There are two dedicated phono amplifiers in the Sugden range and both are borne from our passion for vinyl. The Stage Two offers exceptional value for money with facilities to cater for both MM and MC cartridges. The design is a two box system separating the power supply from the amplifier. The phono amplifier has fixed loading for MM and 100 and 470 Ohm selection for MC.
Our design criteria was to produce a product that was as neutral as possible, retaining a faithful and enjoyable analogue sound.
