1 review for Parasound Zphono Audiophile-Quality MM/MC Phono Preamp

  1. Eric Peterson

    The Parasound Zphono is an outstanding phono preamp. I’ve run at least a dozen different phono preamps through my stereo system over the years and finally found my keeper. I added an Isotek EVO3 Initium power cable and that’s when the Zphono really came into its own. The Zphono is virtually noiseless and includes a power phase switch to eliminate any source hum issues (I had none). With a really good set of RCA cable interconnects, the Zphono is all the phono preamp you’ll ever need. Highest recommendation!
