Hafler PH50B/PH60B phono preampsHafler (a division of Radial Engineering) has released the PH50B and PH60B high-performance standalone phono stages.

Reflecting the continued resurgence of vinyl, both units feature unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR outputs for connection to playback systems or pro audio equipment.

The original PH50 and PH60 earned the accolades of recording industry legends including Alan Parsons and Chuck Ainlay, who praised their audio quality and transparency. Now with the addition of balanced XLR outputs, the PH50B and PH60B can be easily connected with pro audio equipment such as mixing consoles and recording interfaces, allowing for playback in the studio or digitization of vinyl collections.  

The PH50B is designed for moving magnet (MM) cartridges, while the PH60B includes a second gain stage for low output moving coil (MC) cartridges. Both units feature gold-plated RCA inputs and outputs to provide optimal signal transfer without tarnishing over time. True +4dB line level signals are available at the XLR outputs, which can be switched to -10dB operation via an internal push-switch. Ground lift switches help to eliminate buzz and hum from ground loops when connected to these XLR outputs, and a low-cut filter eliminates excessive low frequencies and turntable rumble. Additionally, the PH60B features internal jumpers that adjust the input impedance for ideal matching with different moving coil cartridges.

The MSRP of the PH50B is US$449.99, and of the PH60B is US$549.99.
