For sale now is the Phono 2 from Vista Audio which has received some important upgrades. The Vista Audio Phono 2 is already a great performer, right out of the box. The Standard Phono 2 features:

  • Wide adjustment rage suitable for wide range of MM and MC cartridges
  • Direct Coupling (no capacitors in the signal path)
  • Class A operation
  • Bandwidth: 10Hz-40kHz
  • Input impedance: Eight presets 47 ohm – 47 kohm (plus sockets for custom loading resistors)
  • Gain: Six presets: 40-70dB
  • Passive RIAA compensation
  • Active offset Cancellation
While the stock unit is already great, I decided to make a great thing even better. This unit has received the following upgrades:
  • Op Amp Upgrades: I removed the stock op amps and replaced all of them with sockets. This way, you can roll your own op amps! This unit comes with a Sparkos SS3602 in the first position and a Burr Brown OPA2228P op amp in the second position. The result? MUCH better clarity, frequency extension and dynamics over the stock unit. Truly excellent!
  • Power Supply Upgrades: I also replaced the stock voltage regulators with Sparkos Discrete voltage regulators. These impart better mid-range clarity, a blacker background and better instrument separation over the stock voltage regulators.

This highly flexible phono stage is an op amp rollers dream! I personally have have tried various IC, Sparkos and Staccato op amps. Find the sound that works best for your system! I am selling this unit to make some room for future projects. My loss is your gain!
