Herron VTPH-2 Phono Stage
The Herron VTPH-2 Phono stage represents one of the best values in phono stages. It consists of an all-vacuum tube moving magnet section as well as a solid state moving coil gain stage and is configurable for anywhere from 43 to 64dB of gain. You can connect your cartridge as follows:
- Moving magnet cartridge connected to moving magnet input.
- Moving coil connected to moving coil input (hybrid, ss/vacuum tube signal path).
- Moving coil connected to external step-up transformer, connected to moving magnet input.
Cartridge loading is accomplished with external RCA connectors, so there are no switch contacts to degrade and you have an infinite number of loading choices.
Daedalus are our reference in box loudspeakers.
Tonally, they have a “BBC Sound”. They are fabricated from choice hardwoods in the Pacific Northwest by Lou Hinkley.
Lou comes from a pro sound background where high sensitivity, high power handling, and robust construction are not negotiable.
We drive our 97dB Ulysses speakers with our 7 watt NiWatt amplifiers, although they can just as easily receive the output from a 200 watt solid state amplifier.
