The V90-LPS is a Phono Stage with outstanding sound
quality at a highly affordable price.
The V90-LPS is a modestly priced, very high performance
MM/MC phono stage with superb technical performance.
In our opinion, there are five critical areas where a phono
stage must achieve excellence:
above 20 kHz
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 V90-LPS’s distortion is very low. Noise ratio is
extremely low and all but inaudible.
Overload margin is easily adequate for any current
All in all, the V90-LPS accomplishes everything necessary
for a phono stage.
There are many phono stages that are far more expensive and
make extraordinary claims for their performance. In contrast, the modest
V90-LPS just gets on with the job of doing everything you could reasonably
expect from a phono stage.
If you want top notch performance, and don’t care about the
alleged conferred status of buying a high-priced product that offers no better
performance than the V90-LPS, then we are of a like mind.
