UNISON RESEARCH SIMPLY PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER
SIMPLY SUPERB MM / MC PHONO PRE-AMPLIFIER
Phono preamps with valves are becoming increasingly common, but few of them offer stunning performance within their respective price class. The Unison Research Simply Phono is simply that—an outstanding tubed phono stage that offers incredible performance for the price. The Simply Phono is also the most logical choice to match with Unison Research amplifiers, although it works perfectly in any quality hi-fi system.
The Simply Phono is an all-tube phono pre-amplifier. It employs four ECC83 (12AX7) double triodes, arranged so the first two tubes act in parallel as a maximum gain stage, implementing a particular configuration called “ionic bias”, in order to improve performance. The RIAA equalization network is a completely passive solution, and premium components have been selected throughout to deliver truly high-end characteristics.
The Simply Phono can accomodate both Moving Magnet (MM) and mid-to-high output Moving Coil (MC) cartridges, and features switchable impedance settings for optimum load matching. Due to its high-end specifications, the Simply Phono is a great addition to any audio system.
"I was so caught up in the music I dropped the notepad and closed my eyes, welcoming the therapeutic sonics that washed over me."
"I give it my highest recommendation, and it will surely win a PFO Writers Choice Award from yours truly..."
