Chord Symphonic Moving Coil Phonostage
Chord's flagship phonostage offers balanced or unbalanced connections as well as gain and impedance settings and a rumble filter
The Symphonic is Chord's flagship MC phono stage, offering a range of advanced features over the entry-level Dual. The high-performance Symphonic uses Chord's latest high-frequency power supply technology to exploit vinyl’s full potential, along with many new key features, to bring the performance levels in line with the Choral range, home of the DAVE DAC/preamp.
The Symphonic offers a choice of input impedance and gain options as well as balanced and unbalanced input options to the cartridge, making it a highly flexible device for integrating high-quality turntables into Chord systems. The comprehensive settings options are all externally selectable, with selections signified internally with illuminating LEDs.
