Blue Horizon Profono Phono Preamplifier

Profono is designed and built to be a genuinely high-end phono preamplifier delivered at a highly competitive price point, able to compete with – and even outperform – models at twice the cost.

Compact in size and sturdily built, Profono sports a cleverly designed all-aluminium case, with individual corner extrusions holding the aluminium panels together, ensuring a tight, rigid and reliable construction that is quick and efficient to manufacture. Casework of such quality is rare at this price point and serves to protect the internal components, reject sonically deleterious RFI and keep the unit solidly in position when heavy cables are connected.

So often, vinyl lovers spend serious amounts of money on turntable, arm and cartridge combinations, but don’t realise that the performance of their record player is severely restricted by an average-sounding phono stage. That’s where Profono steps in – the perfect solution for amps that don’t have a built-in phono stage, the ideal upgrade for those that do, and a great step-up option to replace budget phono preamps that simply don’t cut the sonic mustard.

To minimise noise and distortion, the Profono’s power supply unit (PSU) is housed separately and connected via a detachable cable. PSU upgrade options will be available at a later date, for those who wish to attain an even higher level of performance. A switch on the Profono’s rear panel gives three settings for cartridge gain: moving coil low (50dB), moving coil high (61dB) and moving magnet (41dB). Offering two moving coil gain settings.
