QUANTITY

DETAILS

Since its launch, the original iPhono became the ‘benchmark’ phonostage under US$1,000.

 

In order to improve upon the sector-defining original iPhono, whilst keeping in essence the same design philosophy, their design team went back to the beginning and designed a ground-up, new iPhono2. The design, circuitry, the parts, the specifications and most important of all, the sonic performance meant the end justified the means.

The iPhono2 allows any cartridge at any price to be accommodated optimally. The maximum gain is now an astonishing 72dB to handle the lowest of low output MC cartridges. Even the legendary Ortofon MC-5000 does not require sound-degrading step-up transformers.

The litmus test of any good phono stage design is that it is able to amplify the signal but not the noise. Hence, we advise customers to take the iPHONO2 home and to not listen to it. Why? They should lower the cartridge and turn the listening level as loud as possible. Then lift the needle again……and listen for the lack of noise that just about every phono stage is affected with.

The Signal-to-Noise ratio of the iPhono2 is 3dB quieter on MC and 10 dB quieter on MM than the original iPhono.

More than ever, listening to vinyl, one can hear ‘into’ the recording itself with the blackest of backgrounds and every nuance, inflection is picked up by the system.
