DetailsDiscover the details. Feel the difference. Our Thorens turntables are among the best in the world, and by using latest high fidelity technology they get the most out of your precious records. However, the signals generated by the pick-up system are so slight that they need to be extremely amplified. Unfortunately, most of today's amplifiers don't feature a dedicated phono input anymore. This nuisance is the reason why Thorens developed the phono stage TEP 302. It was our ambition to create an appliance that doesn't impair the exceptional playback qualities of our turntables but prepares the signals for the pre-amplifier. A true Class-A amplifier. We hand select especially low noise operation amplifiers, which are shielded and cooled using a custom-built copper plate. The circuitry underwent multiple layers of testing until we found the ideal sonic qualities. RIAA equalization is performed by high-performance operation amplifiers as well. A 15 Hz subsonic filter protects your speakers from damaging deflections and filters the occasional rumbling noise made by warped records. There is more to your record collection than you think!
