The Era Gold V is a phono stage pre-amp for moving magnet, moving iron and high output moving coil phono cartridges.
The Era Gold V phono stage preamp is for moving magnet, moving iron and high output moving coil phono cartridges in the range 2mV to 10mV.
Now in its 9th year, it is one of the very few phono stage preamps ever to remain in Stereophile magazine's class-A recommended section for four years! It still features as a Stereophile recommended product.
A fixed gain RIAA phono stage preamp, the Era Gold V marked a "sea change" in phono stage preamp design. The Era Gold V pushed bandwidth wide open, something phono stage preamps just didn't do! It brought high stability video frequency technology to vinyl to the surprise of many. Musical boundaries were broken down to reveal sound-scapes extending well beyond the listening room! And from normal commercial pressings at that!
It also brought about an understanding about "burn-in" that few hi-fi enthusiasts had known before. Burn-in was well understood by precision ADC (analogue to digital) chip technology engineers early in development history. Common electronic components like resistors had been found to take as long as six months to settle to the point of maximum accuracy. Those reviewers patient enough discovered the secret depths of the Era Gold V phono stage preamp, which after 3 weeks being constantly on, delivered hitherto unknown levels of vinyl musicality.
