Vincent Audio, a designer and manufacturer of audiophile-grade stereo and multichannel components, announced today the availability of a new entry-level high-fidelity phono preamp, the PHO-300.

The Vincent Audio PHO-300 Phono Preamplifier, is the third and most affordable entry in Vincent Audio’s series of two-piece phono preamps. Like its predecessors – PHO-500 and the top-of-the-line PHO-701 – the PHO-300’s power supply is in a separate housing to isolate electromagnetic fields from the preamp as well as outside interference.

Turntable Sales

“In 2019 alone, over 72,000 turntables were sold in the U.S. alone, and a large percentage of those buyers are first-timers who are new to the joys of analogue audio,” said Steve Niemi, Director of Global Sales, Pangea Audio, LLC. “The Vincent Audio PHO-300 gives music lovers on a budget an opportunity to bring out the detail and full frequency range of vinyl without depleting the budget.”

MM & MC Cartridges

Vincent Audio’s PHO-300 phono preamplifier performs with any moving coil (MC) or moving magnet (MC) cartridge.

The MM section delivers a greater than 83 db signal to noise ratio, while the MC section provides greater than 70 db ratio, with total harmonic distortion of less than 0.05%. Selection is made via a switch on the thick aluminium front panel that is present on all of Vincent Audio’s series of phono preamps.

Added Mr. Niemi: “The PHO-300 features reduced noise levels and overall performance that is light years ahead of any competitive model at the same price. It’s an essential ingredient in any vinyl lover’s system.”
