Product Description

The Croft Acoustics RIAA RS Phono Stage is a two box phono stage design, takeing inspiration from the Micro 25 R Pre Amplifier and utilising the power supply of the 25RS. Featuring an all valve signal path with heavily regulated power supplies and two toroidal mains transformers. The RIAA RS is ideal for all Moving Magnet cartridges and can also be used for high output MC cartridges, and offers impressive depth, detail and scale that only a valve design and a Croft product can.

The RIAA RS offers improvements over the phono stage included in the Micro 25 RS, characterised by impressive detail and scale, with lifelike precision and an authoratitive valve soundstage. Thanks to the added separate power supply, even greater weight, detail and scale is offered.

    Stunning phono stage. Dynamic, huge soundstage, fast transients and very natural sounding. I think Glenn uses Russian PIO caps which are known for their beautiful sound. I have paired mine with a very good SUT and couldn’t be happier. I had a Sutherland 20/20 before.
