  • Supports four MC/MM gain selections from 36dB to 72dB and four input impedance settings, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of cartridges
  • Features an intelligent subsonic filter to effectively remove only the ultra-low frequencies caused by warps, not by the music, unlike typical bass-reducing filters
  • With an EIN (Equivalent Input Noise) of -151dBV, this phono stage surpasses some Class A+ models by 20dBV,ensuring a super-silent noise floor
  • Precise RIAA with balanced output, performance matches that of a $1,000 phono stage
  • Internal high-tech 1.2MHz clean power supply, rivaling classic tube amplifiers' LC filtering circuits
