Pathos InTheGroove Phono Preamplifier

Beating the quality and integrity of the original InTheGroove phono pre-amp and for the same price-point was no easy task for Pathos. Designed to take both MC and MM phono cartridges, the second incarnation of InTheGroove uses superior materials and the highly acclaimed Pathos design philosophy in order to offer a heightened level of refinement and transparency over the older version

This state-of-the-art phono preamp utilises entirely independent left and right channel operation, powered by high-quality batteries in order to provide the cleanest, most stable power possible. The output from the pick- up on InTheGroove is low, so the risk of picking up unwanted sounds and resonances is higher. Using batteries ensures that the risk of potential interference from the power supply is minimalised, the power is phenomenally stable.
