The Blackline PH2 is a high performance phono-pre-amplifier that supports both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges. Although some amplifiers have an integral phono stage, PH2 is a dedicated phono pre-amplifier that offers an audible sound upgrade once connected between your Turntable and Amplifier.
PH2 can easily fit into any existing audio system where a phono stage is required.
Even if your existing amplifier has a built in phono stage, PH2 can be connected to Line In and will offer an improved performance as most built in phono stages are not of high quality.
A new addition to our Blackline range, PH2 sits between your amplifier and Turntable and can be switched between moving coil and moving magnet cartridges.
Fundamentally, moving magnet cartridges have a higher level of amplification compared to moving coil type. The phono stage increases the signal level from the turntable cartridge to the amplifier. PH2 will provide a sound improvement over traditional inbuilt phono pre-amplifiers.
