Description 

Refined Engineering and Fine-Tunable Settings Turn the Clearaudio Basic v2 MM/MC Phono Preamplifier Into an Audiophile All-Rounder: Includes Subsonic Filter and Precise RIAA Equalization

Disregard the name: Save for ease of use and minimalist design, there's nothing "basic" about the Clearaudio Basic v2 MM/MC phono preamplifier. Akin to its award-winning predecessor, Basic v2 touts refined engineering, advanced technology, and high-end components that allow it to convey analog signals with palpable warmth, detailed insight, and generous low- and high-frequency extension. Compatible with nearly every MM and MC phono cartridge on the market, this compact musical instrument gives you the choice whether or not to adjust the settings or leave them alone. Tweakers will find a range of fine-tuning options to dial Basic v2 into their system parameters. Listeners who just want to spin LPs can do so with absolute confidence, knowing Basic V2's all-rounder ability and audiophile pedigree has their back. An optional subsonic filter attenuates unwanted low-frequency noise while its RIAA equalization comes in at an ultra-accurate 0.1dB rate. Housed in a sleek, resonance-defeating aluminum case with just a single button on the upper surface (power), Basic v2 is as clean on the exterior as its sound is pouring out of your speakers.
