Audion Premier Moving Magnet phono stage is built on a quality substrate pcb (printed circuit board) as with all our amps they are hand built. The chassis is black powder coated aluminum as is the transformer cover. The top plate and badge are mirror finished stainless steel.
The soundstage is believeably big, and really it is up to the recordings capabilities to shine through. Musicians are convincingly placed. Noise level is pitch black. Roll off in both directions is seamless. Resolution is astounding, with absolutely convincing depth even at very low listening levels. It does not beautify bad records, but it gives sparkle to great recordings, and preserves tonality, rhythm and sense of space. We refer to this as being neutral, but not sterile or warm or tubelike.
