Edwards Audio Apprentice MM MkII | Phono Preamp
Edwards Audio Apprentice MM MkII Phono Preamp Details :
The Edwards Audio Apprentice MM Mk2 is a MM phono preamp, derived from the popular Edwards Audio MM1 and uses a similar circuit topology with passive equalization of treble and active bass.
Exceptionally at this price level, it uses a two-stage amplifier to dampen the equalization network and ensure a low output impedance.
However, it is configured for use with a DC switching power supply. This saved money at the same time as the use of a double U steel construction, eliminating the need for costly extrusion. It is complemented by an elegant 3mm black acrylic front panel.
As for the sound performance, the almost silent signal-to-noise ratio and its 42 dB gain, the Apprentice MM will not leave you indifferent, unlike most of the preamps we've listened to. its performance is exceptional quality-price, in fact a real audiophile case.
