The new EINSTEIN Phonoamp is the ultimate answer of a superb phono amplifier in a discrete single transistor design. 48 single transistors are used in three amplifier stages. Such an incredible effort is extremely rare in the audio industry, but the superb technical specifications justify this commitment. There is no other manufacturer we know of who is as successful in a discrete design like this. Due to the mechanical novelty of two faraday cages for perfect shielding this phono amp is dead quiet. No hiss, no noise which can damage the fragile signal the cartridge delivers. To avoid any mechanical sound limiting interferences into the fragile phono signal too, the two mono phono amps in the inner faraday cage are set up on a floating sub chassis.
The sophisticated high energy external double mono power supply with a high efficient input filter avoids any interference from the mains into the audio circuit. Even higher voltage drops or peaks don`t affect the sound quality.
To achieve best sonic results The Phonoamp is specified for moving coil cartridges only. The perfect impedance load can be adjusted by custom made RCA plugs in the rear panel of the phonostage. The design of The Phonoamp is optimized for low level, as well as for higher output level cartridges. There is no need for any gain adjustment. This way there are no sound limiting interferences of dip switches in the signal path for cartridge loading and gain adjustment.
The sound is absolutely stable and in focus with an incredible authority and live character. A perfect three dimensional soundstage with details you have never heard from your vinyl records. Even the finest details will be transferred to your ears. The dynamics over the complete frequency band are something very special - this phonoamp makes pure, delicate, smooth, explosive and exciting music.
