Now with improved power supply and new cosmetics, and the option of our new MC transformers.
It is well known that valves can sound much better than transistors, this is especially so with LP reproduction. Mainly because:
The massive overload of valves prevents distortion on highly modulated or worn LPs, therefore, reducing noise.
The “warm” sound of valves is well suited to the reproduction of analog music from LP.
The huge 40db RIAA difference between 20 Hz and 20 kHz is easier for valves than transistors.
Our “passive” design uses no “feedback”
Our simple design uses “hi fi” components.
We use “hand-wired” “point to point” wiring with no printed circuit board.

It is essential that these precious few microvolts of signal from the pickup cartridge go straight into the valve without any switches or coupling capacitors in the way to add sonic impurities.

The PS1 has become a “Reference Standard” for Hi Fi World.
Our original acclaimed PS1 design was updated and upgraded. Faithfull to the analog traditions of vinyl.

Moving Magnet or Moving Coil?
Moving Magnet types are generally cheaper, and have the advantage of high output.
Moving Coil pickups have low output, they are generally more expensive.
But most hi fi fans prefer MC pickups. The LP original “Master” is cut with a moving coil stylus.
MC pickups need special transformers to give extra gain. We fit our own custom design and made transformers. They have a very smooth detailed sound. These may be fitted at the time of order or after purchase.
The front panel switch then allows you to easily choose either MM or MC input.
