Zanden Debuts Model 120 Solid-State LCR Phono Preamplifier

Osaka, Japan-based Zanden Audio added a third phono preamplifier to its line with the $7,500 Model 120, a solid state LCR RIAA design using Jensen dual tap step-up transformers with 60dB and 71dBs of gain and input impedances of 36 ohms and 470 ohms respectively.

The Model 120 includes an absolute polarity switch and five equalization curves for you to use and/or abuse: RIAA, TELDEC, EMI, Columbia and DECCA, the latter four of which should only be used on older, mono records.
