The Nano Phonostage isn’t ruffled by anything. External interferences are no longer an issue with this fine piece of engineering. Its meticulously selected SMD components are assembled by hand in Erlangen and tested several times. The reward of these efforts is a signal to noise ratio of up to 84 decibels. The input impedance is set using plug-in links, so there is no loss of quality when using different moving magnet and moving coil cartridges. The Nano Phono Headphone additionally contains a powerful headphone amplifier within the solid aluminium housing for private listening at the highest fidelity.
The printed circuit board on the Clearaudio Nano Headphone Phonostage is embedded within a solid CNC-machined aluminium block, which forms a resonance-free chassis. The latest sophisticated surface-mount technology is used in conjunction with precision electronic components, such as Burr-Brown (Texas Instruments) integrated circuits, and extremely short signal paths leading the Clearaudio Nano Headphone Phonostage to produce pure, hum and noise-free music reproduction. The fully dual-mono design features separate left and right switches for input loading, gain control and choice of MM or MC sensitivity, allowing the Clearaudio Nano Headphone Phonostage to extract the best results from virtually any cartridge.
