Clearaudio Balance+ Phonostage

With its superior performance, the Balance+ phonostage would not be out of place in any professional studio.

For maximum dynamic headroom and RIAA accuracy of less than 0.1dB, the components are fitted directly on the circuit board in custom aluminium blocks to minimise electrical and mechanical influences and reliably keep disturbances out of the amp.

A precision tool for sound engineers which performs equally well as part of a domestic high-end system. The elegantly designed Balance+ has a headphone output on the front panel and a matching second chassis to house its external power supply. The addition of the Accu+ battery power supply makes the Balance+ a three-chassis phonostage with an even higher performance.

Fitted with a high quality volume control the Balance+ can also be directly connected to a power amplifier acting as a control preamp. The Balance+ phonostage reproduces the entire range of audiophile recordings unaltered.
