iFi audio ZEN Phono - Ultra- affordable phono stage with MM/MC + super-silent Noise Floor

LPs + ZEN = Magical combo.
You??e spent years building your dream LP collection. We know because we have done the same!
The ZEN Phono is a wonderful enhancement to your vinyl setup. It will max out every MM/MC cartridge.
Choc full of AMR/iFi trickle-down vinyl technology, it will have you poring over your LPs into the wee, small hours.

Spec?? to make you smile
Unlike any other entry-level phono stage. The ZEN Phono has:
- MM/MC from 36dB >72dB gain. Super-silent noise floor -151dBV
- Precise RIAA with Balanced output, performance comparable to +$1k phono stages
- AI sub-sonic filter. Addresses warp without eliminating bass or causing phase issues

Gain settings: MC (v lo)@72dB (+/- 1dB), MC (lo) 60dB (+/- 1dB), MC (hi) 48dB (+/- 1dB), MM 36dB (+/- 1dB)
AI Sub-sonic filter: Remedies only the 'warp' in LPs, No negative impact to bass response
Max Output Voltage (RMS): 20v RMS bal output into 100k (< 1% THD & N), 13.5V RMS bal output into 600R (< 1% THD & N)
Output Impedance: BAL 200 Ohm resistive, SE 100 Ohm resistive
Input impedance: MM: 47K Ohms (Load: 110pF). MC High: 47K Ohms, MC Low: 1K Ohms, MC V Low: 110 Ohms
