The 2108 is Boulder’s second generation of 2000-level phono preamplifier, following and improving upon their 2008 phonostage.

The  2108 is part of the 2100 Series and is Boulder’s reference  level phono preamplifier. The 2100 Series is Boulder’s highest-performing product line in continuous production.

The  2108 features several advancements over the previous generation 2000-level phono preamplifier, including the use of better ground paths and planes, revised circuit topology, and lowering of the static noise floor. Increased use of surface-mount PCB technology, manufactured on Boulder’s own SMD manufacturing machines and ovens has also yielded improvements.

In addition to the  standard  RIAA  EQ  curve,  the 2108  features three  additional  curves  selectable  via  a  front  panel  button:  FFRR,  Columbia,  and  EMI.  These equalisation curves enable correct and accurate playback of LP records made prior to 1954. All audio electronics and control functions are contained within a machined aluminium chassis and all power supply and  standby circuitry is housed in separate casework. The 2108 uses Boulder’s own 995  gain stage, has an MC Cartridge Demagnetizer Pass-through and a fully  Balanced, Dual Mono  Construction. It has three Inputs and  two outputs.

The  suggested US retail price for the Boulder 2108 Phono Preamplifier is $52,000. Export retail pricing will vary.
