Musical Surroundings Phonomena II+ (Silver) Details
Musical Surroundings Phonomena II+ (Silver) Phono Preamplifier
- Improved chassis design
- Delivers discrete dual-mono signal paths
- Made in the USA
The Phonomena II+ is the successor in the affordable phono preamplifier series from Musical Surroundings, celebrating 15-years in the market. The Phonomena II+ features an improved chassis design, based on their more expensive Nova II, and is available in both black and silver finishes. Boasting a new circuit board layout, the Phonomena II+ delivers discrete dual-mono signal paths, affording the listener more vibrant and dynamic music reproduction with a “blacker” background.
Made in California, the Phonomena II+ was designed by Mike Yee, and features similar circuitry to the more expensive Nova II and SuperNova II phono stages. Rather than using “off-the-shelf” OP amps, its circuit board contains hundreds of discrete parts, allowing Yee to design a circuit from the ground up.
Thoughtful circuit layout, combined with carefully selected components provide for breakthrough performance in music reproduction, especially tonal and imaging integrity. Additionally, the Phonomena II+ includes user-friendly, and easily accessible rear-panel gain and loading switches, allowing for optimization of most phono cartridges, system characteristics, and listening needs.
Getting tonality and imaging right are perhaps the biggest improvement Musical Surroundings technology offers, but the Phonomena II+ has the added sense of that crucially important “life” and “space” - something so often missing from even very expensive equipment. What’s more, in a high-quality recording, there are myriad subtle timing clues that need to reach your ears intact. Musical Surroundings designs ensure that these small nuances are correctly reproduced and not obscured, further enhancing the natural quality of analog vinyl playback.
The Phonomena II+ is expertly made, inside and out. Its small footprint optimizes signal path integrity. The PII+ is proudly Made in the USA and provides phenomenal sound and flexibility at an affordable price.
