Announcing the conrad-johnson TEA1 Series 2 phono preamplifier
In response to ongoing requests for a state of the art conrad-johnson phono preamplifier, we are pleased to offer the TEA1 Series 2 triode equalization amplifier.
Like the GATs2, the upgraded TEA1s2 benefits from improvements to the main audio power supply and increased capacitance.
The TEA1s2 is equipped with two phono inputs, one a direct input with 54 dB of gain and variable resistive and capacitive loading, the other fitted with premium step-up transformers for low output cartridges, to provide an overall gain of 66 dB. The TEA1s2 is optionally available as the TEA1s2b without the step-up transformers, having instead two direct inputs, one with variable loading and one with fixed loading.
Now available for immediate delivery, the TEA1s2 has a US Suggested Retail Price of $15,000 and $12,000 for the TEA1s2b.
