The latest surface mount componentry, together with precision electronic components and a beautifully crafted case milled from a solid aluminum billet allows the Smart Phono to deliver the performance and features of much higher priced phonostages in a small, stylish and cost-effective package.
The circuit board is embedded with a massive precision CNC-machined solid aluminum block that forms a resonance-free chassis, providing excellent protection for the sensitive components from unwanted vibration and resonance.
The miniature size means that signal path lengths are kept extremely short which leads to a pure and noise-free musical reproduction, much greater than that of typical products in this price range.
The external power supply keeps the delicate phono signal away from mains power, minimising hum and noise. High quality gold plated input and output RCA terminals give a superb contact which will not degrade over time.
Switching is provided for both MM (moving magnet) and MC (moving coil) cartridges, making the Smart Phono compatible with virtually all phono cartridges.
