Vincent - Audio Detail - Ming Da - Hanss
A turntable pre-amplifier (also known as a phono stage) is a device that takes the low signal output from a turntable and matches it to a level comparable to other hi-fi devices (such as CD players, tuners etc.) - known as a "line level" signal, allowing it to be connected to an amplifier via a standard line input. We stock a specially selected range of turntable pre amplifiers that we import exclusively and have available for both demonstration and home loan from Vincent - Audio Detail & Ming Da, so you are sure to find exactly something to match your requirements and budget with unbeatable value. If you need any further information on which pre-amplifier is right for you, please don't hesitate to contact us. Give us a ring on 01623844478 for professional and impartial advice.

The PHO-701s basic function is to provide a low-noise and loss-free transmission to the amplifier with accurate passive RIAA EQ. The PHO-701 complex additional power supply is a refined version of the supply already used in the award-winning PHO-8. We have deliberately omitted an AC adapter and specially designed and developed this power supply. It is connected using a 9-pin DIN cable to the phono section. The voltage is again specially prepared in the power supply so that ripple and hum of the electricity network play no role and the phono section is supplied with "clean power". The PHO-701 presents itself in the same dimensions as the power supply. The window which gives a view of the artactive12AU7 tube that can be easily and economically upgraded if required this is used as a dual triode, which takes direct influence on the sound giving a warmth and emotion that once experienced is hard to live without. High-quality components (e.g. from Nichicon or Wima) improve the parameters of noise ratio and amplification again. Of course, the PHO-701 is switchable via a switch on the rear panel for MM and MC cartridges and offers unmatched value in its class we advise if this is in or below your budget you give it serious consideration.

The new all new Nuvistor phono stage from Audio Detail, is a 6 Nuvistor design aimed at the user who loves the valve phono stage sound, but wishes for something slightly different, compact and offering a lower noise threshold, but with a fast and lively sound. Built by hand in Great Malvern, UK, the NV06 is all point to point wiring with the components mounted on a plated copper substrate.
We use paper in oil(PIO) and silver mica capacitors in the 2 stage passive filters.. With high quality German Audyn capacitors in the output.
What is a Nuvistor? Nuvistors were designed in the late 1950's with the aim of combating the rise of transistors within electronics..They are particularly good at VHF frequencies and are as small as possible(smaller than a thimble).. This means they are a lower noise valve, running at a lower voltage with lower internal capacitance than conventional valves.. This all results in a clean and detailed sound, therefore extracting so much more from your vinyl!
Every NV-06 has an external linear power supply, connected by over a metre of cable to minimise any potential PSU hum and magnetic affects..
We offer 2 versions, one for moving magnet (NV-06M) and one for moving coil (NV-06C)cartridges.
There is a Mono/Stereo button and gain control along with a standby switch on the front panel. The power supply houses the mains power on/off switch.
We can provide as an option separate inputs for those who wish to have both types of cartridge available for use.
The NV-06 is available with black or silver front panels

The MC-2006 Probably one of best valve “Phono Stages” available in the market today, the MC-2006 is suitable for both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, coupled by the highest quality British made input transformers. A separate low noise, choke filtered, Valve regulated power supply featuring twin valve rectifiers, extra smooth & silent twin choke smoothing contributes to low noise figures of ≥90dB for MM and ≥78dB for MC, as well as accurate RIAA equalisation. The MC-2006 makes use of the famous and reliable 12AT7 and 12AX7 double triodes, along with audiophile coupling capacitors, to keep the music as clean, uncoloured and original as practically possible.
The Front panel provides an input selector switch for MM and MC and output level control. The power is switched On/Off from the separate cable coupled power supply unit, specifically located remotely to help reduce noise levels to further enhance the listening experience from your turntable.
Together all these special design features contribute to a sensitivity of 1.0mV for Moving Magnet cartridges and 0.1mV sensitivity for Moving Coil cartridges.
