Vinyl is back – and it’s about time.

But vinyl has changed…

Where once, as a record began, crackle and hiss sent shivers down a listener’s spine, they now expect crystal-clear audio as soon as the needle hits the groove.

Enter the micro iPhono2.

Believe in better.

The micro iPhono2 changes the way you listen to vinyl recordings.

Listen to your record without it. Then plug in the iPhono2 and notice the difference.

Hiss and background noise are replaced with unmistakable clear sound that digs right into the heart of the groove. Makes it hard to believe you’re listening to the same LP.

What noise floor?

The mighty boost.

Most phono stages amplify the signal AND noise (hiss).

The micro iPhono2 amplifies the signal but not the noise. No other phono stage has this kind of finesse. A testament to it superior performance.

And with multiple curve options, your vinyl will sound even more natural, just as the artist intended.

Old becomes new.

The micro iPhono2.0 is a high-end phono stage that changes the way you listen to your LP collection – for both vinyl experts and newcomers alike.

Make vinyl hiss a thing of the past with the micro iPhono2

We guarantee you’ll never look back.

The tech spec.

The micro iPhono2 includes:

  • DirectDrive – To create accurate sound and sonic transparency.
  • Class A TubeState – To amplify the signal with the tonality of valves.

Music becomes clearer and more life-like.

The ‘magic’ of tubes from solid-state.

Our Class A TubeState® technology is the result of nearly four decades of research of our Chief Designer, Thorsten Loesch, on tube and transistor gear.

The key is not to add distortion, but to avoid certain types of distortion. Once it is understood that specific distortions are endemic to solid-state circuitry and are pernicious with respect to subjective sound quality, we eliminate these from solid-state circuitry, without adding on tube-like distortion and noise.

In the iPhono3 Black Label the unique DC-Infinity circuit boosts the circuits DC gain to approach infinity (it is approximately 1 trillion one million times one million; 1012).

Once the feedback loop is closed, this near-infinite DC gain cancels all offset voltages to deliver a direct-coupled output with 0V DC offset. The key to the DC-Infinity circuit is that it only changes the gain below approx. 0.01Hz, while leaving the AC behaviour of the circuit at higher frequencies unchanged, injecting neither noise nor distortion into the audio signal.

Any noise and distortion of the DC-Infinity circuit happens at the same signal level as the output signal and is by design around 100 times less than the noise and distortion of the actual amplifier circuit, so compared to the actual phono stage noise and distortion it effectively disappears.

Quality and Value

If this Phonograph Stage was 9,000.00 it would still be worth it. Virtually no noise floor that I noticed, settings galore even on the gain side, can run any cartridge. This as a game changer in this price range. Features RIAA and others are found in the high end gear. I was saving for that high end gear.

Now I can put well earned money into other things. You must marry the Micro 2 Pre Amp Buffer together and it makes these components a force to be recon with. You will not notice major difference in sound break in for at least a 2 weeks, leave on all the time.
