Avid HiFi Pulsare II PhonoStage
For over a decade our phono stages have a set new benchmark for musical enjoyment. Preceding our own designs, we tried many suitors and whilst offering excellent technical performance, they lacked realism. We call it shear power, that feeling of presence, solidity and drive that separates just listening to HiFi with that feeling of being in the presence of the performance.
"The AVID Pulsare II is the best phono amp that I have ever heard" - Paul Rigby
Engineering turntables that arouse the sensation of musical reality with exceptionally low background noise, we spawned Pulsare, a phono stage that embodied these qualities, winning immediate critical acclaim.
Pulsare II elevated performance to new heights. Fully balanced with negligible distortion and devoid of noise. With prodigious headroom, this is pure electronic artistry.
"This is an impressive product indeed" - Steve Harris
Employing extremely high-specification components, every attribute is of the highest order. Gain, Resistance, and Capacitance are all easily adjustable, even during operation and signal integrity is never compromised by using a bank of relays for every adjustment.
Cartridges can operate fully balanced through a dedicated input for the best possible sound quality. Mono and Subsonic filters optimize playback, assuring you of obtaining the ultimate listening experience.
