Clearaudio Basic Plus Phonostage 

The Basic Plus is everything a modestly priced phonostage should be. It’s compact yet elegantly finished. It’s switchable between MM and MC cartridges. A robust outboard power supply is included, and yields superb isolation from hum and RFI. Most significantly, the unit delivers a spacious and delightfully resolved soundstage with heart-stopping bass resolution. If you want the last word in isolation, consider adding the Clearaudio Accu+, an outboard NiMH battery supply.

The Basic Plus phonostage offers both MM and MC capabilities, with enough gain to drive the lowest output cartridges. The Plus can be upgraded using the Clearaudio Accu++ outboard supply. 

The layout of the circuitry is optimized for high channel separation, complementing Clearaudio phono cartridges. All of our phono preamplifiers use the Clearaudio non-magnetic MPC RCA jacks.
