Naim Stageline Phonostage
For many music lovers, nothing can replace the sound of vinyl to make them feel they have been transported to a live concert or recording venue. The Naim Stageline is a dedicated, stand alone RIAA phono stage that is configured at the factory to offer the correct input impedance and gain for both moving magnet (N) or moving coil (K) cartridges.
The delicate audio circuits are housed within a black alloy enclosure, which shields against electromagnetic interference, which could cause unwanted hum - this is the reason also that Naim have designed the Stageline to operate with a separate 24V DC power supply, to keep unwanted magnetic fields associated with mains transformers well away from the audio circuitry. Simply add any of the compatible Naim power supplies - NAPSC, Flatcap XS, Hi-Cap or Supercap, alternatively certain Naim pre-amplifiers and integraded amplifiers can power the Stageline from a DC socket on their rear panel.
Discrete electronic components are used on the heavy glass fibre printed circuit board to form the Stageline phono amplifiers - this gives better noise performance than integrated circuits, and allows Naim engineers to fine tune every aspect of performance.
High quality tantalum and electrolytic capacitors combine with low tolerance metal film resistors and transistors to form the gain blocks - the RIAA equalisation components are even more critically specified, using polystyrene capacitors and 0.1% tolerance metal film resistors for great accuracy of frequency response.
The rear panel of the Stageline is dedicated to a pair of gold placed phono sockets for connection to your tonearm cables, plus a grounding post to help eliminate unwanted hum. On the right hand side are the four pin DIN output socket and a five pin DIN power supply socket.
