The PureAudio Vinyl Phono Preamplifier is the result of a decade of personal experimentation as part of a search for the very best sounding phono preamplifier. It is designed to extract the very best from your LP record collection.
From the first few notes you hear through this product, you will know there is something quite special in what it does. From a silent background it throws up an involving, musical, 3D soundstage.
As with the entire PureAudio product range this is a dual mono design, sparing no cost in component selection. The power supply is multi-tiered and designed to create a silent environment in which the music circuitry can deliver its best.
The sensitivity, as delivered to you, is suitable for a low to medium output moving coil cartridge, and loading is user selectable from 47 Ohms to 47K Ohms. For customers who demand the ultimate we can custom build these phono preamplifiers with both gain and loading to special order.
PureAudio's universal chassis design fully supports our musical goals. Constructed from heavy aluminium, stainless steel mesh, and supported optimally on three custom designed feet, the non-resonant, non-magnetic structure presents a beautiful, architectural look.
"Dynamics are graceful but authoritative. Rhythmically the Vinyl is lively but well controlled, toe tappingly good in the best Linn tradition. Breathtaking transparency allows you to hear deep into the recording without ultra-analytical dissection. Individual musical threads are allowed to develop and coalesce into an organic whole. The over-riding impression is one of ease, forgiving but not obscuring...Nothing short of the best imported super high end models come close to the sonic purity and musicality of the Vinyl, with none offering the same sheer value for money. This is a little piece of magic that I would gladly call my own." - Audioenz.co.nz (May 2012). Read the full review here.
