WITH REMOTE CONTROL
The PA6i may
seem to be simply a preamplifier. It is not. It is the descendant of generations
of PA6 preamplifiers. Each one a definitive step forward in the quest for excellence
in musical reproduction.
The original PA6
pioneered state-of-the-art solid state control for volume, balance and switching
of input sources while most designers were still learning mechanical controls.
User changeable phono modules. Full remote control. Absolute phase inversion
on the remote. Floating Charge Power Supply. Elegance of appearance.
These are hallmarks
of the PA6 lineage. The PA6i of today achieves a level of listening experience
that we would not have thought possible back then.
The PA6i is more
than a preamplifier. It is the cornerstone of a comprehensive Meitner system.
Individual components that may be matched with those of other manufacturers
for superb results, but which together comprise a perfectionist system of unsurpassed

switches or pots

Upgrade: After years of mentally compiling a wish list of enhancements for the
PA6i, Ed Meitner decided to put it all together as a package and call it the
"PLUS" upgrade. This suite of modifications involves changes to:
- The floating
charge power supply, which now becomes a true choke-input filter.
- The circuitry
and signal path, which has been redefined and more thoroughly decoupled.
- The grounding
scheme, which has been made more direct.
