The Warm Audio WA12 is based on the Classic 312 style preamp and uses unique component choices that give it a very warm, exciting, opulent tone. The WA12 uses more unique and expensive component choices than many pricier models. You will be hard pressed to find anything as good under $1,000, and many will enjoy it more than $2,000+ pieces.


All component choices have been carefully selected and some even customized. Everything passes the golden ear test.

"I've hand built high-end preamps for professional studios for some time. Warm Audio was started with the idea that all great musicians deserve fully professional gear, despite their budget.
