This is a Demo of the Vinyl One Copper Reference Phono Stage.  Truly brilliant phono stage that will ship with a KAB Rumble filter.  It has ~100 hours on it and has been our demo at AXPONA and CAF.  Pairs perfectly with our Ortofon Cadenza line of cartridges and has also been paired with a Lyra Kleos perfectly.  You will see this item on the rack in our display at AXPONA.  Right side, on 2nd shelf with no nobs.  

The Vinyl One Copper Reference is the best of our world class valve phono stages.  It works with both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges. 

Like the base Vinyl One, it is a class-A, phase-correct design that uses a single 12AX7 per channel, one 12AX7 as cathode follower, and a 6FQ7 in its power supply. Its moving-magnet section provides 50dB of gain, with the moving-coil providing an additional 20dB. The input impedance is 100 ohms, and sensitivity is 2.25mV. Its rated frequency response is 20Hz - 20kHz +/- 1dB (moving magnet), 10Hz - 20kHz (moving coil). The Vinyl One is 18"W x 4"H x 10"D.

Just like the Copper Reference amplifiers, this is also wired using only continuous cast copper and is fitted with Art Audio's Silver Foil Coupling Capacitors.  The power supply in the Vinyl One Copper Reference is further enhanced with non electrolytic capacitors across the filter caps.  

This unit can be customized by adding a volume control.  If you are interested in customizations, please contact us.
