Thorens MM-002 Phono Preamp

Thorens is arguably one of the most well-known brands on the hifi market today, having developed countless award-winning turntable models to a superior standard for years. Thorens turntable models continue to build upon this extensive reputation for quality, and typically follow the same design philosophy of offering an authoritative turntable at an accessible price, beating rival models in its respective class. 

The MM-002 is a simple phono stage, designed for those with MM cartridges. It's beautifully compact in size and will complement all manner of turntables while performing best alongside a Thorens model. Because of its discrete structure, it can be placed next to the turntable or amplifier and sit unobtrusively. A low-noise and fuss-free way to get the most out of your turntable.
