An epic struggle
First things first, I owe you an apology. This is July’s Newsletter and I am emailing it to you in August. Yes, it’s all true and it is my fault. We weren’t quite ready to launch the video I want you to see so we waited.
See the smiling face above? That’s PS Audio’s senior analog engineer, Darren Myers. And why’s he smiling? Because after months of hair-pulling design agony he’s finally able to share the fruits of his labor.
Designing new and innovative approaches to classic equipment is hard enough, but then throw in an obsession with perfection and you have a tall mountain to climb. Darren set out to craft a 100% discrete FET low noise phono preamplifier that would challenge all comers. To do that he had to explore approaches that have never before found their way into phono preamplifier designs—and then make all that affordable.
A tall order, especially considering just how good phono preamps are today.
Watch the video of what Darren was hoping to achieve and what he went through to get there while designing Stellar Phono.
