100% pure tube job, no silicon inside

 

Lampizator Vinyl Phono MM1

After successful launch of our MC1 phono stage, we realized that in this price category many audiophiles already own very good quality SUT transformers for MC, sometimes - dedicated to their favorite cartridge. Consequently we decided to offer a version of phono stage without input transformers - just MM type, but retaining all the amazing qualities of MC1. Basically this is the highest level of phono that we can imagine, which in combination with your favorite SUT will be the ultimate phono system without equal.

The resulting device is beautiful, great sounding, and packed with extras that make a perfect compliment for the existing MC SUT of yours.

Key highlights:

MM compatibility with most of low, normal or high output MM cartridges
No transformers on board
ultra low noise design with 2 layer shielding
super advanced PCB technology with 4 layer design and full shielding
zero vibration design 20 mm mdf platform
Possibility of custom order input impedance for particular cartridge
muting function for needle cleaning, headshell change or simply arm cue-in on the record.
principle of operation: tube RIAA preamplifier, Single Ended


Technical specs:

Voltage amplification ratio: 
Load defaults: 47 000 Ohms
Power supply: user selectable 115/230(240) V AC @ 10 Watts
Box dimensions [W x H x D ] 430  x 130 x 520 [mm]
Net weight / shipping gross : 12 kg / 19 kg
Available front colors: anodized black, anodized satin silver, champagne, custom RAL

User opinion: “I tested the MM1 not knowing what to expect, after using exclusively solid state MM's with my SUT. This product redefines what you can squeeze from your vinyl rig: for me there is no return to solid state. I identified my system's bottleneck !"

 

Lampizator Vinyl Phono MM2


Our new phono MM2 is directly derived from our flagship MM1. We tried very hard to maintain the top quality of sound, parts, technology and execution, while reducing the physical size and chassis footprint. The MM2 will fit easily on any rack shelf, as well as in the smaller budget.

The whole analog signal section is identical with the MC1/MM1 to she smallest part, while the power supply is silicon, not tubed. It is a matter of discussion how big is the sonic signature of fully tubed PSU but it definitely belongs in the big flagship, which is twice as big, twice as heavy and twice the price.

MM2 has the following key features:

MM cartridge compatiblity with 47k input
external SUT transformer compatibility for MC cartridges
high sensitivity even for low output cartridges
copper sheet capacitors in the signal output
perfect RIAA tracing
4 layer fully shielded PCB
no silicon in the whole signal path
precisely regulated heaters with slow start function
extremely good tubes selected from the whole world's range of available triodes
tube rolling is possible by the user (ECC803, ECC88 types)
Elegant Lampizator chassis (Amber 3 DAC) with 10 mm aviation grade aluminum front
5 years warranty.



Our experience in designing tube DACs and amps allowed us to create a very elegant circuit, with low noise, no hum, very dynamic, spacious and three dimentional sound, simply not possible from opamp based phono stages.

MSRP world wide price 3900 Euro netto
Choice of black, silver or champagne front panel and as usual - color of the button eye ring.




Technical specs:

INPUTS/ OUTPUTS: a pair of SE inputs (xlr by order) and a pair of SE outputs. Arm grounding lug.
Power supply: user selectable 115/230(240) V AC @ 20 Watts
Box dimensions [W x H x D ] 430  x 130 x 330 [mm]
Net weight / shipping gross : 10 kg / 15 kg
Available front colors: anodized black, anodized satin silver, champagne, custom RAL

User opinion: “This is a wolf in sheep's clothes - despite its relatively small and simple look, this product shocked me, by opening a huuuge window to the soundstage, with music so liquid, easy flowing and damn dynamic. My MM cartridges now sound like good MC and I can't imagine what an addition of SUT with MC would do to my system !”

Lampizator Vinyl Phono MC-SUT-A (coming in August 2020)

Already fourth product in our phono vinyl lineup, SUT-A is an amorphous step up transformer. It represents the highest quality transformer, wound on the top level amorphous metal core. Every smallest detail, responsible for sound quality, has been maximized without compromise. We wanted to create an unique product, not just a SUT with input and output, so we added the convenience features that nobody on the market offers with their SUT’s.
The resulting device is beautiful, great sounding, and packed with extras that make a perfect compliment for the existing MM phono stages with which it must operate to create a complete vinyl setup.

Key highlights:

MC compatibility with most of low to normal output MC cartridges
stereo transformers in one box
ultra low noise design with 3 layer shielding
super advanced PCB technology with 4 layer design and full shielding
zero vibration design 10 mm copper platform with extra layer of EMC and RFI shielding
5 selectable MC loading impedances - user-switchable on the flight (without pops)
Possibility of custom order input impedance for particular cartridge
cool NIXIE display for load setting identification
muting function for needle cleaning, headshell change or simply arm cue in on the record.
principle of operation: passive step up signal transformer, no tubes.
MM phono compatibility (next amplification/RIAA unit): 47k Ohm input/output.(tubed as well as solid state).


Technical specs:

Voltage amplification ratio:  8 or 16, factory selectable by order. Default  = 16
Number of load settings: 5
Load defaults: 20, 50, 100, 200 and 1000 Ohms
Power supply: user selectable 115/230(240) V AC @ 10 Watts
Box dimensions [W x H x D ] 430  x 130 x 330 [mm]
Net weight / shipping gross : 6 kg / 9 kg
Available front colors: anodized black, anodized satin silver, champagne, custom RAL

User opinion: “combined with my top notch MM phono, the Lampizator SUT-A allowed me to use MC cartridges that I could not use before. The resulting sound is nothing short of phenomenal: spacious, 3-dimensional, dynamic and detailed. I hear micro nuances not heard ever before. This investment has taken my vinyl rig to another level.”
