Many hours of research and development from the Pathos engineers have gone into producing a phono stage superior to the original and highly respected InTheGroove. The MkII version is a high performance passive phono preamplifier designed for both MC and MM phono cartridges.The superb sound follows the Pathos tradition of superior soundstaging, realism, transparency, dynamics and musicality.
The In The Groove MKII is a state of the art phono-amplifier that features completely independent left and right channel operation. It is battery powered to provide as clean and stable power as possible. By using batteries in the power supply the risk of interference is minimised – the power is also extremely stable and thereby avoids the turbulence that often appears on the mains network.
Other factors that result in the impressive performance are high quality audiophile components and balanced mode operation. Balanced layout is something rarely seen in phono amplifiers – but it has the advantages of lower noise and therefore a cleaner signal. Gain is user selectable with an additional 20dB. The built in battery charger makes it easy to use and set-up. After a period with no signal it will switch off automatically and recharge if the batteries are low, which guarantees the longest life for the batteries.
The variety of adjustments gives you a very user-friendly high-end phono stage that will ensure the greatest enjoyment from your vinyl collection!
