The Blackline PH1 is a high performance phono-pre-amplifier that supports both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges. Although some amplifiers have an integral phono stage, PH1 is a dedicated phono pre-amplifier that offers an audible sound upgrade once connected between your Turntable and Amplifier.
Designed primarily to complement our range of Blackline valve amplifiers, PH1 can easily fit into any existing audio system where a phono stage is required.
Even if your existing amplifier has a built in phono stage, PH1 can be connected to Line In and will offer an improved performance as most built in phono stages are not of high quality.
What People Say
- v32Bought this recently and had a week now of connecting, testing and listening. Impressed immediately with not only the sales service, but the quality of this amp. Slightly bigger and heavier than I expected which was a good thing! Bluetooth connection was straight forward and so far, very quick and reliable. Really impressed with the connectivity given the on-board phono stage, x1 rca line in, x1 single line in, sub out and headphones out. Pretty much covers everything!As mentioned had a week to run the valves in so still a bit away from hearing it really sing but so far, very impressed. I live in a flat so volume is an issue but this gives me more than enough with some to spare. I wanted quality and it hasn’t disappointed. My vinyl has an extra warmth and detail whilst streaming is crystal clear without the harshness when the volume is pushed.
This is a really well designed, optioned and built piece of kit that is a terrific entry point for anyone looking to enter the realm of tube amplification. Highly recommend!
