AVID Pulsus Phono Stage

"A new benchmark"

Pulsus embodies the experience gained during the development of the Pulsare to design this high quality but economically priced phonostage. Many of the Pulsare's features have been retained such as the switchable flexibility and separate power supply. 

The new Pulsus is the distillation of the experience gained during the development of AVID's ultra-high performance Pulsare phono stage. A single-ended, dual-mono two-box design, Pulsus is a true high-end design with outstanding performance and build quality at an affordable price.

AVID's Pulsus is a which keeps the noise floor exceptionally low. Distortion across the audio spectrum is virtually immeasurable. This phono preamp offers impressive headroom, great dynamics, fantastic amounts of detail, and a warmth of character common to all of AVID’s award-winning products. The Pulsus mates well with most MM or MC cartridges and its sonic signature is pure and musical – the natural reproduction of instruments alive in the original recording space.

"Exceedingly well made"

The Pulsus is built in the UK with high-specification internal components and to an exceedingly high level of quality. Inputs and outputs are both gold-plated RCAs. Gain, resistance and capacitance selections are all easily made from the underside of the chassis, offering exceptional flexibility and ease of use.

A passive RIAA (with Neumann HF correction) circuit using audiophile-grade capacitors helps maintain linearity of reproduction; and its external, regulated power supply provides refined power to causing this to have a vanishing low noise levels. You will be shocked to hear so much more micro-detail from all of your LPs when using the Pulsus.

Passionately manufactured within AVID’s own facilities, everything from PCB assembly, testing and quality control to the high-quality casework, all ensure a long lasting, reliable phono stage. The Pulsus is a stunning achievement! Our highest recommendation!

Ordered from Malaysia and item arrived safely within 6 days. Well done!
Even straight out of the box it made a significant difference with better bass and soundstaging. Classical music and vocals benefited the most but it also exposes badly maintained LP ie surface noise . I am using an upgraded Rega Planar 3 with Orfoton Blue . Replacing a Naim Nait 3 phono stage and Rega fono mini.Impressed with item and overall quality of service/delivery.

Brilliant phono stage. Tested it with MM (2m red) and MC dynavector 20x2L.

Managed to give life to some dull records even with the 2m red. With the MC dynavector it's a brilliant combination.

this phono stage is excellent for my system - brings out all the various sounds. you will notice I said for my system - I would say speak to the guys and explain what you have / want to have and budget - they will give an honest opinion - yes they are a business and need to sell but as all good businesses should do they are more interested in you getting the correct system for your budget. A happy customer is a returning customer - I would trust them.
