Completely custom Fidelio phono stage with Ace Tomato Audio Statement level upgrade ($2500). This unit is nothing short of a show piece with its plexi top cover and premium parts on display. Everything possible to get the best from this fully differential (balanced) design has been done. This includes Caddock MK132 1% resistors in every location that matters, Hovland Musicaps with full suspension from the circuit board, matched active gain devices (dozens or more tested to find two identical), Wima poly film caps (double the tolerance of the factory parts), custom high and low gain modules both included (2x pairs), Nichicon MUSE power supply caps, completely suspended circuit board, Kimber wiring, WBT 0800 silver solder used throughout, star grounding, chassis damping on all surfaces, fully balanced inputs and outputs, super quiet power transformer fully isolated from the chassis, external ground lug, half inch think aluminum face plate, EAR L-021 feet and RCA to XLR input adaptors included.
MM gain is 34dB, MC is 54dB.
