Due to the much lower value of the British Pound vs US Dollar we have reduced the price of many of our British made products! Hi-Fi Choice group test winner February 2014. Hi-Fi News, "Outstanding product". Hand made in the England. Don't be fooled by the Rialto's relative affordability; this is a genuine high-end phono stage and competes way above its price range. The first phonostage to bear the Rothwell name was designed as far back as 1989 and was debuted at the London Hi-Fi Show of 1990 (it was an expensive valve design with many of the features subsequently adopted by other manufacturers, like a large outboard power supply and selectable cartridge loading). The goal when designing the Rialto was to achieve high-end performance without the high-end price tag. To this end, every effort was put into maximising sound quality and everything that has no bearing on sound quality was sacrificed. The Rialto uses discrete components throughout with no op-amps, so the circuit operates in Class A with no crossover distorton. The components are audiophile-grade and the circuit has been designed to achieve low noise even with low ouput moving coils. However, for optimum performance from an MC cartridge, we recommend using the Rothwell MCL step up transformer into the MM stage of the Rialto. Features: Outstanding performance with MM or MC cartridges Discrete Class A circuit External power supply Low power consumption Dimensions: 60 x 155 x 92 mm Packed weight: 770g
