Designed primarily for moving coil cartridges the Chord Electronics Symphonic Phono Stage offers an incredible number of input impedence and gain options, all of which are externally selectable. The Chord Electronics Symphonic Phono Stage also incorporates a new low frequency Rumble feature, which uniquely filters out rumble signals on both channels.

The high-performance Symphonic uses Chord's latest high-frequency power supply technology to exploit vinyl’s full potential, along with many new key features, to bring the performance levels in line with the Choral range, home of the DAVE DAC/preamp.

The Symphonic offers an almost infinite number of input impedance and gain options as well as balanced and unbalanced input options to the cartridge, making it a highly flexible device for integrating high-quality turntables into Chord systems. The comprehensive settings options are all externally selectable, with selections signified internally with illuminating LEDs. A rumble filter removes unwanted low-frequency rumble signals appearing on both channels.

Depending on the wiring of the tone arm used on the turntable, the Symphonic can be operated in either an unbalanced or balanced mode.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
