The iPhono2 allows any cartridge to be accommodated optimally. The maximum gain is an astonishing 72dB to handle the lowest of low output MC cartridges. The iPHONO2 has a very impressive 106dB dynamic range. The newly designed RIAA equalization circuit guarantees a +/- 0.2dB accuracy of the RIAA EQ from 20Hz – 20kHz, a reference class performance, period. The iPhono2 is also a perfect match for older non-RIAA LPs too. The iPhono2 retains the very popular 6 different Stereo EQ curves found in the original iPhono.
In the iPhono2, the Class A TubeState® has been further refined. There is an all-new Burr-Brown Soundplus® J-FET type amplifier at the heart of the new Class A, J-FET/BJT output buffer. This new circuit improves the circuit inherent linearity while allowing it to drive 600 ohm inputs with impunity. The power supply filtering has been increased 5X in value.
“So take what’s said in the original review and remove the negatives and that’s what you get for $499: an even more impressive and versatile phono preamplifier that produced a level of liquidity, bloom and textures the original missed, along with superior bass and more precise transients along with blacker backgrounds and easily heard improved transparency.”
