    ”Good, solid amplifiers at an outstandingly low price.” ‘Hi-Fi+’ (tested with matching PowerAmpster II).

    Flexible pre-amp

    The Tangent PreAmp II is a supremely flexible device that works at the heart of all types of systems. Pair with a power amp for a bespoke hi-fi system or add connectivity and control to your active speakers. With Bluetooth, digital and analogue inputs, it’s ideal for controlling an entire system, taking in everything from smartphone to turntable.

    The ideal match for the Tangent Power Amp II
    Less than half the width of regular hi-fi separates, the PreAmp II is easy to place and makes the basis for a perfect desktop system. For powering passive speakers, pair with Tangent’s matching PowerAmpster II and enjoy powerful sound from a compact combo that takes up less space than a regular amp.

    Bluetooth, wireless connectivity with aptX HD
    For top quality, wireless sound, the PreAmp II uses Qualcomm’s premium aptX HD technology. When used with compatible devices, this optimises the sound quality, delivering high-resolution audio for stunning clarity. If you’ve only ever used conventional Bluetooth in the past, be prepared for a big uplift in detail, dynamic range and spatial depth.

    Connect your turntable
    Featuring a switchable phono input, this compact preamp also makes an ideal partner for your turntable. Designed to work with Moving Magnet cartridge-equipped decks, it’s widely compatible with the majority of turntables. If you aren’t using a turntable then simply switch to ‘Line’ at the back of the unit and plug in your CD player, network streamer or other line-level device.

    Digital and analogue inputs
    With a high-spec Cirrus Logic DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) at its heart, this pre-amp maximises the sound from your digital sources. Use the digital optical input for your TV, games console or other device and enjoy crisp and accurate, digital sound. For analogue sources, there are RCA phono and 3.5mm AUX inputs.

    Studio-quality balanced outputs
    For the best possible connection with your power amp or active speakers, the Tangent PreAmp II has XLR balanced outputs. When used with a compatible partner, these offer an ultra-low distortion connection, with excellent resistance to electrical interference. Because the signal is balanced, it also loses far less signal quality over longer lengths, making it an essential connection for distances over 10 metres.

    Headphone output
    Completing this feature-packed pre-amp, the headphone socket means that, if you only ever use headphones, the PreAmp II could be used solo as a multi-source headphone amp. The 6.35mm socket makes the best quality connection with larger, home-use headphones.

    Bring your system together in style, with the Tangent PreAmp II.

    ”Good, solid amplifiers at an outstandingly low price.” ‘Hi-Fi+’ (tested with matching PreAmp II).

    Fantastic value power amplifier

    The Tangent PowerAmpster II offers terrific value and versatility. The compact casing makes it ideal for where space is tight or for when you simply want a discreet amp. Use it as a part of a premium desktop system, a TV sound upgrade, a home studio/DJ amp or simply in a quality separates home hi-fi.

    The ideal match for PreAmp II
    For the perfect pairing, match this power amp with Tangent’s PreAmp II. Placed side-by-side or power amp on top, the pair take up less space than a regular amp. They’re also sonically matched, meaning that you get optimal sound when used together.

    Punchy sound
    The cool-running, Class D amplifier delivers a punchy 50 watts per channel. Use with 4 ohm speakers and this increases to 100 watts. Sound quality is crisp and punchy, with ample power for room-filling sound, making this compact amp an easy match for most full-size amps.

    Bridge for twice the power
    If you’re looking for ‘party power’, simply add a second PowerAmpster II, switch each to ‘Mono’ mode and the power doubles to 100/200 watts per channel.

    Studio-quality XLR balanced inputs
    For the best possible connection with your pre-amp or mixer, the Tangent PowerAmpster II has XLR balanced inputs. When used with a compatible partner, these offer an ultra-low distortion connection, with excellent resistance to electrical interference. Because the signal is balanced, it also loses far less signal quality over longer lengths, making it an essential connection for distances over 10 metres.

    Boost your system, with the compact Tangent PowerAmpster II.
