A few years ago we became interested in high performance reel to reel tape playback, after winning a couple of best sound of show comments from reviewers at audio shows when we demoed with tape. Our Seduction phono preamp kit worked well as a starting point from which to build a dedicated tape head, or as it is known in the recording industry, repro amp. When we gave the Foreplay line stage a major revision in the form of Foreplay III (and the ultimate version, Extended Foreplay) and we felt is was also time to bring out a phono preamp kit and a tape head preamp kit that were designed to the same sonic standard. And so after two years of development we proudly introduce Eros in two versions – phono preamp and tape head preamp – with higher gain, better signal to noise ratio and hybrid shunt regulation.
