For the person who demands high performance without the 5 figure pricetag usually associated with it, we offer you the Modwright SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition.

Celebrating 17 years in business, Modwright has brought back the component that started it all with the SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition. It is based on the original Modwright product of their own design. The 5687 tube preamp features a similar aesthetic to the original, as well as similar price.

The new SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition features:

  • A high quality integral headphone amp
  • Home Theater Bypass
  • Remote volume control
  • Optional phono
  • A new power supply design and analog stage

The result is exceptional sound at the reasonable price of $2900. It represents everything that we loved about the original SWL 9.0SE and MORE! Proudly Hand Crafted in the U.S.A. 

Build Quality

First of all, this thing is heavy! With a total of 3 high quality transformers and a very thick steel chassis, we were shocked that this was a sub $3000 preamp that was made in the USA.  The front faceplate is a thick aluminum plate as well. Machined to a gorgeous yet understated finish that Modwright is known for. The new power supply is robust and quiet.  



The SWL 9.0 Anniversary Edition is classic Modwright, with excellent tone, dynamics and musicality. Read more in my full review of it on Tweek Geek Speek.
