C-47 Stereo Preamplifier

The C-47 is the first phono amplifier of this series which realizes a fully balanced configuration from input to output. The resulting product not only is highly impervious to external noise, it also features a dedicated head amplifier optimized for the characteristics of MC and MM phono cartridges, and a high-accuracy equalizer amplifier, thereby ensuring precise equalization with a minimum of noise. A set of newly added dedicated balanced MC phono inputs enables balanced connection to the analog record player. By bringing out the full performance potential of each phono cartridge, the C-47 delivers a rich and deeply satisfying musical experience.

  • Low-noise fully balanced configuration
  • One dedicated balanced MC phono input and three sets of regular phono inputs
  • Separate settings memory for each input position
  • Balanced and line level output connectors
  • Balanced output polarity selector
  • Full mono construction
  • Separate toroidal power transformers for left and right channel
  • Low-noise regulated power supply circuitry unaffected by load fluctuations
  • High-accuracy phono equalizer with RIAA deviation of only ±0.3 dB
  • Load impedance settings for six MC and three MM phono cartridge types
  • 7-segment LED indicator shows load impedance
  • Gain selector for low-output phono cartridges
  • Built-in subsonic filter
  • Disc equalizer assembly using glass cloth fluorocarbon resin PCBs with low dielectric constant and low losses
  • Gold-plated printed circuit boards
  • Aluminum top plate with hairline finish
  • Elegant side panels with natural wood grain finish
