Class A, discrete FETs

PS Audio Stellar Phono Preamplifier

From Boulder, Colorado comes a new phono preamplifier with the "Stellar" family name.

One of PS Audio's strengths has always been to offer high-quality equipment at an attractive price. They even call their new Phono-Pre the "Giant Killer" and use only hand-selected components. For the internal design, developer Darren Myers has, for example, dispensed with conventional IC typology in the signal path and used only discrete FETs instead. The Stellar is completely Class A and the RIAA equalization is passive. A remote control is included for convenient switching between impedance and gain levels for MM and MC pickups. You can also connect two tonearms at the same time and select them with the remote control. Due to the oversized power supply, the Stellar can provide up to 20 V of effective output voltage. It will be sold for around 2500 Dollars.
