no longer for sale

Audio Research PH-2 Balanced Phono Preamp.

Not seen very often, very rare and and some Audiophiles prefer it to the ARC PH-3.

                                          One owner.  Serial # 63158005.

Nice shape for its age (circa 1992), rated 8/10 for age likely consider as new.

Factory box, manual and extra loading resistors.

This unit is solid state, no tubes! This unit also is balanced input and output only, NO single ended.  That means XLR connections only, no RCA connection. 

Fun fact, phono cartridges are inherently balanced!  As such why not maintain that balanced nature by using a balanced phono preamp. You will also need a balanced preamp to accept the balanced signal from the PH-2. The PH-2 has 48 dB of gain, so works best with higher output moving coils or moving iron/magnet cartridges. Unit has not been modified. Only things missing are the Audio Research cartridge loading resistors.
