CLEARAUDIO BASIC PLUS

“The Basic Plus is everything a modestly priced phonostage should be.” – The Absolute Sound Editors Choice Awards, 2013

 “If you are in need of a phono stage that can handle most anything you throw at it, don’t want something overly fussy and want to listen to the music that can be extracted from your vinyl and not listen to the extractor, then seek out the Clearaudio Basic Plus…” – Gary Lea, Dagogo, January 2010

About

The Basic Plus phono stage is a 2 chassis design with enough gain to drive both MM and MC phono cartridges. A single button switches between moving coil and moving magnet functionality. Due to its compact size, the signal path lengths are extremely short, for pure, noise-free music reproduction. The layout of the circuitry is optimized for excellent  channel separation. The audio circuit board is encased in a solid, resonance-free CNC-machined aluminum chassis, providing excellent protection from unwanted vibration and resonance and features high-quality gold-plated input and output RCA jacks. A dedicated power supply, housed it a separate CNC-machined aluminum chassis,  isolates the audio circuit for best performance.
