Phonopreamplifiers S.A.Lab of Capitals Series named «London», «Paris», «Berlin», «Moscow» и «New York» accumulated the unique atmosphere of world’s greatest capitals.
These are units of ultra audiophile capabilities and highest engineering level.
«Berlin» sounds a bit dry, neatly, strictly, academic, with accent to intellectualism.
«Paris» is naked, fresh, spring and very airy…
«London» reminds us of British aristocratism, privileged colleges, deep Hi-Fi-traditions and famous rock groups.
We feel passion and fire of Spanish flamenko, spirit of Velaskes, Segovia and de Falla in music created by «Madrid».
«New York» conquer with absolute dynamic and musical universalism…
As for «Moscow»… Though stop any explaining or eloquence. You should listen…
Clasic electronic circuit with RL-filters and four output transformers is implemented in Capitals Series Phonos. Two of four trasformers form output balanced signal what allows for simultaneous using of balanced and unbalanced outputs. Unlike most realisations with RC-correction there are no capacitors in S.A.Lab Capitals phonos’ signal paths.
Capitals phonos weigh each more than 27 kg, have step-up transformer (for MC) and interconect cables in packages.
Toroidal transformers for left and right channels are wound by silver wire and placed into permalloy caps which are additionally covered by metal shields. Stiff chassis made from polished stainless steel provides further protection form EM interference.
Inductors are produced by using silver wire and composite iron form Japan.
For power supply Alexey Syomin prefered diodes with choke filtering to kenotrons. He winds chokes by his own hands over core of German metal. All signal transformers are made of the very same metal form Germany.
Unlike C-L-C-filter the Capitals Phonos’ L-filter guarantees very stable output power.
Engineer uses exclusively hand made point-to-point wiring here (there are no PCBs). Low power circuits are foreseeingly protected by metal shields.
Tubes used are: 2 х 6SL7, 2 х 6SN7 (Saratov, Russia).
