Clearaudio Balance Reference Phono

The new balance reference phono was developed especially for the phono enthusiast, featuring completely independent phono inputs for connecting moving coil and moving magnet phono cartridges. It provides total freedom in selecting balanced (XLR) or single-ended (RCA) inputs and outputs with the total flexibility of adjusting the input impedance for most cartridges. The sophisticated volume and input circuitry are accessible with the supplied remote control. The high-performance design provides 2 headphone connections. A dual-mono power supply housed in its own dedicated aluminium chassis assures the highest sound quality. The balance reference phono is truly a world-class phono stage for analog aficionados.
