    Project Phono Box DS2 USB Phono Stage $899.00

    A lot of people already have or plan to buy a very high quality turntable, driven by the fascination of the analogue sound. Many of them also want to record their vinyl in a simple, yet high-end way. The Phono Box DS2 USB is the perfect solution. It is a sophisticat-ed phono stage, based on a high-end passive/active ultra linear phono equalisation. MM and MC capability as well as extensive vari-able impedance and capacitance settings allow to match any cartridge, even of highest class for optimum performance. Two individu-al phono inputs allow you to use two different turntables or tonearm / cartridge combinations with different sound characteristics to perfectly match your preferred type of music.  

    A very low noise and jitter free A/D converter transfers the analogue signal into high resolution digital format (PCM up to 192kHz or DSD 128). Via its USB output you can record your vinyl on any computer. There is also an analogue line input to digitalize other ana-logue audio sources. A standard line output to connect the unit to your hifi system isn’t missed. The Phono Box DS2 USB is manufac-tured in a beautiful chassis made out of aluminium and metal, which gives an elegant functional look and avoids the influence of me-chanical or electromagnetical interference.

    Goldnote PH-10 Phono Stage From $1,995.00

    THE FIRST PHONO STAGE WITH 2 INPUTS AND 6 EQ CURVES

    PH-10 is an ultra-versatile phono preamplifier that offers unique features, including EQ CURVES, LOAD and GAIN adjustments: a fully analogue design engineered exclusively with high quality coils, capacitors and resistors.

    PH-10 is controlled via knob and display using a sophisticated micro-controller to select the functions through our custom firmware that is loaded on a micro SD dedicated flash memory and can be updated easily via PC. The micro-controller is separated and independent from the audio signal path to guarantee always clear and pure sound.

    Once the tonearms are connected, PH-10 can be set with 4 different GAIN levels [-3dB, 0dB, +3dB, 6dB] to match precisely the output level of any MM or MC cartridge.

    The perfect setup is guaranteed with 9 different LOAD options [10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ] that will let you adjust the preamp to match it with a large number of cartridges in a quick, easy way.

    6 EQ CURVES TO DELIVER OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES

    You will finally be able to switch from the internationally recognized RIAA curve, to the DECCA-LONDON or the AMERICAN-CBS-COLUMBIA curve, always graphically shown on the front display. And there's more, because you will also be able to “enhance” each curve with a modern Gold Note proprietary design for superior dynamic and powerful results.

    AUDIOPHILE IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY

    PH-10 shows every detail on its 2,8” colour display powered by Gold Note proprietary SKC - Single Knob Control technology – an intuitive control system developed to easily browse and select all the unit's functions.

    The unit can be externally powered by a dedicated inductive Dual-Mono PSU to enhance even more the performance.

    2 SEPARATE INPUTS

    With two separate RCA inputs you can connect two different tonearms and adjust settings independently for each single cartridge

    4 GAIN OPTIONS

    PH-10 offers 4 different selectable GAIN levels -3dB, 0dB, +3dB, +6dB to precisely match any kind of output level for MM and MC cartridges

    9 LOAD OPTIONS

    Perfect matching is easy and quick to achieve with 9 different load options 10Ω, 22Ω, 47Ω, 100Ω, 220Ω, 470Ω, 1000Ω, 22KΩ, 47KΩ

    ELEGANT & FUNCTIONAL

    Made of solid machined aluminium, the shell body guarantees low frequency resonance, feedback vibrational control and low magnetic inertial field

    DISPLAY & KNOB

    SKC is a unique technology that combined with a TFT display allows quick control of the functions through the single knob joggle

    Pathos Acoustics In The Groove MM and MC Phono Preamplifier $2,095.00

    Developed by Pathos engineers, In The Groove is a very successful phono pre-amplifier, already well known on the market and that has been entirely redesigned now.
    It features high quality integrated circuits, fitting with flexibility to any kind of phono detector.

    It is an analog solid state product, featuring passive RIAA preamplification made up by two chassis, equipped with multi-tension linear power supply and three settings: impedance and capacity can be set by the front panel, while sensitivity by the rear panel.These settings allow finding out the perfect match to get best performance and make the most of your audio system. A final tune of the sound can be gained from analog source, according to your own musical taste and by changing impedance load value.

    It’s about small changes that may meet the taste of the listener or not, but specifically for this reason they reveal all their strong flexibility and adjustment of such electronics.

    Aluminum has been used both for panting and for frame, on the upper part can be found our carved logo.  It is compact and elegant; this product is an important accessory to your audio system to enjoy at best vinyl quality.

    In The Groove is available in two finishes and, if combined with Converto EVO and AmpliD, will set up a perfect audio system both for digital and phono source.
    This product is entirely handmade in Italy.
