LP + ZEN Phono = Magical Combo
You’ve been building the LP collection of your dreams.We know that iFi’s developers have done the same.
The ZEN Phono makes your record system sound quality. Maximize the performance of all MM/MC cartridges
Embedded with trickle-down technology from AMR’s high-end products, the ZEN Phono takes you to the music world with just a little playback.
Unlike other entry-level phono stages, the ZEN Phono has the following specs:
36dB to 72dB gain settings for MM/MC, Ultra Low Noise Floor – Accurate RIAA curve with balanced output – 151dBV performance AI subsonic filter comparable to 1000 dollar class equipment: Supports records warping without cutting low frequency or causing phase issues
The best phono stage on the market also creates power from a home power outlet to amplify audio signal from cartridge without adding noise to the cartridge.
ZEN Phono does the same, but it doesn’t do the traditional way.It produces power at 1.2MHz switching frequency.It is about 20,000 times more than household power supply.In this circuit, the 10μF filter capacity is equivalent to 200,000μF in a low frequency range.Exceptional Filtration Performance.The power circuit is located on the circuit board dedicated “island” to ensure no contamination of the audio signal.Super clean +/-12V DC.
EQ circuitry uses multiple TDK C0G capacitors in parallel.This is for maximum stability and minimal distortion.
By using the most excellent tolerance capacitors in parallel, the tolerance is increased exponentially with the number of parallels.For best performance, ZEN Phono adopts such complex circuits.
The RIAA deviation due to this circuit is +/- 0.15dB which is the same as what the capacitor is matched by hand.
Superior Circuit With Excellent Parts
The ZEN Phono consists of a high-end aircraft AMR PH-77, a trickledown circuit from the top micro iPhono 3 BL and an extremely superior audio grade parts that support them.
AI Subsonic Filter
Intelligent subsonic filters are inspired by the micro iPhone series and are exclusive to iFi.
Ordinary subsonic filters also remove bass with “Rumble Warp” and cause phase issues.
iFi’s proprietary AI Subsonic Filter removes only “Rumble”
