Phono gain stages are rather un-glamorous. But that's the point. This one-trick pony simply accepts analog audio from your turntable's cartridge and amplifies it to a level that your main preamplifier can understand. What makes the BP-2 so special is that it can take such a minuscule signal--2mV or so and amplify it with so little distortion and so little added noise. When switched into MC mode, zero additional noise is added. The transformers are wound so precisely, that they are virtually distorted making the most of your priceless MC cartridge. This is true analog bliss.


  • MM Mode Applies 41dB of gain from your moving magnet phono cartridge or high-output MC cartridge
  • Switch into MC mode to engage top-quality step-up transformers to apply additional 20 or 30dB of gain.
