The Stateline Phono 2 preamplifier is a small footprint Phono Preamp. The main circuit board and components used here are non-compromise.
The Stateline Phono 2 preamplifier features as follows:
Discrete matched FET Input stage.
Discrete single ended Mos-FET output stage.
All is fully working in Class A.
RIAA equalization is done passively for the high frequencies, and actively for the low frequencies.
Both RIAA networks are completely separated from each other’s.
External raw power supply, so that no transformers which might create the smallest hum are located in the main housing. Internally a special discretely built ultra low noise voltage regulator with LEDs as a voltage reference does an excellent job.
Extremely short signal path due to using double sided PCBs with SMD parts on one side and through-hole devices on the other.
Genuine Siemens low tolerance KP foil capacitors, plus two big Siemens MKPs in the power supply. No use of any ceramic capacitors in the entire circuitery.
The complete board including all components is coated with Steinmusic Maestro Lacquer to optimize mechanical resonances.
MM: Input capacity switchable 0pF, 82pF, 150pF or 232 pF
MC: Input impedance switchable between 25R and 47K in 50 steps
Amplification 60dB MC, 40dB MM
Exellent performance with SteinMusic Aventurin 6, or any other MM or MC cartridge due to sophisticated adjustability..
Stateline Phono 2 Signature
The Stateline Phono 2 Signature version is additionally equipped with a special power supply upgrade board. This board only carries the best foil capacitors, vacuum capacitors and numerous oscon capacitors in a very balanced configuration which perfectly suits the Stateline Phono 2 amplifier.
The Signature version in combination with the optional Stateline Phono 2 Power power supply so has qualities which cannot others be described as State of the Art.
Following the outline of the Stateline Phono 2, the entire circuit board of the Signature version including all components is coated with Steinmusic Maestro Lacquer to optimize mechanical resonances. Additionally two SteinMusic InLine Silver are implemented into the power supply to break off EMF-effects and thus significantly reduce magnetic distortions.
