The E-Glo Petit phono pre-amplifier is based upon a hybrid design using 12AX7 valves. It handles both MM and MC capability. Take a quick glance and, for a moment, it also looks like a reel-to-reel player!
Featuring a subsonic filter toggle switch, if required, plus a pair of inputs and outputs on the rear alongside an earth screw, the core of the unit is positioned inside an aluminium casing with wooden side panels.
“With our special designed power supply we enabled the tubes to stay ‘hot’ at all times…
…that ensures that they perform at their maximum during the entire listening session,” said the company.
The included power supply for the E-Glo is regulated and “well filtrated” using low noise J-FET (2SK209) in a quad-setup. The Input Impedance (Low) is rated at: 10, 18, 43, 75, 150, 300, 600, 1200 Ohm, Input Impedance (High) is 30, 36, 42, 47, 53, 59, 65, 75k Ohm. Load arrives at 50, 150, 270, 370, 520, 620 pF, Output Impedance is 100 Ohms while available gain is 40, 45, 50, 60, 65, 70dB.
