EAR 834P Phono Preamp
When Tim de Paravicini a Does Job, He does it Properly...whether it is a custom studio installation, or an affordable phono pre amplifier like the EAR 834P range. With years of experience in design and manufacturing, nobody can come close to his unique point of view and life experiences he puts into all his designs. When first launched, it was the only valve phono stage you could buy with facilities for both good quality Moving Coil (MC) and Moving Magnet (MM) cartridges. In addition, for a small premium the unit could be purchased with an in-built volume control, allowing direct connection to a power-amplifier.
Variations of the 834PEAR-Yoshino 834P MM uses the same circuit architecture as its more expensive brothers, and shares in the same high quality sound through MM type cartridges. It is enclosed in a tough, black coloured, rigid metal case, and is fully “CE” type approved. EAR-Yoshino 834P Signature (MM/MC) builds on the classic EAR 834P specification, by adding a superb Moving Coil (MC) input stage, as well as the option of a high quality volume control. EAR-Yoshino 834P Deluxe (MM/MC). The top of the range, De-luxe comes in a stunning chrome and gold cabinet, and has extra attention and quality control. This unit will fit the most demanding of audiophile systems.
Ratings & Reviews
I just saved thousands of dollars by acquiring this superb little box to use along with my reference level high end line preamp and stereo power amp. I run the EAR in MM mode with an outboard SUT. Must b e heard to be believed! I'm a classical music lover and I can vouch for its performance with huge orchestral forces, massed choruses, and solo voices and instruments. Bravo Tim P.!
