SuperNova II Phono Stage
(Black finish)

$ 25,999
The SuperNova II is a three-input phono preamplifier intended for use with more than one turntable or a turntable with more than one tonearm. There is user-adjustable loading and gain for each of the inputs. The loading and gain is set via switches and is accessible from the rear of the chassis.

The switching between the inputs does not actually switch the inputs and loading. Instead, it has three independent front ends — the current source is switched to the one that will be active. The outputs are summed into the backend circuitry. In this way, no switching occurs in the signal path when the switched attenuator is not being used.

The SuperNova II is fully dual-mono and is powered from a remote dual-mono power supply. The remote power supply supports NiMH rechargeable batteries, but is designed to work perfectly without the batteries.

The batteries will allow the SuperNova II to run completely isolated from the wall power for a period of three hours. There are four independent charging circuits for the four battery packs.

The SuperNova II has an 11-position variable output switched attenuator that allows direct connection to a power amplifier.

Nova II Phono Stage

For the past 15 years, Michael Yee’s Phonomena phono stage designs have defined Q.P.R., or Quality/Price Ratio, for phono stages, and the Nova II is no exception.

Built in California, the new Nova II is a battery-powered phono stage with incredible flexibility and performance. The Nova II replaces the popular Nova Phonomena. Our Nova II battery-powered phono preamplifier, sharing improved chassis design of our MYDAC II, features dual-mono, discrete circuitry with extensive gain and loading flexibility, delivering the best sound in its price range. Like the Phonomena II and SuperNova II, the Nova II has rear panel accessible switches for easily accessible and highly flexible gain and loading adjustment. It features 2 rechargeable internal NiMH dual-mono battery packs with Smart Sensing auto recharge feature. All AC and charging circuits automatically disconnect when listening in battery mode. The Nova II features enhanced casework design and upgraded internal components.

The Musical Surroundings Nova II is a complete phonograph preamplifier with RIAA equalization that amplifies the output signal of a phono cartridge, either moving coil or moving magnet, up to a nominal “line level”. The Nova II may be used with a receiver or an integrated amplifier. If you use separate components, a line level control unit (preamp) is required before the power amp, since there is no independent volume control for the Nova II. The Nova II’s power supply is internal and connnects to the wall with the supplied wall mount transformer.
