Swiss brand Boenicke has launched its new Boenicke V3 preamplifier.

The new Boenicke V3 Preamplifier features a Cryo-treated silver wire transformer volume control by Audio Consulting, driven by a remote–controllable motor, which runs on its own small external 12-V power supply.

Rather than running on mains power, the Boenicke V3 Preamplifier has two 30 Ah lithium ferro phosphate battery packs, which ensure approximately 1000 hours of operation autonomy from a single charge.

Once battery supply voltage drops below 12.0 V, both packs should be recharged, which takes about one night per pack. There are two battery management systems taking care of the eight LiFePo cells and they also make sure no deep discharge can occur (the unit would automatically switch off if the voltage drops too low).

HiFi Pig Says: Sven Boenicke says that the battery power supply of the Boenicke V3 Preamplifier is chosen because “power supply quality is of such paramount importance, as it’s the canvas the unit paints the music on”.
