Now this is something, that I'm sure will intrigue many of you. Your's truly is already captivated with this device and the we're arranging the review sample with 加藤秀樹-san. What makes Soulnote E-2 special? It's a phono preamplifier, that offer the MC, MM and optical cartridge inputs all in one device. Yes, its fully compatible with DS Audio optical cartridges. But, that's not all. Soulnote E-2 feature the independent adjustments with six types of Roll-Off, four types of turnover frequency and six types of Low Limit adjustment. This translates to a total of 144 variation of different EQ curves from the Decca, COLUMBIA to the initial SP record (FLAT).
The setting table for EQ curve is in the user manual
The EQ curve is realized by switching the capacitor of the load of the non-feedback balance amplifier with a large number of relays. As a result, not only "frequency response" but also "phase" are correctly reproduced.
The powerful output features Class-A-discrete-non-feedback-amplifier. In addition, this amplifier changes to the optical cartridge exclusive equalizer when the optical cartridge is selected.
Oversized 400VA toroidal transformer
Also, a large amount of rectifier capacitors are used.
