Our PhonoMax very quickly became well respected amongst vinyl fans. This extraordinary tube design is perfectly compatible with many pick-ups, MM or MC, as long as the output power is no less than 0.3mV. You can choose between output impedances of 200 Ohm, 500 Ohm, 1 kOhm and 47 kOhm.
And the sound? Simply magic. Why invest in more expensive phono amplifiers?
All tubes are hand selected and individually tested. Each unit undergoes a strict quality check and measurement, a 24 hours stress test and fine-tuning, prior to being shipped.

Report in Hifi Tunes Röhrenbuch: “…You might find something more massy elsewhere, but almost certainly no more quality. The brilliant about PhonoMax – for sure, also because of its performance, it is worth every single Dollar…”
