Pre-amplifier circuit description The digital pots Z108D and Z108A control the bass and treble
respectively. This is done by moving the wiper connected to the
frequency-sensitive impedance between the non-inverting and
inverting terminals of Z112A, effectively changing the ratio of
The A85 preamplifier is a high-performance, DC coupled design feedback boost and feed-forward attenuation of the circuit at the

Z108 is controlled by a simple 3-wire serial interface from the
Input switching microprocessor. Each of the digital lines has its own ground return
