R2R Volume Control
Most preamps use a potentiometer for volume control. The EX-P7 uses an advanced microprocessor-controlled, relay-based R2R steps attenuator. Ultra-precise 95 steps linear volume control allow you to fine adjust the volume for late-night-listening.
The EX-P7 uses a high cost 0.2µm gold-plated printed circuit board (PCB). Looking at the PCBs, it is clear that the designer is well aware of the limitations on the fine contact area of the general circuit board, specifically increasing the soldered area at each solder joint and adding as much shielding as possible. The EX-P7 uses two UK made Amplimo transformers, one each for Left and Right channel power supplies, to improve channel separation and to ensure that the power does not interfere with each other. It is essentially a dual mono design in the same chassis.
Goodbye Noise, Welcome Darkness
The two UK-made Amplimo transformers are installed in the CNC-machined aluminum encapsulation, and the entire chassis is made of 8-10mm thick anodized aluminum block, effectively eliminating the nasty EMI/EMC induced from the surrounding equipment.
Signature Sound Characteristics
Neutrality, musicality, rich tonal quality, vivid sound imaging were the main characteristics we aimed for when designing the EX-P7. A Preamp that can produce an extremely detailed, high resolution and dynamic sound. The choice of components, the design, and tuning achieve just that. That is the Kinki Studio gear’s signature sound.

6moons EX-P7 Preamp – Blue Moon Award
The reason why—in a far more populous audiophile world—Kinki Studio’s EX-P7 would be a disruptor is that it embodies a very modern Nagra-esque aesthetic at somewhat lower potency for a fraction of the Swiss sticker which only sacrifices extreme magnification power in trade.
