Audiophile + Volume

Audiophile+ with Volume Control: Audiophile + Phono Stage with Passive LDR Volume Control

This unit couples our excellent Audiophile+ phono stage with a Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) volume control resulting in a complete phono preamplifier in a box, ready to be connected to your power amplifier or active speakers.

The standard unit has full RIAA equalisation with support for either moving magnet, high output moving coil or low output moving coil cartridges (cartridge type should be stated with order). This phono stage continues our tradition of putting sound quality first, it’s a very high quality analogue preamp, designed and laid out to maximise audio performance and utilising quality components throughout.

The  LDR volume control incorporated within this preamplifier has no mechanical resistive wipers in the audio path instead it uses LEDs, within each LDR package, to control the volume level.  This ensures that the audio signal is pure and unadulterated yet the LDRs still allow fine control of the signal level via the front panel volume control.

Building on our widely acclaimed phono stage, this preamplifier is designed to give you exceptional sound quality and flexibility at a price that just can’t be matched!

ALL Angle Audio equipment is designed and built in the UK.
