Audio Mirror WAVE tube based line-stage is one of StereoTimes 2023 Most wanted Components

Last week my review on the Audio Mirror WAVE reference line-stage was posted on the Stereo Time website. It gives the details why I put the WAVE on the 2023 MOST WANTED COMPONENTS LIST. It's a terrific tube based preamplifier which offers great transient speed, clarity, richness of tone/color, and panoramic sound-staging. 

Hope you enjoy the review. Teajay (Terry London)


Teajay -- thanks. Just my opinion, but I find it odd to not have one as standard for $13k.

Even simple, elegant gear that's directed toward audiophiles would assume there would be a need for a pre-out for subs. My two cents.

It would be nice to see internal components. I didn’t find under the llid pictures. Could anybody publish it please?

Audio Mirror is selling the Wave at a 30% discount right now so $9100 instead of $13k.  Curious if anyone owns or has heard this preamp.  Price wise, it's up there with the Zesto Leto Ultra and Backert Labs Rhythm pre's and a few others.
