The Clearaudio NANO-PHONO provides real High-End performance at a truly budget price.
Clearaudio have achieved this breakthrough by using a simple, elegant and astonishingly effective design perspective. The printed circuit board is embedded within a massive precision-CNC-machined aluminium block that forms a resonance-free chassis. The miniature size of the Nano-Phono ensures outstanding technical results and unheard of quietness within its price range!
The latest sophisticated surface-mount technology is used in conjunction with precision electronic components, such as BURR-BROWN (Texas Instruments) integrated circuits, and extremely short signal paths leading to a pure, hum and noise-free music reproduction.
The fully dual-mono design features separate left and right switches for input loading, gain control and MM / MC selection, extracting the best results from virtually any cartridge!
The Nano Phono is also available with a practicable headphone - output (Nano Phono Headphone).
About the size of a deck of cards, the appropriately named Nano Phono uses a body of CNC-machined aluminum. Its sophisticated surface-mount technology boasts BurrBrown integrated circuits, very short signal paths, and dual-mono design. In spite of its petite profile it answers a variety of cartridge needs by including input loading resistors, mm/mc jumpers, and a subsonic filter. It also offers variable gain via a top-mount control wheel.
The Nano V2 its meticulously selected SMD components are assembled by hand in Erlangen and tested several times. The reward of these efforts is a signal to noise ratio of up to 84 decibels. The input impedance is set using plug-in links, so there is no loss of quality when using different moving magnet and moving coil cartridges.
The Nano Phono Headphone additionally contains a powerful headphone amplifier within the solid aluminium housing for private listening at the highest fidelity.
