The E-250 is the latest generation of phono equalizer amplifier from LUXMAN, inheriting the best in design from its predecessor the E-200 that has been the reference model for compact phono equalizer amplifiers since it was released in 2008.
The outstanding functionality of the E-250 is such that load impedance and load capacity can be selected according to the cartridge characteristics for the ultimate enjoyment of the original detail of analog reproduction. The E-250 allows the listener to adjust the fine settings for every performance, releasing the expression engraved in the grooves and creating a hitherto unknown musical impression.
The rear panel is equipped with a load impedance selector (34/47/56/100 kΩ) and a load capacity selector (0/100/220/320 pF) to match the characteristics of the cartridge and exploiting it to its full potential.
The E-250 features a step up transformer with a 2 stage gain selection function in which a L/R independent super permalloy core is used, thereby supporting even low impedance MC cartridges. This creates a rich and expressive musicality that is a unique characteristic of the transformer.
This model is designed in consideration of user-friendliness such as placing the articulator switch with the demagnetization function that accustoms the cartridge with sound signal current to be reproduced, monaural switch useful for various types of reproducing environments, and low cut switch on the front panel.
