Modwright SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition preamplifier


SKU: N/A Categories: ,

Some background Info:


The namesake of Dan Wrights son, Spencer Wright, born 9.0lb at birth, the SWL 9.0SE was released thirteen years ago with great success as a high performance and high value tube linestage.

The SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition retains the 5687 driver tube and many of its features, but is a complete redesign from the original.

Unlike the original, the Anniversary Edition includes a modern headphone amplifier and optional phono stage.

The SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition represents MWIs entry level product with exceptionally high level of performance and value.

Like all MWI products, proudly designed and Hand Crafted in the U.S.A.


2020 TONE Magazine, LLC  “The ModWright SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition preamplifier nails all of the musical fundamentals, giving you a large enough portion of what the high end is all about. Unless you’ve got buckets of cash to spend, you can spend the rest of your life with this baby and not want for more. I’m certainly going to write Mr. Wright a check for one; half for old times’ sake and half to use as a reference in this neck of the woods. Here’s to thirteen more years.”
