Incredible Adjustability, Phenomenal Sound! 

The Phonomena II is The Absolute Sound's "Product of the Year" Award Winner!

The Phonomena II is a remarkable phonostage for twice the price. Not only is this the most adjustable phono preamp in its price range, allowing you to fine-tune your set-up, but the Phonomena II is extremely accurate and rich sounding. This phono preamp delivers a level of detail that has been obscured by lesser, noisier phono preamps. Why else would The Absolute Sound award the Phonomena II a Product of the Year for 2009? Because this is one serious tool, and its sound quality belies its price.

"The Phonomena worked very well with MM and MC cartridges and was easy to set up...[it is] at the top of the heap in its class and one that I will be recommending highly to anyone asking me for a great budget phono stage."
– Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio

The Musical Surroundings Phonomena II Phono Stage from Michael Yee is built in California; the Phonomena II is a phono stage with incredible flexibility and performance. Based on a fully-discrete circuit the Phonomena II has rear panel accessible switches for gain and loading. The Phonomena II is the most adjustable for gain and loading than anything anywhere near its price. This allows you to dial-in your phono cartridge perfectly!

The Phonomena II is a complete phonograph preamplifier with RIAA equalization that amplifies the output signal of a phonograph cartridge, either moving-coil or moving-magnet, up to a nominal "line level." The Phonomena II may be used with a receiver or an integrated amplifier. If you use separate components, a line level control unit (preamplifier) is required before the power amp, since there is no independent volume control for the Phonomena II unit. The Phonomena II's power supply connects to the wall with the supplied wall-mount transformer.

"...you could qualify this Phonomena II as a phenomenon, when you consider the cost and compare it to other preamps costing many times the price. This unit offers a lot of musical satisfaction for the analog lover on a tight budget."
– Todd Sageser, Tone Audio
