The AVID Pulsus Phono Preamp Offers Pulse Pounding Performance and High Flexibility!
Amazing Sonics from this Two-Piece MM/MC Phono Preamp w/ Outboard Power Supply!
"Here is a super £1,000 phono stage. In an already cut-throat group the Avid Pulsus comes straight into the top five...it's the personification of power and passion in a market that doesn't have enough of it... Delivers a complete sense of self belief that made it a hoot to hear"
- David Price, HiFi World, awarded 5 out of 5 worlds, Sept., 2010
The new AVID Pulsus is the distillation of the experience gained during the development of AVID's ultra-high performance $5,000 Pulsare Phono Stage. Pulsus is a single-ended, dual-mono two-box preamp; a true high-end design with outstanding performance and build quality at an affordable price.
The AVID Pulsus offers three gain settings (48dB/60dB/70dB) in a Moving Magnet and Moving Coil phono preamp. The outboard power supply helps to keep the noise-floor as low as possible and distortion across the audio spectrum is virtually immeasurable. It offers impressive headroom, great dynamics, tremendous amounts of detail, and a rich, warm midband that make music sound more true-to-life; all characteristics common to AVID's entire line of award-winning products. The Pulsus mates well with any cartridge and its sonic signature can be defined very simply: It's the natural sound of musical instruments in their original recording space.
The Pulsus is built in the UK with high-specification internal components and to an exceedingly high level of quality. Inputs and outputs are both gold-plated RCAs. Gain, resistance and capacitance selections are all easily made from the underside of the chassis, offering exceptional flexibility and ease of use.
A passive RIAA (with Neumann HF correction) circuit using audiophile-grade capacitors helps maintain linearity of reproduction; and its external, regulated power supply provides refined power to causing this to have a vanishing low noise levels. You will be shocked to hear so much more micro-detail from all of your LPs when using the Pulsus.
Passionately manufactured within AVID's own facilities, everything from PCB assembly, testing and quality control to the high-quality casework, all ensure a long lasting, reliable phono stage. The Pulsus is a stunning achievement! Our highest recommendation!
