We have loved Ron Sutherland’s phono preamps for years, he’s a master at extracting every molecule of music from analog systems and making great sound. His recently released KC Vibe phono preamp (only $895) benefits hugely from this pedigree, offering build-quality, flexibility and sonic capabilities comparable to preamps 2-3x more expensive. For those who lusted after the legendary battery-powered PH3D but couldn’t wrap their brains around periodically swapping D-Cells, the Insight phono preamp is an AC powered variant which sacrifices nothing to the original. You’ve heard of Mono Block amplifiers? Sutherland makes Phono Blocks, a reference pair of matched mono phono preamps! Lastly, we would be hugely remiss not to mention the exceedingly cool N1 Preamp; a stereo preamp with phono stage and Nixie tubes for the display! If you’ve never seen these, they are essentially vacuum tubes which display numbers! Used instead of LEDs or other forms of display they give the N1’s faceplate an incredibly warm, rich and highly legible display which makes the N1 a unique centerpiece for any audio system.
