MINT!! Musical Surroundings Phonomena II+ LP Phono Stage & Linear Power Supply.
The Phonomena II+ features an improved chassis design, based on our more expensive Nova II, and is available in both black and silver finish. Boasting a new circuit board layout, the Phonomena II+ delivers discrete dual-mono signal paths, affording the listener more vibrant and dynamic music reproduction with a “blacker” background. Expertly made, inside and out, the Phonomena II+’s small footprint optimizes signal path integrity, while its black or silver finish options are sure to match the rest of your components. The Phonomena II+ is proudly Made in the USA and provides phenomenal sound and flexibility at an affordable price.

When the Linear Power Supply is used to power the Phonomena 2, Phonomena 2+, and Nova III phono stages, the LPS will dramatically improve their sound by providing cleaner power and eliminating the noise from a Digital Switching Power Supply. This switching noise is higher in frequency than the audio signals and can modulate the actual audio signal. The Power Supply Voltages may also have the switching noise on them. A Digital Power Supply also radiates via Magnetic Field Emissions that can be transmitted to other components in the Audio System.
The LPS uses a Tamura Transformer to convert the line voltage to a usable voltage for the Musical Surroundings Solid State Preamps. Tamura Transformers are very well known for use in Tube Amplifiers, Tube Power Supplies and other audio circuits.
