This is our highest model of phono pre-amplifier, it is equipped with all the desired features of a hi-end phono stage. Variable input loading impedance for MC cartridges from 100ohm to 47Kohm, RC-RIAA (no NFB) ensures the most pure and open sound quality. A super low impedance (200ohm) balanced output stage fully utilizes our balanced input pre-amplifier exceptional quality.
Super strong and dynamic power supply with ultra-big rectifier tubes, give you very open and dynamic sound with exception naturalness and smoothness, you can even use 845 or 211 tube in this section .
This phono stage can give you a very warm and open sound quality, making the vinyl even smoother, sweeter, and more alive than ever. A no-negative-feedback circuit ensures no compression in the sound stage. At least 20-30% more depth and width in the sound stage can be achieved, compared with traditional 2-3 tube feedback circuits.
A 40db gain for MM, and 5 selectable gain settings (x3/x6/x9/x15/x30) for the MC step-up stage (40dbMM + 9dbMC to + 29dbMC ) is suitable for any MC cartridge available.
There are two separate gain controls sitting beside each 6SL7 output tube for left/right channel output level balancing purposes, so that you can use whatever NOS tubes you desire, without the requirement of closely matching.
This is the new Mk2 version with high current filament regulator, which ensure most quietest back ground noise operation even with super low output MC cartridges, the background noise is almost as quiet as CD playback..
