for the Phenomena Nova
I've had the Nova for about 10 months. I use it with very good ancilaries and it's as good as the rest of the system. Highly reviewed and recommended in TAS. So neutral it may be mistaken for cool or reserved. Not so=it's just neutral and gives what the cartridge sends it without adding anything or subtracting anything. 256 loading options and many gain options up to 60 db. Dead quiet. Reproduces the lowest level details clearly and cleanly so gives more "there" there. Used with a Dynavector 17D 3 cartridge at 60 db gain. Gain and loading easily changed.
Product Weakness: Big light on the front-red when charged, blinking red when charging and green when operating in battery mode. Product Strengths: Neutral, neutral, neutral. Quiet, clear and astonishingly detailed w/o being "in your face".
