CPP-1 MC step-up forforstærker.


Zyx CPP-1 MC step-up forforstærker

ZYX gør meget ud af bevare tidsdomænet fra deres patenterede spole, og har derfor gjort en række tiltag for at opnå dette:

  1. Modstandene i forforstærkerens indgang er derfor fremstillet som en spole, der ved en speciel viklingsproces ikke har nogen induktans.

  2. Resten af kredsløbet er holdt så tids-korrekt som muligt.

  3. Der benyttes batteridrift for at undgå støj fra vekselstrømsnettet.

  4. Forforstærkerens kabinet er lavet af umagnetisk materiale for at undgå ”eddy-currents” i et tilsvarende metal kabinet.

Artisan komplet Grammofon forforstærker med MC indgang

Zyx Artisan hvid

Artisan er en udbygget version af ZYX  CPP-1 step-up for-forstærkeren, hvor der er indbygget RIAA korrektionskredsløb - med andre ord en komplet grammofon for-forstærker, der kan tage MC pick-upper (high & low-output) samt MM pick-upper.

ZYX har for at bevare tids-domænet intakt gjort følgende tiltag:

 

Zyx Artisan sort1. Modstandene i forforstærkerens indgang er derfor fremstillet som en spole, der ved en speciel viklingsproces ikke har nogen induktans.

2. RIAA korrektionskredsløb i en CR konfiguration.
