Functions required for a control amplifier (pre-amplifier) are to select a signal source, to adjust the volume, and to transmit a music signal for a power amplifier. Phasemation’s CA-1000 is an outstanding control pre-amplifier consisting of 3 units with high performance and high quality of sound due to adopting the mono structure consisting of separated two units, left and right, and the circuit using a tube for the signal processing section. The most important section of the audio playing equipment is the volume adjustment adopting a hybrid attenuator (Phasemation’s own patent technology) and the relay switching method (not using a rotary switch) utilizing the control technology acquired through extensive measurements and testing. As a result, you can feel the overwhelming liveliness, the re-creation of vista-ed stage, and a rich musicality to the point you are no longer aware of the presence of the amplifier.
On the occasion of launching MC phono pick up cartridge PP-1000, CS-1000, based on our existing model CS-1 and attained further lighter body and improved acoustic quality, is launched. Without losing the rigidity, weight of CS-1000 has been successfully trimmed by about 14% compared with CS-1. CS-1000 has been changed to the figure with beautility. CS-1000 is manufactured with precise processing from duralumin without using any molds in order to keep the accuracy and get rid of the vibration other than generation of electric power of the cartridge. The aforementioned processed material has DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) treatment※ and strengthened its surface hardness and gained high rigidity. The shell construction with the superior vibration dumping characteristics is successfully materialized. CS-1000 brings out the performance of cartridges thoroughly. *DLC(Diamond Like Carbon)

A pair of highly sophisticated phono monoblocks (2 units), all discreet, all-stage symmetric non-feedback circuit that draws out the music’s reality and the artist’s passion The design brief for the EA 550 was to eliminate the smallest discrepancies by utilising a pair of semiconductor phono amplifiers. In addition, the built-in MC transformer was newly designed incorporating a special split winding structure that uses a high pure copper wire PC-TripleC as the secondary winding material.
High Quality Headphone Amplifier 'Expressing Freshness of Music' This amplifier is compatible with balanced headphones due to the dual monaural construction. Unprecedented natural lateralization is provided by the recently-developed dump controller.
