The Dual is our most compact phono stage. Its space-saving dimensions belie its advanced features. A MC (moving coil) design, the Dual benefits from an innovative A/D convertor with a USB output, to enable the direct transfer of vinyl to computers, enabling high-quality digital archive copies to made from vinyl collections.

The Dual has been designed to provide the high level of boost amplification and frequency- shaping necessary to match the low-level output from moving coil cartridges. With a compact footprint, the Dual is easy to integrate into audio existing systems and is highly flexible too: it features selectable input impedance and gain options to allow perfect cartridge-matching and exploit the full potential of vinyl.

Our advanced circuitry gives superior performance and applies the appropriate RIAA equalisation to maximise sound quality. Our inclusion of a Rausch slope filter helps to remove rumble from the low-frequency spectrum and improve the listening experience.

Further features include an optical TOSLink output which provides a useful digital monitor for playback of recorded material stored on the computer via an external DAC. This feature enables a true representation of the recording to be enjoyed and to overcome any limitations of the on-board sound hardware within the computer.
