- Superb technical performance.
- Switchable MM / MC input
- Beautiful, considered build quality
The V90-LPS is a modestly priced, very high performance MM/MC phono stage with superb technical performance.
There are five critical areas where a phono stage must achieve excellence:
- RIAA correction
- Correction above 20 kHz
- Low distortion
- Low noise
- Good overload margin
The V90-LPS has extremely accurate RIAA correction and that extends up to 80 kHz and beyond. That may sound extreme, but there is a good deal of information above 20 kHz that needs correction. If it isn’t corrected, it will show itself as ringing and overshoot. The distortion is very low. Noise ratio is extremely low and all but inaudible. Overload margin is easily adequate for any current cartridge.
All in all, the V90-LPS accomplishes everything necessary for a phono stage.
