The Parasound Zphono is a compact half rack width, high quality phono pre-amplifier

Missing a phono input in your audio system? Well, take those LPs out of storage, the Zphono is here!

Now as we know vinyl has had a bit of resurgence – in fact arguably it’s never been cooler really, but what is not cool – or what will guarantee to get you into a spin is using a poor quality phono stage or pre-amplifier.

The Zphono can be utilised ina stack with other compact Z series products to complete a pretty impressive system, it works with all line drive pre-amplifiers. Externally the Zphono comes with gold plated RCA inputs and outputs has a AC polarity switch to eliminate any potential noise and hum, and has user selectable gain selector for MM or MC cartridges. Internally it uses ultra high speed, low noise opamps along with audiophile grade resistors and capacitors to ensure the best possible performance no matter what your set up is.

This elegantly simple and affordable component allows your turntable to be used with any preamplifier or receiver with sound quality that does full justice to your record collection. In the rack, underneath your turntable with a Zamp, or siddling alongside your Zdac it’ll do all your discs justice…Long live vinyl!

The Parasound Halo Zphono is available in black and silver finishes – please specify on order.

Note the silver Z-Series products cannot be rack mounted.
