Vertere PHONO‐1 MkII MM/MC Phono Preamp

Phono stage design is rather challenging, as the circuit has to work with the minuscule cartridge signal that is typically only a fraction of a millivolt. That tiny signal has to be cleanly amplified a thousand-fold and equalised to the exact RIAA curve in order to faithfully represent the original recorded music.

Vertere’s PHONO-1 is designed to achieve just this, providing the full enjoyment that is so often missing even in very high-quality vinyl playback systems.

PHONO-1 has more than 10 gain settings to match the level perfectly for almost any cartridge. An extensive choice of 15 resistance and 9 capacitance settings ensure correct frequency balance even for most Moving Coils that commonly exhibit a frequency response lift above 10kHz.

Compact foot print of the main circuit and the use of highest quality components, maximise dynamic range and deliver supreme detail resolution. Utilising only tight tolerance components for PHONO-1’s accurate IRAA circuit ensures a refined, natural timbre that brings the music to life.

Our use of the best components guarantees optimal performance from the double-shielded internal circuits, while a 3-way phono PCB Ground Management switch allows achieving lowest ‘earth hum’ in almost any installation.

This level of attention to detail, performance and design execution is only found in much higher price products.

Vertere PHONO-1 redefines the standard for entry level High-End phono stages.
