The Lehmanaudio Black Cube SE II with external PWX power supply comes with top notch technology that points towards high end quality.
The input stages used in this device can also be found in top notch mixing consoles or in well known professional microphone preamps. The entirely passive RIAA equalisation network is terminated with high precision foil capacitors to realise an artefact-free transport of micro-dynamics and room information. The switches for gain and load settings have gold plated connectors for reliable performance.
The maximum gain of the Black Cube SE II is high enough for even very low output MC cartridges. Cartridge adaption itself is totally flexible because gain and lading can be chosen independently from each other. To top this all off, there is a slot for a custom impedance resistor, so that even the most exotic MC cartridges can be loaded adequately without having to buy expensive impedance plugs. No soldering needed.
Because of the small outer dimensions, the Black Cube SE II audio section can be placed next to the turntable. This minimises sound quality loss due to cable length.
The cable between power supply and audio section is shielded and ensures flexible placement of audio section and PWX power supply. The cases of both the power supply and the audio section are made of non-magnetic aluminium; additionally equipped with a top cover coated with a special anti-resonance treatment for better suppression of microphonic effects.
A brand new feature that is built into the Black Cube SE II is the entirely passive bass filter, that is a great help when tailoring the lower corner frequency of the vinyl reproduction to personal needs.
