The black CP2 Moving Magnet & Moving Coil Phono Preamplifier from Cambridge Audio provides sound accuracy and amplify the signal without distorting it. Not only does it work with turntables that use moving magnet cartridges, but also with the high-end audiophile ones that use moving coil cartridges, offering more accuracy and detail than moving magnet. Even if your amplifier does have a built-in phono stage, it can be bypassed using the CP2 Preamp to deliver greater depth and detail. Audio circuitry has been refined with multiple transistors wired in parallel ensuring the lowest possible distortion and noise. A copper shield provides further protection to sensitive part of the circuitry, limiting the noise that can be injected into the signal. This is especially important with a moving coil cartridge because its signal is quieter and more delicate than moving magnet, requiring more amplification.

  • Phono pre-amplifier with moving magnet and moving coil input stages
  • Balance control for fine correction of cartridge imbalance
  • Discrete transistors for the all-important input stages instead of the more common integrated circuits
  • Eco-friendly <1W standby power consumption
  • Single-ended ‘Class A’ gain stage with audiophile passive RIAA equalization
  • Multiple parallel capacitors to achieve an RIAA accuracy of only 0.3 dB up to 50 kHz
  • Selectable subsonic filter to eliminate very low-frequency ‘rumble’, caused by vinyl imperfections
  • Black finish
