Clearaudio Smart Phono V2
The great thing about the advances in analog music reproduction is that you can gain an astonishing level of performance for very little money. The Clearaudio Smart Phono is a classic example. It's built-in a solid silver brushed aluminum chassis and offers the flexibility of MC and MM cartridge use and is dead quiet in operation.
The Smart Phono V2 offers both MM and MC capabilities, with enough gain to drive the lowest output cartridges. It is a very simple unit to operate with a single button switching between MM and MC functionality. Another nice feature is a dedicated power transformer, which resides outside the actual phonostage to keep the audio circuit as quiet as possible.
The layout of the circuitry is optimized for high channel separation, complementing Clearaudio phono cartridges.
