Jumbo Shrimp features an all-valve design consisting of dual 12AT7 input tubes, 5670 driver tubes and 7044 output tubes. By employing a unique 'White Follower’ output stage over more traditional Cathode Follower stages, the Shrimp can operate at a super-low 50 ohm output impedance meaning that driving almost any source is made dramatically easier. The final result is high-bandwidth, low noise performance with modest local negative feedback and negligible distortion.
Manley include an RF ‘Remora’ remote control as standard with every Jumbo Shrimp operating on a Radio Frequency control medium. Unlike InfraRed options, RF enables users to control their Manley preamp without the usual point-and-click gesture and attenuators can even be controlled from adjacent rooms, through doors and through closed-equipment cabinetry.
