It is the ideal partner to ATC’s high-end active loudspeakers and also power amplifiers, such as the ATC P2.  Balanced and unbalanced inputs and outputs provide flexible connectivity to a very wide range of partnering equipment.  The optional phono stage is fully configurable for both gain, resistive and capacitive loading and its low-noise design makes it well suited to even the lowest output moving coil cartridges.

Features
