The phono stage amplifies the very tiny signal (between a few tens of microvolts and a few millivolts) from the phono cartridge to a line-level (about one volt) signal. This line-level signal can then drive a line-stage preamplifier, just as any other source component would.

Accessibility for a larger audience
The “dream team” of the world’s finest audio engineers was thrilled with the results they heard from their Reference Series Orion and Performance Series Perseus phono preamps. They loved the incomparable clarity and detail, as well as the flexibility these preamps gave them to get the best possible sound from their favorite cartridges. They did, however, express the wish that more people could hear the results of their work. So when they talked about creating the Revelation line, they knew they should include a phono preamp. The result is Andromeda, a phono pre that distils the circuits, construction techniques and features they pioneered with Orion and Perseus into a model that is somewhat more accessible to a larger audience.

Absolute Phono Inside

DNA of a revolution

The absolute phono inside is a development of the absolute phono, designed for those who prefer not to have their tonearms modified to incorporate the headshell-mounted first gain stage.

The absolute phono inside uses the absolute phono's innovative circuit design including the current amplification first gain stage. However in the Inside, this is incorporated within the phonostage's main body. Through careful fine tuning, Clearaudio have been able to deliver many of the improvements bought about by the absolute phono in a more conventional phonostage configuration. Both unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR inputs are provided for connection to any tonearm on the market. These feed the fully balanced current amplification first gain stage, avoiding any need to set cartridge loading and thereby ensuring a perfect synergistic match with any moving coil cartridge. This amplified signal then passes to the specially designed main RIAA phonostage, along a signal path free of the usual relays and coupling capacitors, which again enables a more clean, pure and accurate sound. The signal is then equalized and fed to the balanced XLR outputs. The result? The signal to noise ratio is significantly enhanced, almost matching the headshell-mounted absolute phono's ten decibel improvement.

Luxman E-250 (E250) Phono Amplifier
Luxman E-250 (E250) Phono Amplifier
E-250

The E-250 is the latest generation of phono equalizer amplifier from LUXMAN, inheriting the best in design from its predecessor the E-200 that has been the reference model for compact phono equalizer amplifiers since it was released in 2008.

The outstanding functionality of the E-250 is such that load impedance and load capacity can be selected according to the cartridge characteristics for the ultimate enjoyment of the original detail of analog reproduction. The E-250 allows the listener to adjust the fine settings for every performance, releasing the expression engraved in the grooves and creating a hitherto unknown musical impression.

Unison Research Phono One
Phono One

The Phono One was originally released many years ago and enjoyed much admiration and acclaim during its life-span. After it was discontinued it's popularity did not cease, so when the vinyl hi-fi market began to experience a resurgence, Unison Research decided to re-introduce their iconic phono stage with new and improved specifications.

The new Phono One is aesthetically similar to the original, and while it shares some similarities in circuitry with the Simply Phono it earns its place as Unison Research's flagship phono stage in part because of the 10 triodes it uses (5 x ECC83 (12AX7) valves).

As the vinyl hi-fi market continues to grow from strength-to-strength, Unison Research have decided to bring their expert valve knowledge to one of the often over-looked aspects of vinyl playback; phono pre-amplification. Phono stages are essential for taking the low output from a turntable and amplifying it to Line level, so modern amplifiers can deliver an optimised sound signal to your speakers. Sharing its name and appearance with an older model from the Unison Research range, the new Simply Phono boasts enhanced circuitry and an improved layout to deliver first-class audio.

Unison Research Unico Secondo Phono

Unico Secondo Phono

The Unico Secondo draws on many years of knowledge and experience gained by Unison Research's technical team in the field of audiophile hybrid amplifiers. This new amplifier draws on the success of previous models, but also carves its own niche with the implementation of new advancements.

The power supply circuits have been improved with the addition of a secondary winding in the power supply transformer, effectively reducing power dissipation and increasing the overall reliability of the Secondo. The pre-amplifier and driver stages are based on the designs used in the coveted Unico SE and Unico 200 models, though they've been further refined through in-depth analysis, extensive technical measuring and long listening sessions. The use of two high-quality ECC83 (12AX7) valves brings the iconic Unison Research tube sound to the performance.

Unico Nuovo Phono

The Unico Nuovo, like the Unico Primo and previously the UnicoP, is an integrated amplifier that is based on a 'single triode stage per-channel' design. Where it carves it's own new territory is through using 2 x ECC83 (12AX7) valves with a new biasing solution and a parallel double-triode design. By doubling the number of triodes (compared to the Unico Primo) and employing a parallel configuration, the Unico Nuovo is capable of a more refined sonic performance than those that have come before.

The Unico Primo is a hybrid stereo integrated amplifier capable of comfortably delivering 85W RMS continuous power to an 8Ω load. Even though this is the entry level in the Unico line, it possesses many of the outstanding sonic qualities of Unison Research's more high-end amplifier models. By making this a hybrid design, where a power amplifier is combined with an ECC83 triode, you get the best of both worlds with the Unico Primo. It's an amplifier that's powerful enough to drive most loudspeakers, and a sound quality and performance that can only be achieved with advanced valve designs.
