EAR 88PB Phono Amplifier
834P was one of the very first standalone phono stages and has become
one of our best-selling products. Now the continuing popularity of
vinyl has encouraged us to develop an upmarket phono preamp, the 88PB.
Drawing on designer Tim de Paravicini�s vast knowledge of audio
electronics, and employing several of the innovations he incorporated
in the class-leading The Paravicini 312 Control Centre, a
fully-featured preamp and 324 phono stage (both solid state), the 88PB
is a definitive statement in valve electronics.
Its specification is a perfect match of essential flexibility with
cost-conscious simplicity. Two inputs cater for the growing number of
vinyl-lovers with more than one turntable or arm. Both inputs accept
moving magnet cartridge inputs, while one is also switchable for moving
coil types - naturally using de Paravicini�s famed input transformers
for lowest noise and highest fidelity. MC input impedance is adjustable
The inclusion of a volume control allows for direct connection to a
power amp in one-source systems. To avoid cable-dependent high
frequency response, a highly linear buffer stage follows the volume
control, using an output transformer which provides balanced or
single-ended output at a low impedance which can effortlessly drive
Other exclusive design details include a unique high stability circuit
for achieving the RIAA equalisation curve demanded by discs, and of
course the superb all-round sound quality of all EAR amps is guaranteed.
The 88PB: you never realised your vinyl sounded this good.
