The micro iPhono2 changes the way you listen to vinyl recordings. Listen to your record without it. Then plug in iFi’s phono stage and notice the difference. Hiss and background noise are replaced with unmistakable clear sound that makes it hard to believe you’re listening to the same LP.
Most phono stages run in Mini volts or at 1 volt – and they amplify hiss. The micro iPhono2 boosts the output to 2 volts while cutting hiss at the same time. No other phono stage has this kind of power. And with multiple speed options, your vinyl will sound even more natural, just as the artists intended.
The micro iPhono2 includes:
- DirectDrive – To create accurate sound and sonic transparency,
- Class A TubeState – To amplify the signal but not the background noise
- Any cartridge at any price to be accommodated optimally. Maximum gain is now an astonishing 72dB. This can handle the lowest of low output MC cartridges. Even the legendary Ortofon MC-5000 does not require sound-degrading step-up transformers.
- The newly designed RIAA Equalisation circuit guarantees a +/- 0.2dB accuracy of the RIAA EQ from 20Hz – 20kHz - a truly reference class performance.
- The Class A stage has Pro series pedigree. It combines N-Channel J-Fet and a PNP bi-polar transistor for a warm, unsurpassed, natural sound.
- To DC Infinity and beyond. The all new 'DirectDrive® Servoless DC Infinity' circuit has no capacitor and no DC-Servo meaning no noise and no distortion.
