Stereo Phono Pre-Amplifier

Superphon Revelation Basic


Purity of form and function are the hallmarks of superior design. The Superphon Revelation Basic preamplifier exemplifies this philosophy in a distinctive, minimum-function package that will delight music lovers of every persuasion.

Simple, direct and easy to use, the Revelation Basic will bring more height, width and depth to your stereo soundstage than you dreamed was possible. Many tube equipment users will be able to have realistic sound space coherence plus extended frequency response, low noise, low distortion and long term stability.

Audiophiles with plans for growth will appreciate the optional modules for extending the capabilities. Designed for long life and ease of repair, this preamplifier will provide years of trouble-free service.

The Revelation Basic is a control preamplifier which features one phono and two auxiliary inputs. The preamp is a wide-band design and will easily accommodate both digital and video sources.

The voltage gain stages are actively current-sourced class A with parallel complementary outputs. The circuit features dual regulators and local decoupling for both high and low level stages.

The dual-mono basic features four discrete regulators which provide separate B+ and B- regulation for each channel. Single point grounding and power supply routing provide low crosstalk and IM distortion. Metal film resistors, polystyrene bypass and EQ caps and tested semiconductors are used exclusively.
