§ For Sale: (Russian) Valankon    posted Apr 6, 2019, runs thru Oct 6, 2021 (show)

  • For Sale: (Russian) Valankon " УП 01 " Tubed Preamp

    An excellent sounding Russian hi-end tubed preamp unknown in the USA reworked to cure one design fault (some hum) and then extensively modified to take it up to an outstanding level.

    Since these are unknown, it's a bit hard to sell via the usual sites so I know I can't even recoup the $1,000 to 1,500 or so in just labor I put into it (I didn't really track that as it was for my own use, but it was a lot of work), never mind the parts cost added or whatever the unknown value of the stock unit may be. But if someone is interested in getting a terrific sounding pre at a sacrifice price, you can take it home for a listen. If you like it, and make a reasonable offer that doesn't insult the work that went into this, you may just become the owner of a bargain. This is the most practical way I can think of to put this up for sale since we all gather at meetings and no shipping makes this simpler and practical. This is not a small piece of gear. (Or even a conventional one anymore.) Just read what this has in it!

    Pictures of the internals are available, just ask. I even have the original spec list in Cyrillic (Russian).

    Contact me at gorkuz@yahoo.com or 845-267-8882.


    It came with excellent Russian military parts, wires and film caps to which a lot of top-quality Polypropylene caps were added as bypasses and double-bypasses, plus some fittingly post-Soviet military Teflon/foil cap blockers in critical locations that I got from Neal Patrone. The critical solid state rectifiers in it have been replaced with HEXFREDs.

    The critical signal wires have been replaced with (mostly shielded) Cardas Litz OFC in Teflon and the critical paths have all been shortened to a minimum using super-grade relays installed right at the RCA inputs. The line level inputs now output directly into a single line pair that goes directly into the line level input circuitry by the shortest possible path that avoids areas this shouldn't go near. The phono relay outputs directly to the phono section. Originally, the more typical architecture ran all the inputs (including the tiny phono signal) separately (lots of wires) from the RCAs in the back to the selector switch in the front and then back almost to the back panel again where the circuit inputs are located, and past things they should not have been near (noise pickup, eliminated now). The selector switch now only controls the relays via regulated DC power to it and then using the original wires to the relay coil contacts only.

    A heavy copper shield has been added over the entire input / output section to shield them from the rest of the preamp including the nearby power transformer to reduce noise floor and there is ERS inside for RF.

    The phono input tubes, originally the Russian equivalent (read: copy) of 12AX7's but with a different pin-out, have been rewired to use 12AX7's which are somewhat better than the originals for this purpose. I vaguely recall I put in Telefunkens but the writing on them came off so I am not sure of that any more.

    All inputs have been equipped with continuously variable impedance controls, as detailed below in the Specifications.

    Extensive use of ERS RF absorbent throughout the unit in critically placed execution.

    All (high quality, gold plated) RCAs are clean, fresh and CAIG treated.

    The Specifications, translated from Russian with the improvements noted:

    Phono: Meant for MM but has >73dB S/N specified (now improved) and 5mV sensitivity and a huge amount of gain so it can really handle medium to high output MC in easily with the upgrade infinitely variable 0 to 48K input impedance circuit installed inside it now. The input impedance can now be set to taste by listening while setting.

    3 Line level inputs: labeled "CD", "1" and "2" of 150mV sensitivity and 98 dB S/N. Now equipped with variable input impedance 10K-90K with 55K detented at 12 o'clock.

    Tape Inputs & Outputs (line level).

    Balance control.

    Switch bypassable Tone controls (high & low) and /- 4dB Loudness control.

    Maximum signal output: 30V with an Output Impedance of less than 300 Ohms

    Tubes: Phono input tubes (2) modified to use 12AX7, the rest are Russian 6Н2ПЕВ, 6Н3ПЕ

    Size: 48cm-W х 11,2cm-H х 40cm Deep and Weight: 14 Kg / 31.8 Lbs.

    Point to point wiring, hand built, now hand rebuilt.

  • It would be picked up from my home in Woodland Park, NJ. It works, but is not compatible with my Magnapan 20.1 dipole radiators. The Maggies need a dipole subwoofer to address below 40Hz.

  • 21 3/8”W x 24 3/8”D. Accepts a typical single-width equipment racks and rolls back & forth on wood and low-nap carpeted floors to make access to the back of the equipment convenient. Hi-tech laminated MDF constrained layer construction using a special vibration damping glue (1 ½” thick), nicely edged with wood also glued with the special vibration glue and “floating” from one layer to avoid transferring vibration between them. High-capacity multiple rollers are additionally isolated from the platform with special hi-tech polymer pads. Use of multiple rollers distributes weight to reduce coupling to the floor, where coupling is undesirable for equipment racks.

    Originally $1,200 custom made: reconditioned -----------------------------now only $400
