The Compactron Phono Preamplifier


A new version of the Compactron phono stage is finished.

This is a puristic version without any adjustments. Several features can be specified when ordering, like input selector MM/MC switch, adjustable EQ, phase, etc. Similar to the last Compactron  phono stage.

Gain can be configured based on request up to 86dB MC gain.

This particular demo unit is set for MC and 80dB gain.

The circuit in this unit is RC coupled throughout. 

The phono stage stacked on top of the DAC:

This unit is finished in a bright orange and with light wood side panels.

Best regards
