    Product Information

    Following on from our acclaimed PS1 phono stage which won 5 Globes in Hi Fi World (03/2008) for its excellent sound quality, we have pushed the boundaries of valve technology even further with our new PS3 model. To do this we have used all our expertise and experience to create a no expense spared phono stage which addresses all the weaknesses of more conventional designs but still retaining our All Valve philosophy. And amazing value!

    So whats special about the PS3?

    Special amplification needs a special power supply. We start with a large, oversized power transformer and a full wave valve EZ80 rectifier followed by two large chokes for ultra-smooth power. This is then regulated by a low resistance 5687 valve controlled by an ECC83 for the very accurate voltage necessary for exceptional purity and performance. The pre-amp unit uses the cascode effect of using two valves together in a special way to obtain high gain with low noise this gives exceptional definition and sound staging whilst keeping the vivid colour and warmth that our PS1 phono stage is famous for. With two inputs and a moving coil option using our own hand wound moving coil transformers. The output is handled by the venerable 6SN7. Introduced in 1941, probably the most luxurious sounding hi fi valve ever, with so many old and new version

    Main Features:
    • Better definition using Double Cascode circuit which has the delicious, liquid sound of triode valves, whilst solving many of the technical problems of high gain
    • Uses four of the excellent ECC88 valves
    • Uses the amazing 6SN7 as output valve, (probably the best sounding hi fi valve, ever!)
    • Specially developed All valve power supply
    • Smooth Valve rectified using EZ80
    • Valve regulated using ECC83 and 5687
    • Two high value chokes for ultra smooth DC power

    These are expensive and heavy, but we think the relaxed smooth sound is well worth the effort.
    • Two box construction for minimum noise
    • Our passive design uses no feedback
    • Our simple design uses audiophile components
    • We use hard wired point to point wiring with no printed circuit board
    • Only full sized components are used
    • Easily upgraded, e.g. Jensen capacitorsons to try if you so desire!
