Accustic Arts Tube Phono II

ACCUSTIC ARTS® TUBE PHONO II: The analog expert for your vinyl.

Interested? Contact Us


Acoustic Arts’ technicians already had plans in the pipeline for a pure phono preamplifier long before It’s inception, IN 2015 they that the time was right for the new TUBE PHONO II. And what could be a better venue for the world premiere of an analog high-end audio product than the audiophile hifi show HIGH END 2016 in Munich/Germany?

Just as the word “TUBE” indicates, we have also opted to use excellent tubes selected for their sound for our first phono preamplifier in combination with the finest transistor technology. ACCUSTIC ARTS® insiders will know that the Roman figure “II” signals that the TUBE PHONO II is a member of the reference series.

As with all ACCUSTIC ARTS® products, the focus with the TUBE PHONO II is on excellent measured values and an exceptional acoustic pattern and easy and uncomplicated operation of the unit. Friends of analog technology naturally have the choice between moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC) pick-up systems and can adapt the required capacity or impedance by means of the chromed rotary knob. Long live the vinyl! We are happy about that.

Fits to MM and MC cartridges
Professional Class A output stage using technology derived from studio engineering
All used components are of outstanding quality and additionally selected, e.g. 1% high precision foil capacitors, 1% metal film resistors (SE version with 0.5 % high precision components)
1 x balanced output (XLR) and 1 x unbalanced output (RCA)
2 magnetically shielded, encapsulated 75 VA toroidal core transformers („Made in Germany“) of premium quality for high output reserves
