Vacuum Tube Moving Magnet Phono Stage
Musica Bella 'Phono' is custom built to meet your personal preferences. It has been design to match the new 2019 "Custom" Linestage both sonically and esthetically. You have your choice of a high or low gain version. The high gain version uses a 6DJ8/6922 output tube while the low gain version uses the 12AU7. Both circuits use a 12AX7 input stage tube.
