Pathos InTheGroove MM / MC Phonostage
This solid-state phonostage features passive RIAA preamplification, an external PSU, and settings for impedance, capacitance, and gain
Completely developed in-house by Pathos in Italy, the In The Groove has a linear power supply in separate housing for the lowest possible noise floor. Impedance and capacitance can be set with knobs on the front panel, and a gain setting is available on the rear. The In The Groove offers balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA outputs.
