Phono Preamplifiers

The signals coming out of your turntable are the most delicate of audio sources. A Phono Preamp or Phono Stage takes these tiny signals and boosts them into something more robust for your amplifier to work with. A great phono stage will bring you detail and dynamics without adding noise and hiss.

  • Bryston TF-2 Step Up Transformer

    Low output moving coil cartridges are well loved for their detail and nuance, but need more gain than what most active preamps can provide. Too much active gain for these low-output carts introduces noise and distortion, so let your first gain stage be the TF-2 passive step-up transformer. The TF-2 adds 20 or 31dB of gain (choose at time of purchase), entirely with high quality wide bandwidth transformers and no active parts. Use the TF-2 with a Bryston BP-2 MM active gain stage or with your existing phono preamp.

  • Cyrus Phono Signature ... one of the very best value Phono stages

    Once upon a time Cyrus made a phono stage in called the Phono X, a very adjustable and sensitive line stage for adding a high quality record player to a Cyrus system encasd in their characteristic magnesium alloy chassis. It wasn't cheap, but it was simply fantastic to listen to with a sub zero noise floor and acute but sweet detail presentation.

    They stopped making it in fairly short order, acceding to the then prevailing market wisdom that turntables were primitive tech doomed for extinction. Oh how we cried ... and Phono Xs became sought after and highly collectible.

    Welcome to 2016 and Cyrus have risen to the call of born again vinyl and released the Phono Signature, and it is fantastic.

Available in either MM (moving magnet) only or MM/MC (adds moving coil), the BP-2 is a perfect match for most available cartridges today. Both versions include switchable capacitive loading for use with moving magnet cartridges.

    The MM/MC version adds a pair of ultra low distortion, wide bandwidth step-up transformers (the same ones used in our TF-2) to add compatibility with low output moving coil carts. The transformers can be factory wound for an additional 20dB or 31dB of gain.

    Power the BP-2 from your existing Bryston MPS-2 DC power supply or from the new PS-3 DC power supply.

  • Chord Symphonic Moving Coil Phonostage

    Nestling in the Choral range, the Symphonic is our flagship MC phono stage, offering a range of advanced features over the entry-level Dual.  The high-performance Symphonic uses our latest high-frequency power supply technology to exploit vinyl’s full potential, along with many new key features, to bring the performance levels in line with the Choral range, home of the DAVE DAC/preamp.

    The Symphonic offers an almost infinite number of input impedance and gain options as well as balanced and unbalanced input options to the cartridge, making it a highly flexible device for integrating high-quality turntables into Chord systems. The comprehensive settings options are all externally selectable, with selections signified internally with illuminating LEDs.

    A rumble filter removes unwanted low-frequency rumble signals appearing on both channels. The Symphonic Phono stage conforms to the RIAA curve without the IEC roll-off when the Rumble filter is set to ‘off’ Preamps: CPA 2500, CPA 3000, CPA 5000, and CPA 8000. Preamps: CPA 2500, CPA 3000, CPA 5000, and CPA 8000.; this is commensurate with the high calibre of Chord amplification. The IEC curve response can be added by setting the Rumble filter to ‘on’. According to the wiring of the tone arm on the turntable used, the Symphonic can be operated in either an unbalanced or balanced mode.
