Audio Research PH2
Silver Face Plate
New 6922 EH Gold Pins

A mint condition all tubed Phono Stage from Audio Research with 3 x 6922 valves and with a rich sound.

The PH2 is a Phono Pre-Amplification stage intended for use with an active line-level stereo preamplifier. Fully single-ended from input to output, the PH2 uses a combination of J-FET input stage technology (for low inherent circuit noise) and class A operation vacuum-tube gain via three 6922 twin triodes. Total gain of the PH3 is 54 dB (non-adjustable). Used with typical line preamplifiers having 12 to 18 dB of gain, the PH3 is suitable for Phono Cartridges having .25 mV output or higher. Input impedance is factory-set at 47K ohms, and input capacitance at 90 pF. For optimal matching to moving-coil and moving-magnet Phono Cartridges, both input impedance and input capacitance may be adjusted via simple resistor and capacitor changes.

On the rear panel, the PH3 provides one pair of gold-plated, audiophile-grade single-ended connectors for L & R inputs, and one pair for outputs. High-quality single-ended interconnects such as Audio Research Litz Link 2 brand are strongly recommended for best sonic performance with the PH2.
