Tom Evans Microgroove created a benchmark for phono stage performance at this level - this award winning "Plus" model features Lithos power regulation. The standard mains PCB has been replaced with a new board that features Lithos voltage regulation, which is 3 times faster, 1000 times quieter, and 5 decimal places more accurate than the "best" previous regulators.
This is provided from an external supply box which contains a 70 watt transformer and electrostatic screens to prevent interference. Power is then rectified, smoothed and regulated before entering the phono stage. The ultra low noise and distortion of the design has resulted in a phono stage. These improvements result in a greatly enhanced sound quality, with a lower noise floor and more musical presentation.

If the `Micro-Groove' establishes a new benchmark, then the `Plus' sets the standard for others to aspire to. No it doesn't match the astonishing performance of `The Groove', but then it doesn't cost £1500 either. What you get at £700 is enough of `The Groove's attributes to seriously embarrass the (much) more expensive competition. You also get an immediate improvement in the performance of every record you own (HiFi+ magazine)
