DetailsThe Diablo is a high performance, audiophile grade phono amplifier, designed for ultimate transparency and realism. It will maximise the performance of a wide range of phono cartridges from ultra-low output Moving Coils to high output Moving Magnet types. User adjustable with a set of four DIP switches on the underside of the unit. These switches allow for adjustment of cartridge loading and gain setting. The circuitry is signal non-inverting and constructed using high performance, audio grade bipolar and JFET operational amplifiers from Analog Devices and Linear Technology. Metal oxide resistors and ultra low impedance capacitors throughout for lowest possible noise. The RIAA equalisation network is part passive and part active. The capacitors and resistors used in this stage are very close tolerance audiophile types. Four 'state of the art' ultra low impedance, low noise wide-band voltage regulator circuits are employed to power both channels and are largely responsible for the high sonic performance . The non-ferrous cabinetry is made of aluminium, a design that reduces Eddy current propagation that can affect sound reproduction dramatically. Three versions of power supply are available including a 'Never Connected' version.
