All-Analog Discrete FET and Gain Stages, Continuously Variable Loading, MM/MC Flexibility, Instant Upgradeability: Audio Alchemy PPA-1 Phono Preamplifier Plays LPs With Stellar Resolution and Detail

All-analog discrete FET gain and EQ stages, continuously variable input loading, and MM/MC flexibility help turn the Audio Alchemy PPA-1 MM/MC phono preamplifier into your vinyl record collection's new best friend. Extremely quiet and filled with top-quality parts, this Peter Madnick-designed component is committed to handling the analog signal in its path to the preamplifier with exacting precision and care. With no integrated circuits in the signal path, PPA-1 helps play back LPs with stellar resolution, scintillating purity, and fantastic detail. Continuously adjustable loading on two single-ended RCA inputs and MM/MC capability means you'll never need settle on any specific settings or cartridge type. In addition to flexibility, PPA-1 can be easily upgraded at any time via the Audio Alchemy PS-5 power supply, which offers superior filtration, tighter voltage regulation, a lower noise floor, and better energy storage. Super-compact dimensions, balanced XLR and RCA outputs, a two-year manufacturer warranty, and Music Direct's 100% Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee complete a phonostage at the ready to significantly elevate your analog experience.
