Emia Phono Stage - Phono -

(By Emia)

 It's an unassuming two box solutions...very steampunk looking.  The sound is spacious and dynamic.  Really grand.  With a pair of Emia's SUTs it's startlingly good and stands up to some cost no object designs.  Here is some more acute information from Emia.

heavy... tube rectified... choke input... single ended... direct coupled for high resolution... and what we feel is a very novel method of implementing the RIAA equalization... it removes the giant series resistor that is always a dynamics killer... and of course no feedback... the official blurb is:

The Emia phono is a tube based medium gain MM phono stage that uses a pentode input tube directly coupled to a triode output tube with shunt RIAA correction and zero feedback. This phono allows a wide range of tube types to be used without altering the RIAA characteristics. By simply rolling in these different tubes, the sonic signature of the preamplifier can be adjusted to taste. External plugs allow easy access to nearly infinite adjustment of loading for MM cartridges or external MC step up transformers.
