Phono Stage – Aquarius
Aquarius is a phono stage that features a single enclosure design. It utilizes special operational amplifiers in fully differential configuration, so hum due to the power supply is eliminated. Two versions are available: one with fixed input impedance and capacitance (102 Ohm & 200pF) but with adjustable gain to compensate for various MC cartridges, and one with adjustable input impedance, input capacitance, and gain (for both MM and MC cartridges). Adjustments are made by easily swapping female pin headers on which resistors and capacitors are soldered. This method eliminates additional cables that are susceptible to electromagnetic interference, thus reducing noise and increasing audio pleasure!
