The PLINIUS Jarrah was introduced 10 years ago. It is hard to believe that this venerable Phono Preamplifier has held its position as one of the top phono preamplifiers for all that time.
PLINIUS NEW KORU PHONO PREAMPLIFIER
Worldwide, interest in vinyl reproduction is holding remarkably steady, and with such a strong demand for phono -based systems, it is time for the PLINIUS Team to introduce a new dedicated phono preamplifier that takes advantage of a decade of Pliniusï¿½ technological innovations.
As evident from the picture, the Koru fits the aesthetic of the current line (the Ross Stevens inspired curved chassis), but, with a slight twist. The chassis is actually two -in -one, providing critical physical separation between the power supply and the amplification circuitry.
The power supply has received particular detailed attention and boasts a virtual battery with over 100,000 micro Farads of capacitance and sophisticated 2 -stage regulation. This attention to detail ensures the lowest impedance, and consequently extreme accuracy, of power to the amplification stages.
The amplification and equalization circuitry specific to the Koru Phono Preamplifier uses the latest components to ensure accuracy and longevity. Low -output moving coil cartridges, as well as higher -output moving magnet types, can be used. There is a full range of user adjustments available on the rear panel.
Both Single -Ended and Balanced output signals can be used. With passive high -frequency and active low - frequency equalization, the PLINIUS KORU Phono Preamplifier will maintain stability and finesse under the most demanding conditions.
Musically, the Koru is more revealing then the Jarrah and will move you closer to the music than ever before. Details and images seem to float, and depth and ambient retrieval is a revelation.
Available in both Black and Silver, the PLINIUS KORU Phono Preamplifier is set to become a classic and is more -than -will be worthy successor to the mighty Jarrah.
