ELAC Alchemy Series PPA-2 MM/MC Phonostage

The Alchemy PPA-2 is a full-featured phono preamp that uses all analog, discrete FET gain, and EQ stages to transform microscopic grooves in vinyl into stunningly lifelike music. The PPA-2 can be tailored to specific cartridge requirements, with switchable gain for each channel, MC cartridge loading, and stereo or mono operation. A selection of RCA or XLR inputs and outputs adds even more flexibility to the most versatile phono preamp in its class.
