Bottom Line:   
This review is for a Van Alstine Ultra SL Hybrid preamp with mosfet upgrade . Not just a great value , the Ultra Sl is suprior in almost every aspect. Its most important quality is the pure musical pleasure it gives; it makes you forget audiophile crap and simply enjoy the music in a new and exciting way.

I was looking for is a combination of these two worlds - solid state and tube. And the gamble proofed to be a true winner. The Ultra SL is very natural and very detailed. It has just a prefect bass - lush and focused, not a little bit exaggerated. It is transparent and creates a wide and deep sound stage. It sounds amazingly lifelike; it excells with vocals, acoustic guitars and bow instruments. Is that good ! All I can say is this is a wonderful preamp with an absolutely good affordable price . ( for me the amp is looking very simple style old fashion classic some people hate it some people love it it`s your decision ! ) I like it !
