Vincent Audio PHO-701 Phono Preamp
Adjustable Loading For Optimal Perormance With Any CartVincent Audio’s two-chassis PHO-701 MM/MC phono preamp improves upon the best-selling PHO-700 with two great new features. First, it offers a USB output, allowing you to archive your vinyl tracks to your computer using easily available software you’ll find on the Web, including free Audacity software.The second brand new feature is the ability to fine-tune the PHO-701 to a wide range of phono cartridges via dip switches on the bottom. With these switches, you can easily adjust the input capacitance and input impedance.
Entirely Separate PSU Drops the Noise FloorThe PHO-701 puts its power supply in a completely separate chassis for pristine signal quality. It will reward you with an amazing vinyl experience. Separate cases for audio and power supply circuitry help isolate the signal chain from AC distortion and interference.The PHO-701 performs its RIAA correction with high precision for ultra-low distortion and uses the highest quality audiophile parts, inside and out. It has a single phono input, which can be switched to accommodate low-output MC cartridges or MM/high-output MC cartridges.

Great warmth and clarity
Great warmth and clarity. My first tube preamp. Nice flexibility with matching a low output MC cartridge. I had read of the warmth of vinyl, but never appreciated it until I got the Vincent PHO-701
Exceeded My Expectations
by Bart Watts
Somehow the PHO-701 makes my old Technics table sound surprisingly warm, musical, and very listenable. This pieces has exceeded my expectations!
