The Phono Box RS2 sets out to be the ultimate phono preamplifier, in the highest class. It is a fully discrete, fully balanced dual-mono device with split passive RIAA and DECCA equalisation, resulting in a “no expense spared” phono stage designed to achieve the best possible sound. It is also extensively adjustable, suiting it to any system, environment or personal listening taste.

Key Features:

  • High class, affordable phono stage
  • MM & MC capable
  • Sturdy metal casing protects against vibration and interferance
  • Fully discrete hardware design - No op- amps
  • Fully passive RIAA & DECCA equalisation
  • Balanced XLR & Unbalanced RCA inputs & outputs. 
  • Unique continuously variable input impedance loading and channel ballance controll to match every cartridge to %100 (adjustment even while playing) 
  • super low noise and low distortion.
  • Available in silver or black

Elsewhere the Phono Box RS2 circuitry is fully balanced throughout, meaning the + and – signal chains are treated individually for absolute signal integrity, resulting in less unwanted noise, errors, and interferences. It is because of this layout that the phono stage measures so well in its signal-to-noise ratio.

The Phono Box RS2 uses split passive equalisation for both its RIAA and DECCA curves. This is more costly to design and implement, but ensures the most accurate representation of the ideal EQ curve, and allows for better impedance matching.
