Canor Audio PH 2.10 Tube Phono Preamplifier
The Canor Audio PH 2.10 Tube Phono Preamplifier is a precision instrument for extracting as much information as possible from every record groove, without any interruption or direct influence from the unit itself. The key to this feat is having the preamplifier's operation as quiet as possible, especially when used with sensitive Moving Coil cartridges. Canor partnered with Lundahl to design specially-sealed transformers for this specific use, resulting in zero transformer hum.
The PH 2.10 uses two 12AX7 and two 12AT7 tubes to accomplish very discrete multi-stage gains, occurring in 4 steps. With eight levels of both MC input impedance, and MM load capacity, the PH 2.10 is as versatile as any other hifi phono preamplifier.
Further, the modern and simplistic front face, dial, and display offer a commanding view of the intricacies of what's happening inside the unit. An 18 db/octave selectable subsonic filter was also added to reduce mechanical "motor-boating" from turntable movement. Canor has thought of every detail.
As with all Canor units, this piece features a 2-year manufacturer's warranty (3-month warranty on the tubes themselves).
