Description

To go with its turntables (but not only), MoFi had to develop a phono preamplifier. Meet the MoFi StudioPhono phono preamplifier!

MoFi StudioPhono : Chassis

As always, the US firm has a knack for finding the right partner! For the design of this phono preamplifier, as well as for the MoFi UltraPhono, it has called on a famous player in the Hi-Fi industry, Tim Deparavicini, who is none other that the founder and designer of EAR Yoshino's electronic products!

The Mofi StudioPhono phono preamp has an unusual flat and long design!

Its modest size (10 x 17 x 3.2 cm) will easily fit anywhere. The top has two push buttons.

The build quality is great, even better than other products in this price range.

MoFi StudioPhono : Running and connection

The one on the right controls the subsonic filter. It cuts the response in the sub-bass frequency and reduces any unwanted movement of the speaker's diaphragm in some layouts. Playback is more precise and cleaner in the bottom of the spectrum.

The second button activates a real mono mode! It works great with monophonic records and is unfortunately too rare with phono preamps, and even fully exclusive for a product of this range!

The back panel has an RCA input and output pair, a ground plug and a 3-pin DIN connector for the external power supply.

The underside has a DIP switch to select the gain (40, 46, 60 or 66dB) and resistive load (75 ohms, 100 ohms, 500 ohms 1 kohms, 10 kohms and 47 kohms ).

MoFi StudioPhono : Listening and test review

Reproduction is amazing, even baffling! For this price, few phono stages have such presence and dynamics!

The level of details is amazing, and all the instruments come to life perfectly, even on complex pieces. Naturally, it is dependent on the quality of the phono cartridge andvinyl turntable.

I have to admit that the StudioPhono most convinced me with MC models. The gain is good and, above all, it is silent enough to be seamless and leave all the qualities of the moving coil cartridges to be expressed. It has the subtleness and realism that is typical of this technology.

If we consider its capabilities, adjustments, versatility, mono function and price, the MoFi StudioPhono phono preamp is definitely the best deal to date!

We highly recommended it!

BEST BUY

Préampli vraiment étonnant au regard de son prix. Construction n'appelant aucune critique, look sympa, le coté paramétrable + P/B mono et filtre subsonique extrêmement pratique et lui donnant une grande polyvalence .
Maintenant coté son, que du bonheur, je l'utilise pour l'instant avec une cellule MM, Nagaoka MP15(NOS) remplaçant une vénérable DVX4 à bout de souffle, monté sur ma Planar 3. (au passage merci pour vos conseil, l'entretoise Rega, vraiment indispensable)
J'utilisait précédemment l'entrée AUX (option phono) de mon Atoll IN100, qui m'avait poussé à délaisser l'écoute de vinyles, tant elle se montrait décevante par rapport à mon ampli précèdent (un Luxman L430) ... Mais depuis l'achat de ce préamp Mofi, mes vieilles B&W DM7 chantent à nouveau, je viens de rajeunir de trente ans et envisage vraiment d'investir prochainement pour une Dynavector DVX5 neuve.
Au passage, félicitations pour votre site et votre professionnalisme, à maintenant 55 ans j'ai appris pas mal de choses et transmis à mon fils de 22 ans la passion de l'écoute de vinyles...
