Priced at £299, the chassis offers a volume knob, gain switch, a pair of RCA inputs and outputs plus two headphone outs, at 3.5mm and 6.3mm. A good thing, in may book as it means there’s no demand for sonic crushing plug adaptors. Spanning 197 x 172 46.5mm, it weighs in a 1.05kg.

The LPS phono amplifier handles both MM and MC formats but provides connections for both which means that, in theory, two turntables can connect to it simultaneously. The company declared that, “The noise ratio on both MM (better than 82dB) and MC (better than 72dB)…” combines with distortion at, “…less than 0.007% across the audio band.” MC covers 100 Ohms with an input sensitivity of 300μV.
