Listening to the Miles Davis Quintet’s version of In Your Own Sweet Way- on display was the tactile, effortless, and supreme command and singular sound which Miles posses on the muted trumpet. Then Coltrane comes in with his reedy tenor exhaling a rich, dense , colorful sound anchored inside a wide deep soundstage. The Classic phono puts you in the room with the musicians ... Beautiful!

WOW!

it is so exciting, not broken-in yet and I am all ready blown away. First the bass response goes so deep that you feel your are in the concert hall with an impact in the percussions that is beyond what I did know about my Vinyl. The resolution is unlike anything I did hear before, it is very open with a sense of dimension that makes the music sound like music and not like an audio system.

"Wow, it's like a switch turned on around 10 hours! The resolution is incredible! Also, the timbre is just beautiful! Soundstage and dynamics also went up significantly. I wonder what it'll sound like after 100 hours.

Germany

The first hearing experiences honestly blow my mind"

    Product Information

    After many years of success and esteem, the Nagra VPS is replaced by the CLASSIC PHONO

    The VPS, itself inspired by the legendary Nagra PL-P, is a very respected phono stage.

    The VPS was the base we used and the obvious product to benchmark the new design.

    Design
    New generation Nagra custom made input transformers

    Full tube in Class A totalizing four triodes

    Featuring two inputs, one MC / MM and one MM

    Adjustable and customizable cartridge loading

    Selection of RIAA, TELDEC and COLUMBIA curves

    Accommodates mono cartridges

    Mono selector for mono records made with a stereo cutter

    Adjustable gain from 38 to 64 dB

    New built-in silent power supply, can be upgraded with a Classic PSU

    Inputs
    The MC input features a new generation of custom made Nagra transformer using the special magnetic core of the HD PREAMP.

    The gain selection on the front panel allows you to match the cartridge or the record very easily.

    For MC cartridges, gain of 54 or 64 dB, for MM, 8 or 48 dB.

    The various and numerous
    settings allow you to match your cartridge collection and the record very closely.

    Vacuum Tubes
    The CLASSIC PHONO exclusively uses tubes as active electronic components.

    2x E88CC/ 6922

    1x ECC81/B739

    1x ECC83/B759

    All the tubes are going through and individual selection by Nagra Laboratory.

    Sound and Impression
    The first notes strike with density and extension. The CLASSIC PHONO impresses immediately with its sheer quality. The linear phase response is clearly audible with a very faithful stereo and 3D image. The timbre of the instruments is extremely natural. After a few minutes of critical listening you simply want to rediscover your music collection and enjoy it!

    The CLASSIC PSU power supply, derived from the HD line, will take the CLASSIC PHONO to new heights.
