Product Description

Pathos In The Groove is a very successful phono pre-amplifier, already well known on the market, it has now been entirely redesigned and has received excellent reviews in the hi-fi press.

High Quality

Pathos InTheGroove features high quality integrated circuits, fitting with flexibility to any kind of phono detector. It is an analogue solid state product, featuring passive RIAA pre-amplification made up by two chassis, equipped with multi-tension linear power supply and three settings: impedance and capacity can be set by the front panel, while sensitivity by the rear panel.

Best Performance

These settings allow finding out the perfect match to get best performance and make the most of your audio system. A final tune of the sound can be gained from analogue source, according to your own musical taste and by changing impedance load value.

It’s about small changes that may meet the taste of the listener or not, but specifically for this reason they reveal all their strong flexibility and adjustment of such electronics.


Aluminium has been used both for painting and the chassis, on the upper part the carved logo can be found. It is compact and elegant; this product is an important accessory to your audio system to enjoy at best vinyl quality.

InTheGroove is available in two finishes and, if combined with Converto EVO and AmpliD, will set up a perfect audio system both for digital and phono source. It is entirely handmade in Italy.

Press Reviews

  • 'This is a fine, flexible phono stage that combines refinement with insight beautifully... Refined, insightful and entertaining sound, cartridge loading adjustments, fine build and finish.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine November 2016)

  • 'What does it take to make a top class phono stage? Great sound is a given, of course, but we also want easy cartridge matching, low levels of noise and excellent build quality. Pathos’s In The Groove delivers all these things in style.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine November 2016)

  • 'Give it a couple of days and things become a little clearer and more transparent... There’s a slight sweetness to the presentation coupled with a fluid, full-bodied balance. None of it is taken to the point where it intrudes, but it gives the unit a sound that works well with a wide range of partnering kit and recordings.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine November 2016)

  • 'Class leaders such as Cyrus’s excellent Phono Signature show a little more in terms of speed, dynamic punch and low frequency agility. But the Pathos counters with greater authority, a more organic way with vocals and the ability to convey large-scale dynamic shifts with more vigour.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine November 2016)

  • 'Provided you have a suitably talented turntable – something around the three to four grand mark at least – we think you’ll love this phono stage. It’s right up there with the best we’ve heard at the price.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine November 2016)
