"Flugelhorn" Variable EQ Phonostage
The Flugelhorn is a phonostage offering variable equalization, loading, gain, and polarity. This flexibility makes it unique in that it can operate with any MM or MC cartridge, and play back any record, whether modern stereo, or mono 33s and 78s of any known equalization. The circuitry is fully differential using discrete matched JFETs to implement gain and buffer stages without feedback, giving a fatigue-free sonic presentation with excellent timing and clarity.
"It carries the pacing and gets good insight into performers' technique and their nuance very nicely."
"It was sounding really good - easily on a par with (if not better) the low output MC stage on my Supratek pre (which I think uses jfets). I have a new mono 78 rpm cartridge that I'm going to be trying out soon and am looking forward to experimenting with the eq curves."
