Audio Research has announced an SE Performance Update to the LS28 Line-Stage Preamplifier.

Audio Research has released performance updates to its LS28 preamplifier as a part of their 50th Anniversary product line improvements.

ARC 160 Series Amps

The improvements in the LS28SE stem from what was learned during the creation of Audio Research’s Reference 160-series amplifiers. Very similar to the wire and parts changes incorporated in the REF6SE and REF PH3SE, the LS28SE also includes upgrading to the same proprietary gold coupling caps used in the REF6SE. Audio Research says “These numerous and costly component upgrades elevate the LS28SE’s performance to an entirely new level. The improved clarity, resolution, transient snap, sense of space, and a relaxed purity are instantly noticeable and will inspire extended listening sessions.”

Price & Availability

The new LS28SE is priced at MSRP $10,000 each (€11,500 each VAT Included) and will replace the LS28

Updates To Existing Models

Customers will be able to update an existing LS28 to an LS28SE for $2,000 US retail (€2,500 each VAT Included). For US/Canada customers, Audio Research will begin taking service orders for updates in July 2020. International distributors will begin taking update kit orders starting in July 2020.
