Enjoy the unique warmth of vinyl and all the depths of fine analogue detail on offer with this high quality moving magnet phono preamp.

  • There's something uniquely pleasurable about listening to vinyl, something that digital media can't reproduce in quite the same way. However most hi-fi amplifiers won't let you plug in a turntable directly. You need to connect via a phono stage (also known as a phono preamp) to make the very small signal from the turntable powerful enough for your main amp to work with. But it's very easy to add noise at this stage, which is why we've designed the CP1 using premium components chosen for exceptional accuracy, amplifying the signal without distorting it.
