Avid Phono Stages
AVID is world-renowned for state-of-the-art turntables which create a visceral, emotional connection, drawing the listener deeper into every recording. Over the years, AVID has tried many different phono stage designs, most of them technically excellent, but all lacking the emotional connection, the breath of life, the realism, which AVID turntables reveal. They also lacked what AVID calls "sheer power"; the presence, solidity and drive that transcends mere audio equipment, creating the true physicality of the performance.
AVID turned their substantial manufacturing prowess towards the creation of their ideal phono preamplifier, one with the exceptionally low background noise, impressive isolation and visceral presence of their turntables.
