Bringing the most out of a single-stage phono preamp for high-efficiency of performance, price, power consumption, and features.
Available to ship worldwide! RIAA accuracy to ±0.25dB, second order subsonic filtering, and mono switching. Uniquely weaving double-stage features around a single amplifier design, the SPARTAN 5 is a truly complete pint pot performer, representing a significant step-up from integrated and contemporary external phonostages.
Price including UK P&P: £150
High spec re-engineered double stage design that further builds upon the S10, realising exceptional performance with MM cartridges at an affordable price point.
Available to ship worldwide! RIAA accuracy to ±0.1dB, third order subsonic filtering, low frequency crossfeed, and mono switching. A new power supply circuit extends headroom past 10V RMS output, while increased gain splitting between the two amplifier stages further reduces distortion. £50 cheaper, despite improved performance!
Price including UK P&P: £330
A new look at preamplifier design, combining a high-quality headphone output with enough features for a complete system using active speakers.
Limited availability! Three high-impedance RCA inputs, fully balanced line outputs, and up to 700mW of output into high-impedance headphones. An original new active balanced volume control design, based on a precise industrial-spec potentiometer, provides continously variable gain over a wide range with very low noise and distortion.
Price including UK P&P: £450
Designed specifically for 78s and early LPs, this fully-featured mono phonostage transforms listening to old discs at a low price than any other.
Coming soon! Six equalisation curves for all eras, noise-filtering bandwidth switch, and 3rd order subsonic filtering. Using a highly efficient new circuit design, two amplifier stages realise 25dB of overload margin to handle the worst artefacts legacy pressings can throw at them. A must have product for seriously sublime sound from shellac.

Double-stage innovation extracts new detail out of MM cartridges while stopping low-frequency noise in its tracks.
DISCONTINUED Low-frequency crossfeed, RIAA accuracy to ±0.1dB, third order subsonic filtering, and mono switching. The circuit design realises wonderfully low distortion by reducing frequency compensation on the input amplifier and carefully sharing the gain between two stages, resulting in the best performance at three figures and beyond.
Price including UK P&P: £380
Due to demand for different features at competitive price points, further SPARTAN products are currently in development for release in early 2024.
The SPARTAN 20 MM & MC phonostage will feature the same high-performance MM signal path as the SPARTAN 15 design, plus an MC head amplifier that realises a 77dB signal-to-noise ratio with a 500µV cartridge. Separate inputs for MM and MC, switchable via the front panel, make a two-turntable setup a breeze, while dual parallel line outputs give the option of adding a recorder for easy digitisation during listening. Low frequency crossfeed gains an extra setting too, with and 100Hz and 200Hz options.
