Tangential turntables, tone-arms and phono stage
Pre Audio are Polish designers and manufacturers of turntables with trolley and air bearing linear tracking tangential tone-arms.
Pre-Audio are a young company with fresh ideas and have been in business since 2009. The company is owned by Mr. Daniel Prendecki who is a young audio designer in his early thirties. He feels that tangential tone-arms have a theoretical ideal geometry of close to zero degree error in any groove, provide more accurate reading of the record, resulting in excellent stereo imaging, musicality and palpability of detail.
Prices of Pre-Audio products are extremely competitive. The quality of parts used and workmanship are hard to beat for the money. Design as well as finishing is eye catching.
The entire range includes six different TT models and the vacuum tube loaded phono stage which is company’s own unique design. Additionally, tone-arms from the basic models are available as OEM parts for those who wish to build something unique themselves. Both TT and tone-arms can be custom built and wide range of finishes is available.
Turntables, tone-arms, phono stage and accessories
Polish designer and artisan TT builder Pawel Zontek is a rising star of the analogue world. From the beginning his design was disruptive and different from anything else on the market. This is a reference product: Zontek has only one deck, one tone-arm and one phono stage in his portfolio. This is surely one of the very best analogue playback systems at any price and there is little need of further upgrades or improvements. With the designer’s adoration for the Art Deco period the customer not only gets a top quality playback system but also objects d’art.
It is always the case with Absolutor aka. Wojtek Korpacz that he won’t stop until find the solution which touches his soul and makes him happy. That’s how the incredible Absolutor Pre was created and that also applies to his phono stage. This unit, just like his original creation it took its name from, offers crystal clear sound which immerses the listener in the music to such extent that the listener could stop leaving his home, rather listening to the music without end. Recommended only for customers without addictive nature.
PS5 phono stage
An excellent phono pre-amplifier coming from the ever-innovative Encore 7 team, responsible for the revolutionary Windwood enclosure as-used in their stunning Eggshell amplifiers. Matching aesthetically and respecting the quality of their amplifiers. As with the Egg-shell amps performance quality of the phono stage makes it competitive even against products two or three times it’s price. Simply a best buy.
Tektron’s Attilio Caccamo is one of the best Italian artisan builders we came across. His unique understanding of tube gear design comes from the vast knowledge about the beginning of the valve era. In fact his main business used to be restoration of antique radios. Catania based craftsmen is the best person to ask about an unique build. In fact this single phono stage we have listed here, build as a mono or stereo unit is good enough to fight against much more expensive ones on the market, but those who are looking for something more sophisticated or complex just need to ask us. Here is also a paradise for customisation. One can get his unit as bespoke as it gets. Precious and hard to beat.
Phono preamp and Phono Equalizer
All equipment, hand built by Herr T. in his Aachen based manufacturing base has something in common. They are built to last and given his German origins, the quality of engineering and components means that these products will certainly outlast the buyer! More than that they are simply a tribute to the golden age of the German Klangfilm industry, which was one of the most impressive and creative ever. Talking phono stages, here we have a man who is possibly the most deeply devoted to vinyl playback than any individual I have met. His deep knowledge and understanding is as deep as a well. That’s why his top class line stage is simply an add-on to his three input phono stage. The RIAA curve is perfect.
Phono stages and step-ups
Jonathan Billington needs no further introduction in the UK. When it comes to transformers he is simply number one. His step ups are already famous, just as is his passive TVC preamp. Some people believe the best ever built. The range of active phono stages is the latest addition to the MFA portfolio. Everything is possible here, so don’t get fooled seeing just a few products listed, as this is just the beginning. Many bespoke options are available, just enquire.
