‘A remarkable phono stage with tremendous flexibility and exceptional sound.’ – Hi-fi Choice 2016. On demonstration at Criterion Audio Cambridge.
Fully remote control and inputs for up to 4 turntables, this has to be one of the best sounding and value for money phono stages available today. Add the PSX-R to elevate the performance even further.
Phono Signature has been designed to allow up to four turntables to be permanently connected because many vinyl enthusiasts enjoy multiple turntables, arms or cartridges for different records. Each of the four inputs can be accurately matched to the exact specification of the cartridge and the acoustic preference of the user. Adjustment is provided for MC cartridges in; gain, resistance and capacitance. In addition a switchable warp filter is provided to maximise amplifier performance.
Phono Signature features and benefits
4 inputs Up to 4 turntables: arms can be connected and individual parameters stored for each.
MM or MC cartridges: All inputs compatible with both MM and MC cartridges.
Individual cartridge adjust: Adjustable gain, resistance and capacitance for each input.
Level meters: Stereo output level meters with peak hold to optimise MC gain setting.
Input memory: Stored or adjust during the performance for different records or tracks.
Short signal path: Audio circuitry switched with relays to preserve the highest signal quality.
Audiophile RIAA: Circuitry uses a passive RIAA network in between two high quality low noise gain elements.
Remote controllable: Adjust sound parameters and Cyrus system volume from listening position.
XLR & RCA RCA: unbalanced and XLR balanced outputs for matching to all types of amplifier.
Warp filter: To maximise amplifier headroom and prevent excessive loudspeaker LF unit excursions.
Ground lift switch: To help eliminate system ground hum problems.
PSX-R upgrade port: Attach a PSX-R power supply for ultimate performance.
MC BUS: Auto on/off in a Cyrus system.
Green credentials: Less than 0.5 watt standby power usage, long and useful product life.
