Classic PHONO

The new Classic PHONO is arguably the most advanced phono pre amplifier available anywhere in the world today. Designed to exceed the expectations of the most serious vinyl audiophiles, particularly in areas such as outright musical performance, accurate cartridge matching and flexibility of use.

The Classic PHONO allows up to four turntables to be permanently connected because many vinyl enthusiasts enjoy multiple turntables, arms or cartridges for different records. Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.

Four turntables may be permanently connected allowing the listener to easily switch between turntables, arms or cartridges as desired. Each input may be adjusted between; MM or MC, gain, resistance and capacitance. Settings are conveniently saved to memory for future reference.

Stereo output level meters working in real time allow clear and accurate gain adjustment to optimise the headroom available from your system for each MC cartridge.

The Classic PHONO enjoys a high capacity and very low noise DC power supply that enables the pre amplifier to provide an extremely wide dynamic range ensuring extended signal levels long before clipping. Attention to circuit layout and component placement ensures a very low noise floor to further expand musical dynamics.

The passive RIAA filtering uses very high performance metallized polyester capacitors for ultimate accuracy and performance.

The Classic PHONO includes a port for the PSX-R2 power supply. Power from the PSX-R2 is routed internally to provide a more stable, low-noise power supply.
