Lehmann Black Cube MM/MC Phonostage

The Black Cube is a phono stage developed for the analogue oriented music lover. The small box can be placed nearby the turntable. A wide variety of pickup cartridges can be connected ranging from mc to high-output mm. The Black Cube satisfies even very high demands to analogue audiophile music reproduction. The quality of the sophisticated electronic circuit equals the outstanding sonic performance at a price you would never expect when you hear the Black Cube in a blind test comparison.

The passive RIAA-network of the Black Cube is placed between two linear amplifier stages - highly buffered special amplifiers by Analogue Devices. This minimises nonlinearities caused by phase errors that would occur in active filters. The use of low tolerance WIMA capacitors results in a very stable sonic impression with a fast attack response, delicate tonal balance and realistic soundstage information

The external regulated power supply of the Black Cube can be placed up to 2m away from the audio section. The cable between power supply and an audio section is shielded to keep rfi away from the near noiseless and highly stable supply voltages. This effect is even enhanced by additional supply voltage filtering on the double-sided audio PCB. High-End analogue music reproduction is affordable now since the Black Cube has hit the market!
