy current. The power supply has been refined further, with double choke filtering, totally independent phono and line supplies and separate left and right filters incorporating an audio grade oil capacitor combination to yield a low and stable impedance.
Bringing KSL technology to the fullest, the M1000 MK II use's Kondo's in-house built silver leaf capacitors, silver leaded resistors and silver wiring from start to finish.
