Musical Surroundings Nova II Details

Musical Surroundings Nova II Silver Phono Preamplifier: “A super value is now a superduper one”

  • New casework with silver or black anodized finish
  • Improved resonance isolation for main board and battery power supply
  • 5dB better signal-to-noise ratio
  • Super matched transistor pair input for improved linearity and sonic performance
  • Discrete, dual-mono circuitry
“The already superb performance of the Nova II’s predecessor has been made even better in the new model, which means that a super value is now a superduper one. I cannot recommend it enthusiastically enough.”
    – Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound

Built in California, the Musical Surroundings Nova II battery-powered phono stage delivers incredible flexibility and performance. The Nova II replaces the popular Nova Phonomena, a Michael Yee-designed phono preamp that has defined Q.P.R., or Quality/Price Ratio for the past 15 years.

The Nova II shares the improved chassis design of Musical Surroundings’ MYDAC II, plus dual-mono, discrete circuitry with extensive gain and loading flexibility, to offer the best sound in its price range. Like the Phonomena II and SuperNova II, the Nova II has rear panel accessible switches for easily accessible and highly flexible gain and loading adjustment. It employs two rechargeable internal NiMH dual-mono battery packs with Smart Sensing auto recharge feature. All AC and charging circuits automatically disconnect when listening in battery mode. The Nova II features enhanced casework design and upgraded internal components.

The Musical Surroundings Nova II is a complete phonograph preamplifier with RIAA equalization that amplifies the output signal of a phono cartridge, either moving coil or moving magnet, up to a nominal “line level.” The Nova II may be used with a receiver or an integrated amplifier. If you use separate components, a line level control unit (preamp) is required before the power amp, since there is no independent volume control for the Nova II. The Nova II’s power supply is internal and connects to the wall with the supplied wall mount transformer.
