When you see the iPhono for the first time, you won’t believe your eyes. The compact package belies its serious, heavyweight performance. Its features include 6 x stereo EQ curves, adjustable MC load, dedicated ultra-low noise MC stage, adjustable MM load, adjustable gain, exemplary Class A circuitry with an ultra-wide dynamic range approaching that of CD.
Previously such high-end features have rarely, if at all, been available to only a very select number of phono preamplifiers costing at least 10x more. Despite its modest price and wealth of features, most important of all, the iPhono enhances your vinyl system.
With the iPhono in your vinyl playback system, from the moment the needle is seated in the record grove you will know the iPhono is something special. The fact that this is how vinyl should truly sound, is in no small part due to the Class A TubeState tri-brid amplification which offers a natural, real sound.
To achieve the ultimate performance not previously thought possible, iFi engineers went back to the Golden Age of audio design. The entire iPhono design is based on exquisite Class A TubeState amplification, a tri-brid of Bi-Polar devices, J-Fets and Advanced Discrete components. This is no ordinary phono stage.
With lower distortion, better dynamics, and excellent transient response, your complete music collection will simply sound alive. Your Rock, Jazz and Classical— music will sound sweet, vivid, and lifelike. The full potential of your music collection realised, at last.
The iPhono isn’t just a perfect match for your LPs. It’s a perfect match for your cartridge, too. With up to 66dB of gain, individually adjustable MM and MC load across a wide range (high-end features available only in phono amplifiers costing many times more) any cartridge at any price may be accommodated optimally, making the iPhono one of the most versatile phono stages to grace the vinyl sector.
When you see the iPhono for the first time, you won’t believe your eyes. The compact package belies its serious, heavyweight performance. Its features include 6 x Stereo EQ curves.
The iPhono has a total number of 6 different Stereo EQ curves to choose from. So you never have to play an LP with the wrong EQ curve ever again and put up with sub-optimal sound quality. This makes the iPhono one of the most tonally-accurate phono preamplifiers ever, period.
