Phono Box DS

Performance MM/MC phono stage with continuously adjustable catridge loading

$ 299.00


The Phono Box DS is a high-performance MM/MC phono preamplifier that provides a level of flexibility not often found in its price category. Impedance can be adjusted to one of three settings (10 / 100 / 1k ohm) to best match your phono cartridge. Additionally, four capacitance adjustments (47/147/267/367pF) and three input gain settings (40/50/60 dB) provide an unprecedented level of adjustment ensuring the best possible performance from your phono cartridge. High quality component parts are used throughout the dual-mono circuit topology including low noise relays and ultra-low noise integrated circuits.

A large control display reads out all adjustable parameters which can be all be accessed from the front panel.
