who appreciate the finest in analogue reproduction, this might
be the last word. Manufactured in very limited quantities
as part of Air Tight's 10th Anniversary celebration, Miura-san's
Air Tight ATE-2 has few peers in the marketplace.,
And this unit is in EXCELLENT condition.
Quite simply, this is undoubtedly one of the best phono /line
stages I have ever owned. The Air Tight ATE-2 Reference phono/line
stage is Air Tight's top of the line, ultimate state of the
art, phono equalizer and line stage. But more than that, this
piece made my prized analog setup sing. And its line stage
was on par with the best.
The ATE-2 has two phono and one line level input. Includes
all important Mono/Stereo switching. And unlike many tube
preamps, this unit is truly an "all tube" design
with tube rectification and regulation, a very important attribute
if after the ultimate in musicality. The robust power supply
is fully shielded in copper and is overbuilt.
Please take the time to view the pictures, all clickable to
FULL SIZE 1200px views. The construction and build of the
ATE-2 is amazing, perhaps one of the cleanest layouts with
an excecution of fit and finish that is extraordinary, both
electrically and asethetically. Wiring is full point to point,
using a copper shielded loam for precise layout. Copper shielding
is abundant for excellent noise rejection with the power supply
really hate to let it go but have decided to downsize
my system having just moved to Manhattan with a noticeable
drop in square footage. This preamp is the matching
partner to the Air Tight ATM-300 SET amplifier, another
piece I just now sold, sadly.

12BH7, 6X4 in power supply. Nice Old Stock, EF-86 and
