Heritage PH100

Posted · Add Comment

Released September 2018

While many of today’s lower cost phono stages are physically very small, we took the decision with the Ph100 to produce a narrow but full depth product. Too often we see cables that are either plainly visible or alternatively if placed closer to the rear of an amplifier, the weight of the cables can destabilize the phono stage.

Adding a phono preamplifier to the Heritage range has come as a direct response to repeated consumer demand.

YBA very well priced PH100 is both sleek and functional in its design and caters for moving magnet, moving coil plus high output moving coil cartridges. It is worth noting that the selector control on the front panel has only two options (MM or MC). The circuitry has been designed so that it will automatically sense which type of moving coil cartridge is being used and settings will adjust accordingly provided the correct selection is made from the toggle switch on the rear panel.

Featuring YBA’s own moving coil transformer, the design is uniquely suited to meet the different characteristics of moving coil cartridges.
