High-Voltage Power Rail Section and Class A High-Output Stage for Ravishing Performance: whestTWO.2 MM/MC Dual-Mono Phono Preamplifier Excels in Any Analog Chain
The secret to the price-defying performance of the whestTWO.2 MM/MC dual-mono phono preamplifier resides with its elevated high-voltage power rail section adopted from the whestTHREE Signature model. Seldom found in models anywhere near its price class, it is responsible for grand dynamics, serene imaging, and revealing micro-detail, it pairs with a fully discrete, Class A transistor high-output stage to provide vinyl playback marked by remarkable quiet, drive, resolution, clarity, and focus.
Tested in development with Ortofon, Lyra, and Dynavector cartridges, whestTWO.2 also gives you flexibility with practically any cartridge on the market. Six resistive load (100, 220, 470, 1k, 15k and 47k ohms) and six gain options (43dB for MM gain; high-output MC gets covered by 50dB, 55dB; 60dB, 65dB, and 72dB address low-output MC) remain at your disposal, and easily accessed by simply removing two small screws. A pair of true balanced XLR outputs, fed from the Class A stage, ensure stellar signal purity and accurate feed.
Packaged with a 1.2m OFC interconnect and 3.5mm jack-to-RCA interconnects, and able to fit even in snug spaces thanks to its compact dimensions, whestTWO.2 excels in any analog chain. 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guaranteed.
