The Limetree PHONO is our statement for all vinyl friends. A high-grade preamp for your pickup cartridge.
Using the latest technologies and parts we reanimated a circuit design from the tube amp era. The result is absolutely worth listening to!
Look forward to an exceptional sound experience!
The Limetree PHONO has two discrete input stages which are perfectly tuned for the respective pickupt type. This ensures maximum sound quality with MM and MC cartridges.
Installation is as easy as 1-2-3: simply plug in and you’re ready to go. Only for MC there is a variable setting of the input impedance between 100 and 800 ohms.
The measured values of the PHONO are exceptionally good all the way. Noise and distortion figures are close to the resolution limit.
To put it briefly: sound quality and technology of this amplifier play in a class of their own. Rediscover your LPs!
