For sale is a beautiful, silver anodized Nova II phono preamp in excellent condition. I would say 10/10 Mint, but it's been out of the box so I won't. Used for approximately 250 hours. I paired it with my Sumiko Blackbird LOMC and it was a revelation. A wonderful addition to any analog system. Original packaging with foam inserts included. PayPal add 3%.

For the past 15 years, Michael Yee’s Phonomena phono stage designs
have defined Q.P.R., or Quality/Price Ratio, for phono stages, and the
Nova II is no exception.
Built in California, the new Nova II is a battery-powered phono stage
with incredible flexibility and performance. The Nova II replaces the
popular Nova Phonomena. Our Nova II battery-powered phono preamplifier,
sharing improved chassis design of our MYDAC II, features dual-mono,
discrete circuitry with extensive gain and loading flexibility,
delivering the best sound in its price range. Like the Phonomena II and
SuperNova II, the Nova II has rear panel accessible switches for easily
accessible and highly flexible gain and loading adjustment. It features 2
rechargeable internal NiMH dual-mono battery packs with Smart Sensing
auto recharge feature. All AC and charging circuits automatically
disconnect when listening in battery mode. The Nova II features enhanced
casework design and upgraded internal components.
The Musical Surroundings Nova II is a complete phonograph
preamplifier with RIAA equalization that amplifies the output signal of a
phono cartridge, either moving coil or moving magnet, up to a nominal
“line level”. The Nova II may be used with a receiver or an integrated
amplifier. If you use separate components, a line level control unit
(preamp) is required before the power amp, since there is no independent
volume control for the Nova II. The Nova II’s power supply is internal
and connnects to the wall with the supplied wall mount transformer.
