Stellar Phono-Stage Pre-Amplifer
PS Audio’s first product was a phono preamplifier that took th.e Hi-Fi world by storm in 1975. Its designers, Paul and Stan, laboured for years over every circuit detail with one goal in mind—making musical magic. Stellar Phono shares that same ethos.
Based on a unique all discrete FET topology, Stellar Phono stands out in a crowded field of conventional IC designs. Its sound is rich, warm and enticing as only vinyl through hand-tuned class-A circuitry can be.
Stellar Phono is a triumph of performance and value that you’ll instantly recognise from that first needle drop, as music emerges from a velvet blackness, filling the room as if there were no speakers.
