"Best Phono stage I have ever heard"
Harry Weisfeld, VPI Turntables Founder/Owner

“In my already revealing system, the Jens caught me off guard. From the first notes of a reference LP, it unleashed a soundstage so life-like, and so alive with natural detail that I just sat there, completely engaged, mouth open, possibly drooling. Yes, it’s that good, and yes, you need to hear it before spending five figures on any Phono Stage on the market."

I have owned the preproduction Jens phono stage for awhile now. All I can say the production version surpasses it nicely. But that wouldn't mean much if it wasn't for the fact this phono stage handily out performs anything I have owned or heard. It reproduces the sound of LP's with complete neutrality and a total lack of noise, it allows the phono cartridge to reproduce everything with a faithfulness to the recorded event that is unsurpassed. I know this for fact from playing my own recordings both in mono and stereo. Partner the Jens with Miyajima Madake or Zero and you need look no further because there is no better. Just buy more LP's and be amazed.
“I've listened to it as it has progressed towards completion and I find it shockingly good. I've had it in my home for a long listening session and when it left I not only felt embarrassed to again listen to mine but almost couldn't come up with words to say how good the "Jens" phono stage. Unbelievably quiet. A stage so huge that I could not believe my speakers could ever re-produce such a soundstage. Lightning fast and able to handle all transients at all volumes. 70 db ! Un f*#king believably.”
