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, our 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.
|Ultra-wide gain from 36dB up to 72dB|
|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 original iPHONO already had a wonderful dynamic range of 90dB that had super-expensive phono stages looking nervously over their shoulder. Well, the iPHONO2 with its 106dB dynamic range has just pulled right out in front with something close to a 15dB bigger dynamic range than the best of the best phono stages.
With infamous test tracks like Tchaikovsky’s 1812 overture, the dynamism and wide-open sonic range is jaw-droppingly good and will take any audio system to a whole new level of enjoyment.
