Musical Fidelity V90-LPS MM/MC Phono Preamp
There are many phono stages that are far more expensive and make extraordinary claims for their performance. In contrast, the modest V90-LPS just gets on with the job of doing everything you could reasonably expect from a phono stage.
Distortion & Noise - All But InaudibleThe V90-LPS has extremely accurate RIAA correction and that extends up to 80 kHz and beyond. That may sound extreme, but there is a good deal of information above 20 kHz that needs correction. If it isn’t corrected, it will show itself as ringing and overshoot. The V90-LPS’s distortion is very low. Noise ratio is extremely low and all but inaudible. Overload margin is easily adequate for any current cartridge. All in all, the V90-LPS accomplishes everything necessary for a phono stage.
Switchable MM / MC input Extremely accurate RIAA extending out to at least 60kHz Very low noise (virtually inaudible) Very low distortion Excellent overload margin Excellent channel separation Beautiful, considered build quality
