DYNAVECTOR P75



The Dynavector P-75 Phono Stage is a unique entry level phono stage with several outstanding features that ensures the P-75 will out perform other phono stages costing considerably more then the P-75.

The P-75 also includes the patent P E (phono enhancing) circuit designed by Dr Tominari to dramatically improve the performance of low output moving coil cartridges. By a simple arrangement of jumper settings all conventional, MM, MI, high and low output cartridges are catered for.

The P-75 also has an advanced power supply that operates from a conventional 12V AC to DC adaptor. This adaptor has absolutely no bearing on the sound quality. The P-75 power supply runs at over 1/4MHz. It takes the low grade single voltage DC supply from the ac adapter and converts it to the dual high voltages required for true professional quality audio reproduction. The operating frequency is over 12 times higher than the top of the audio band and it incorporates super low noise wideband regulators in its output stage to give ultra low noise supply rails. The internal P-75 power supply is totally self contained and stores many times the maximum possible energy requirements for the phono amplifiers. This means that the quality or size of the external ac adaptor is irrelevant. Increasing the capacity of the external supply will make no difference to the quality of the sound.

Like all Dynavector products, the P-75 whilst innovative carries on our proud tradition of faithfulness to the heritage of phonographic recordings, exhibiting clear, full-bodied, distortion free sound that analog enthusiasts require.

Key Features:

* Suitable for all conventional stereo cartridges.
* User friendly adjustments. No soldering or extra components required.
* Patented Dynavector Phono Enhancing circuit.
* Unique ultra low noise power supply.

It boosts and equalises the stereo cartridge signal to "Domestic Line-Level", which makes it suitable for use with Integrated Amplifiers and Receivers, Active and Passive Preamplifiers. It also compensates for the high frequency droop of the mastering studio's cutting machine, which puts back the music's harmonics you probably never heard before

Play Low Output Moving Coil using the Elevator EXP Head Amp pre-the Era Gold V for the ultimate uncompromising musical experience

The "full-blown" Era Gold V comes with the PSU1-24 Power Supply. Also offered is the entry level "Intro", which is supplied with a plug-top style power supply (Upgrades by buying the PSU1-24 when you're ready).

Key Features:

Key Features:

* Fully balanced from input to output
* Zero-feedback
* Ultra low noise discrete FET circuitry
* Two-stage passive RIAA equalization
* Balanced and single-ended inputs and outputs

* Ayre conditioner (patent pending) power-line RFI filter

$2500.00


ARTEMIS LABS PH-1




The Artemis Labs PH-1 Phono Pre Amp is the result of several years of perfecting a simple yet extremely high quality tube-type preamp. High quality parts are used throughout and the design is rugged and reliable. The sonic qualities: tonality, detail, smoothness, and presence are outstanding. The PH-1 is optimized for medium- to high-output cartridges, either moving coil or moving magnet.

Key Features:

* 50dB of gain with low hum and noise - Allows the use medium- to high-output cartridges.
* TexTool™ ZIF socket connected to phono inputs - Allows any shunt loading resistor or capacitor to be effectively attached.
* Three stage design with passive RIAA equalization - Equalization is flat within +/- 0.2dB from 20Hz to 20KHz and is flat to +/- 0.5dB to 40KHz. Last two stages have gentle feedback and can drive as low as 8K loads without the use of cathode followers.
* All key audio circuits wired point-to-point using military-style terminal boards - Sonic degradation due to fiber-glass PC boards is minimized.
* One 6N1P tube, two 12AX7/ECC83 tubes and two 5687 tubes. All but 6N1P are run in Cool-Swap™ Configuration - An idle spare in each tube, plus tubes run cooler.
* Choke loads for each triode - Allows tubes to run in their most linear mode and permits lower plate supply voltage
* Low-Gain MOSFET high voltage regulation - One regulator per channel minimizes cross-talk and gives a firm, stable sound without sounding “solid-state”.
* All Artemis PreAmps Designed and built in the United States using the best parts from around the world

AC power lines create noise. Period. There's only one feasible way around that annoyance. Batteries. Designer Ron Sutherland brings us a new battery-powered phono stage with smart circuitry that allows this preamp to turn on and off automatically, thereby maximizing the life of your batteries.

One of the noisiest components in your home stereo is the incoming AC power. Even if it were delivered to your home as idealized 60Hz sine wave, it would not stay that way long. The audio power amplifier does not draw current from the power line evenly. There is a large current spike drawn when the sine wave reaches its voltage extremes, while at other times current draw is essentially zero. High frequency harmonics and noise are introduced into the same power line that's used for sensitive phono preamplification. The Ph.D. doesn't even have a power cord. Instead, 16 alkaline D cell batteries line the sides of the chassis. After about 800 hours of playing time (roughly half the life of a cartridge), a red light will indicate that your batteries are running low. Replacements cost about a buck a piece.

The Ph.D. turns on the moment your stylus is stimulated. From there, the unit automatically looks for a signal every half-hour for just a fraction of a second. If it doesn't find a signal, it will stay on for an additional half-hour with a yellow light indicating that it is preparing to turn off.

What's more, the Ph.D. has four different loading options and gain-stage settings that are simple to adjust. There's never been anything quite like the Ph.D.

EAR 324




The EAR 324 is the perfect solution for the vinyl-loving audiophile who demands the highest quality and the greatest flexibility. It features perfectly tailored inputs for both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges and offers accurate, low-noise amplification with vanishingly small signal degradation.

It has long been realized that amplifying the tiny signal from phono cartridges is one of the hardest jobs in electronics. Designer Tim de Paravicini has been devising elegant and efficient solutions to the problem over several decades, and the 324 represents the summary of his thinking. A fully transistorized product, it draws heavily on his acclaimed '312 Control Centre' preamplifier in its circuitry but adds flexibility with switchable input impedance for both moving coil (MC) and moving magnet (MM) cartridges. Two separate inputs allow easy switching between two turntables (or two arms on one turntable), ideal for the serious collector who may have a separate deck and pickup for mono discs.

Of those inputs, Input One is switchable for MC or MM cartridges. In MC mode, a built-in step-up transformer (the same as in the Yoshino MC3 standalone transformer) gives optimum noise performance and matches the cartridge through 4ohm, 15ohm and 40ohm windings. In MM mode, impedance is fixed.

Input Two is a specialist MM input with switchable resistance and capacitance loading to optimize response from any high quality MM cartridge. Both inputs feed into a very low noise, low distortion and high headroom amplifying stage which uses a unique RIAA equalization scheme to optimize stability and sound quality.

Balanced and unbalanced outputs with a low source impedance ensure that any line preamplifier can be comfortably driven through almost any amount of good quality cable. Gain is equivalent to 54dB at 1kHz (1.2V out for 2.5mV in, MM) but can be reduced by 6 or 12dB if needed. Absolute phase is switchable and mono operation can also be selected.

With EAR/Yoshino's famed sound quality and reliability assured, the 324 is truly the phono stage of choice for the dedicated vinyl enthusiast.
