ROTHWELL Simplex mm phonostage
simple, compact and affordableRated 5/5 based on 1 reviews.
The Simplex is a moving magnet phono pre-amp compatible with moving magnet and high output moving coil cartridges, giving superb performance. It uses the same class A discrete transistor circuit topology employed so successfully in the Rialto, but without the Rialto's extra moving coil gain stage. The result is truly audiophile performance in a simple, compact and affordable unit, rivaling phonostages at many times the price.

Rothwell 'Simplex' phono stage.2 October 2018I'll be honest as this is my second 'Simplex' needed for a second system. I have many phono stages including fine DIY units, but this 'Simplex' is one of those rare phono stages that actually 'sounds like music!' Why I'm not sure, perhaps its pure discrete transistor circuit with no op amps anywhere, however it is an eminently sonically satisfying phono stage that sounds so wonderful to the ear. Many contemporary phono stages seem to have great bass or treble or midrange or whatever, but to my ears the Rothwell 'Simplex', sounds like 'music'. I can't really put it any other way! If you like the sound of 'music' as it really is, then this phono stage gets the biggest recommendation! I love it.
