Musical Fidelity X-LPSv8 phonostage

Musical Fidelity X-LPSv8 phonostage

Sorry, This product is no longer available



The circuitry in the X-LPSv8 is similar to that used in expensive electronics. The RIAA is very accurate, the noise ratio is excellent and overload margins are good. Generally, its technical performance on both MM and MC is equal to some highly expensive stand-alone phono stages. Subjectives are personal, but we think that this phonostage will stand comparison with the best. It doesn't have a high price tag so many will not even look or listen to this little marvel. Forget the price and listen to the music.
