In the heart of Audio Note (UK), they have always believed that true high-end audio goes beyond mere technical specifications. It’s about the intricate balance between engineering precision and the art of experiencing music. Today, we’d like to introduce you to the Audio Note (UK) M2 RIAA Phono Stage, a testament to this philosophy and a sterling example of their commitment to unparalleled sonic performance.
The M2 RIAA Phono Stage aligns with Audio Note (UK)’s Level 2 criteria, indicative of their unwavering dedication to superior quality. When crafting this phono stage, their objective was clear: to provide an audio component that captures the soul and essence of music, letting listeners feel every nuance and subtlety.
One of the defining design philosophies behind this phono stage is the absence of negative feedback. Audio Note (UK) believes that music, in its most authentic form, should be free from phase shifts and other artificial constraints. By refraining from using negative feedback, the M2 RIAA Phono Stage delivers music in its most natural tonality, retaining its harmonic richness and balance.
Moreover, the M2 RIAA is a pure Class A, Single Ended phono stage. This ensures a linear operation characterized by minimal distortion and noise. The result? An organic sound that transports you, the listener, to a live concert setting.
In the heart of the M2 RIAA are the ECC83 (12AX7) and 6DJ8 (ECC88) tubes, components they’ve chosen for their signature sonic attributes. The ECC83 is renowned for its role in preamp circuits, delivering a warm and lush sound. The 6DJ8, on the other hand, is hailed for its pristine, low-noise capabilities. Together, they form a harmonious pairing, ensuring that your vinyl’s grooves are translated into a captivating auditory experience.
But what truly sets the M2 RIAA Phono Stage apart is its valve rectified power supply, employing the 6X5 rectifier tube and the ECL82 (6BM8) as a voltage regulator. Traditionalists will appreciate this touch. Valve rectification provides an undeniably smoother and more musical power delivery, something that solid-state alternatives struggle to replicate.
The M2 RIAA Phono Stage is more than an audio component; it’s a journey into the depths of music. Each note, each chord, and each vocal is presented with a lifelike authenticity that can only come from decades of passion and craftsmanship.
