There are five critical areas where a phono stage must achieve excellence:
- RIAA correction
- Correction above 20 kHz
- Low distortion
- Low noise
- Good overload margin
The V90-LPS has extremely accurate RIAA correction and that extends up to 80 kHz and beyond. That may sound extreme, but there is a good deal of information above 20 kHz that needs correction. If it isn’t corrected, it will show itself as ringing and overshoot. The distortion is very low. Noise ratio is extremely low and all but inaudible. Overload margin is easily adequate for any current cartridge.
All in all, the V90-LPS accomplishes everything necessary for a phono stage.
- Switchable MM / MC input
- Extremely accurate RIAA extending out to at least 60kHz
- Very low noise
- Very low distortion
- Excellent overload margin
- Excellent channel separation
- Beautiful, considered build quality
