Clearaudio Statement Phono Stage
The Statement Phono is at home at the absolute top – where the air is thin, but the sound quality reaches its maximum density. From the deepest bass to the highest treble, from the additional bass octave of an imperial grand piano to the piccolo flute of a full church organ and beyond, the Statement Phono presents sounds exactly as they are. It takes nothing away and does not add anything, but embodies the ideal of pure music reproduction.
Silver mica capacitors ensure that the signals are handled without loss. Only the most noise-free resistors and capacitors, carefully selected, are worthy to take their place on the circuit boards of this monumental twelve kilogram phonostage.
This phonostage does not compromise. But it does allow you to connect and control the volume of all major sources via two phono inputs and two additional analogue inputs. For power, an external battery power supply is used, so that interference from the mains electricity grid does not exist.
The Statement Phono embodies the ultimate truth of listening, and with its switchable input resistors and freely adjustable equalisation curves, addresses the needs of discerning analogue fans that want to extract the best sound from their records. This sound laboratory in miniature is unique and unmatched in the analogue world.
