Lehmann Audio Black Cube Phono Preamp One of the Best Affordable Phono Stages Available With its great sound and versatility at a very reasonable price, it's no wonder the Lehmann Black Cube is so popular! In our listening tests at Music Direct, we have found the Black Cube to be very fast and detailed with the ability to project an extremely realistic three-dimensional soundstage. User-adjustable DIP switches offer flexible gain and loading options for almost all cartridges. "Get your hands on the Lehmann Audio Black Cube. I don't know of anything at or near the price, or maybe even twice the price, that sounds this good." - Michael Fremer, Stereophile The newly developed input stages used in the Black Cube can also be found in top notch mixing consoles or in well known professional microphone preamps. The entirely passive RIAA equalization network is realized with high precision MKP capacitors. All resistors are of the low noise metal film variety. The switches for gain and load settings have gold plated connectors. Because of the small outer dimensions the Black Cube can be placed next to your turntable. This minimizes loss due to cable lengths. The low noise regulated external power supply is connected with Neutrik XLR connectors to the dedicated DC power supply. Lehmann Audio always pay special attention to details: the cable between power supply and audio section is shielded. The cases of both the power supply and the audio section are made of nonmagnetic materials and the case of the audio section is even equipped with a top cover coated with a special anti-resonance treatment.

This is the best phone stage for the money. This is a great sounding stage period. The sound is detailed, without being clinical. There is great bass and treble with solid midrange. There is no hint of coloration or warmth. It is slightly forward but not unpleasant or unnatural. It's the difference between front of house and orchestra seating. If you are running a high quality phono cartridge i.e. Grado,Ortofon or others MM or MC HO this is fantastic. It works well with tube PA'S and preamps. This is just a great purchase for any person who loves vinyl and makes any table sound better. Highly recommended. ....
