CANOR PH 2.10

All-tube phono preamplifier

All-tube phono preamplifier

The CANOR PH 2.10 is an all-tube phono preamplifier for MM and MC cartridges. It contains the minimum number of amplification steps required to apply purely passive corrections.

Tubes

The PH2.10 contains 2 x 12AX7 and 2 x 12AT7 tubes and it is designed without overall feedback. The first and second amplification stages are made up of 12AX7, among which a subsonic filter is put. The third and fourth stages are made up of 12AT7.

Premium technology

Wiring circuitry without any global feedback. PCB`s utilize our premium CMT ™ technology.

Phono cartridge

The PH 2.10 allows an exceptionally large variability of gain adjustment and selection of the correct values of resistances and capacitances for all types of transmissions. All these settings can be made conveniently using the controls located on the front panel. The MC cartridges are connected to the preamplifier input using a high-quality Lundahl step-up transformer.

Transformer

To remove mechanical hum, the transformer core is vacuum impregnated, and the entire transformer is encapsulated in a special anti-vibration compound. In addition, the massive, welded cover in which the transformer is located creates effective electromagnetic shielding and contributes significantly to the excellent signal-to-hum distance. The primary and secondary windings are separated by a shielding copper foil with a 50% overlap, which prevents the penetration of interfering voltages from the network.

Capacitors

The only high-quality polypropylene capacitors are used in the signal path. The RIAA correction is passive and consists only of quality polystyrene and polypropylene capacitors. The output capacitor is also of high quality (polypropylene foil).
