Lyric Audio has been around for many years and is specialized in hand crafted tube amplifiers. The build and sound quality of Lyric Audio's amps is exceptional and the prices are too good to be true. Lyric Audio has currently three amplifiers in their portfolio. The Ti100 - an integrated single ended tube amp for connoisseurs, the Ti140 a very powerful push-pull integrated tube amp and the PS 10, a fantastic tube phono stage.
Whether classical, jazz, rock or pop - the Lyric PS 10 makes the soul of your record heard. Hear details of complex orchestral passages or ripping guitar riffs and percussion.
The tube phono stage PS 10 provides not only a dynamic, finely contoured and balanced sound, but also a high degree of flexibility:
Two inputs A/B (MC/MM or 2x MM), for example, a turntable with two tone arms or two single turntables. Both inputs come with their own 6-step impedance switch to achieve the ideal match of the PS 10 with your pickup cartridge.
Handcrafted in Germany, this stunning phono amplifier impresses not only with its elegant design but reference performance. Ingenious technology, the best components and the complex circuit, without negative feedback, make for superior bass, midrange and life-like soundstage.
The power transformer located in an external housing.
As a result, noise can be reduced to a minimum. The passive RIAA filter is selected with the utmost care.

"...my honest opinion? The Lyric Audio PS 10 is a wonderful Phono Pre-Amp. The longer I listen to music with it, the more I love its' unstressed, stable, precise style. A huge 'YES'! What's missing? A cleverer grounding terminal. Whoever can live with the existing one gets a wonderful velvety, precise sound image with a huge, deep soundstage..."
