Phono Preamplifier MM/MC

iFi Audio Zen Phono Préamplificateur Phono MM/MC

The iFi Audio Zen Phono is a small, powerful and affordable desktop phono preamplifier. The brand has particularly worked on noise reduction on this device which displays a background noise measured at 90/96dB (MM/MC).

It is also versatile since it is compatible with both MM (Moving Magnet) and MC (Moving Coil) cell boards from < 0.25mV to > 2mW. The Zen Phono also includes a balanced circuit and connectors, a gain control, or a sub-sonic filter.

Connectivity

The iFi Audio phono preamplifier offers a simple but effective connection. The device offers stereo RCA in and balanced 4.4mm jack and RCA out. A grounding terminal block is also present.

Regenerative power supply

High-end phono preamplifiers create their own power supply off the mains, like a main regenerator. This is the starting point for any good phono stage, since without it it would be difficult to amplify the signal and not add noise.

The Zen Phono uses this regenerative power supply concept to provide excellent audio performance. It creates a 1.2MHz power supply, i.e. 20,000 times the frequency delivered by your home electrical network. Thus, a 10µF filtering capacitor is equivalent to 200000µF at a lower frequency. The result: a large filtering capacity comparable to the LC filtering of tube amplifiers. The power supply is insulated against interference and outputs an extremely clean +/-12V DC signal.

RIAA EQ

The Zen Phono integrates a particularly efficient RIAA equalization circuit, using latest generation AOPs and TDK C0G capacitors in parallel. This design exponentially increases the tolerance of the RIAA equalizer to ±0.15dB.

AI Subsonic Filter

Classical sub-sonic filters suppress "buzzing" but also alter the reproduction of low frequencies. iFi Audio's AI Subsonic Filter, used since 2012 and therefore totally proven, only cancels this humming effect, without impacting the bass.

High quality components

To achieve such performances, iFi Audio integrates high-end components, specially selected and embedded in a smart and careful design. These include a low-distortion (0.00001%) OVA2637 AOP for a pure and rich reproduction, Panasonic ECPU capacitors, Texas Instruments low noise printed circuit boards, high stability C0G TDK ceramic capacitors or muRata low ESR multilayer capacitors.

À peine croyable
J’ai reçu et installé ce préamplificateur aujourd’hui, branché sur un platine technics sl1400 et une cellule Shure V15 type 3 et à la place d’un pré REGA d’entrée de gamme mais très dynamique. Premier disque, puis deuxième....La CLAQUE! Un son d’une grande douceur mais très précis, tous les registre sont bien présents et une spatialisation impressionnante avec un relief de fou. J’ai l’impression que les musiciens sont sortis des enceintes et sont à leur place dans la pièce. J’hésitais pour acheter un Lehman black cube mais alors là je n’ai aucun regret, j’attend avec impatience les prochaines écoutes et les essais avec mes autres cellules.
