    Lovely pre amp which has a very engaging sound , used with a brimar valve . simple and easy to use , quiet as a mouse in operation . vol clicks as you use it

    selling as using freya and its too good to sit in storage . boxed . prefer collection if you can , then i can demo .230 collected or 250 posted [costs 26 quid by rmsd] . birmingham

    ha , thats funny mike . i have just been comparing it to my modded velleman 3020 !!! I would say that the velleman has a slightly thicker sound , bit more weight , and is good . the saga with the upgraded brimar valve is clearer in sound and i did find the velle a bit wearing recently as the Ta`us can have a fair bit of bass and it was just a tad too heavy with the velle

    using with the firebottle monoblocks the saga has tremendous synergy . i was going to keep it but i feel someone else should try and i need a centre speaker !!!

    it does have a very modest remote but i never use it

    Yes I do like the little velleman so see how you go. Saga Must be one of the cheapest valve pre available and it feels well made .not used it much in passive mode but the option is there

    Maybe a YouTube video of the pre in action will help with the sale

    An intriguing little pre-amp but can you how help me understand how one valve can affect the output for two channels. I am sure it is possible, I just don't see how it would work - I am an electronic Klutz so keep it simple if possible.

    Can't see why this hasn't sold quickly. I did a lot of US research on the Saga & Freya and its an excellent box as evidenced by the HIFI World review of it. I tried to buy Saga but had a lot of trouble over 6weeks or so with the UK/EU supplier who had stock issues. I placed an order for a Khozmo instead; arrived in a week :).

    If I didn't have the Khozmo then I'd snap this one up.

    The valve is essentially two valves in one tube, one side is left one side is right.
