LP playback is fascinating in
its rich presence and freshness of the sound. It quietly demonstrates
superiority of its logical simplicity. However, we are not satisfied
with the sound of today's LP playback systems; most of them sound
too neat and clean, even tasteless, like distilled water.
Phonocube, our intention is to enhance the richness of LP sound,
and differentiate it even more from the sound of a CD.
that Phonocube creates was the target when we were developping
Flatfish and Progression.
- Input impedance 0 ohm
Most of currently available phono equalizers are designed to
amplify the voltage that appears at both ends of a resistor
when a current generated by the cartridge is carried to the
ground through this resistor.
The Phonocube has a unique and
original circuitry (with input impedance of 0 ohm), which
enables all of the current generated by the cartridge to flow
directly into the amplifying circuit.
- Unique equalizing circuit
with advantages of both NF and CR types
Although NF type circuitry is known for its high S/N ratio,
a rise in the high frequency is always inevitable. The unique
equalizing circuit of Phonocube allows the same level of
high S/N ratio while maintaining the smooth and accurate
equalizing character of the CR type.
- Extreme simplicity - minimum
To preserve the freshness of the sound, we reduced
the number of parts as much as possible, 25 per channel, and
achieved the shortest signal pass length ever (44 mm).
- Rigid and
compact chassis construction
The chassis of Phonocube is constructed from two aluminum
tubular frames ( 40 x 80 mm section ) and front and rear
panels of 10 mm thick machined aluminum. Each circuit of
left and right channels is encased in a separate chassis
to eliminate interference between them and to achieve ideal
dual mono structure.
Most of MC cartridges available in the current market are compatible
with the standard version. For those cartridges with an extremely
small output level and/or high internal impedance, we have the
high-gain version. The standard version has 75dB and the high-gain
version has 90dB of gain.
Since it is a current amplification device
with 0 ohm input impedance, output level is determined by the
output amperage of the cartridge (output voltage divided by internal
