Its toroidal transformer, VU-meter and tube preamplifier stand for classic audiophile virtues – streaming, text display and USB port for the technology of modern times. The MyConnect 150 has a CD player and an FM/DAB+ radio on board. Digital sources can be connected via S/PDIF optical and coax, via USB-B (for PC, also high-resolution and DSD-compatible) and USB-A (for sticks etc.). For analog sources there are no less than 7 pairs of high-level inputs and a phono port for MM and MC systems. MC sensitivity and MM capacity can be switched. Via LAN/WLAN, the MyConnect 150 can access the home network as well as Spotify, Qobuz, Tidal and Deezer, with the "Advance Playstream App" for iOS and Android being quite helpful for these purposes. A Bluetooth dongle can optionally also be connected. Advance specifies an output power of 2 x 190 watts into 4 ohms for the built-in output stages. The MyConnect 150 is available from February for 1990 Euros.
