micro iPhono2

Only everything has been improved

 

iPhono2-01.png

 

Southport, UK – 25th April 2016

 

The best just made the quantum leap

 

The original iPhono was the ‘benchmark’ phono stage <US$1,000. Only retaining the same design philosophy, we went back to the beginning and designed a ground-up, all-new iPhono2. The design, circuitry and parts are all far-reaching:

 

 

  1. Ultra-wide gain range – 36dB to astonishing 72dB; suits any cartridge.
  2. Whisper quiet – SNR of >86dB, an impressive 10dB quieter than the original.
  3. Latest AMR trickle-down technology: revised Class A, TubeState® circuit for unrivalled linearity.
  4. DirectDrive® Servo-less ‘DC infinity’ circuit. No capacitor AND no DC-Servo means zero added noise and distortion, there is no purer audio signal path.

 

The sonic performance of the iPHONO2 when partnered with any cartridge from the Shure V-15 through to the Koetsu Coralstone is something to behold.

 

Features

 

 

  • Ultra-wide gain from 36dB up to 72dB
  • 6 precision stereo EQ curves (±0.2dB)
  • Latest AMR trickle-down technology: revised Class A, TubeState® circuitry
