Agena is truly a state-of-the-art phono stage. Any magnetic phono cartridge can be precisely matched to the Agena’s input circuitry, ensuring maximum retrieval of detail and depth. Music is presented with fluidity and transfixing reality.
The multiple inputs are fully adjustable in real-time. Each input has two separate head-shell / arm settings to allow precise matching for up to six phono cartridges, each being selectable at the touch of a button.
In addition to the single-ended RCA (cinch) and fully balanced XLR analogue outputs, a reference quality analogue to digital converter feeds a USB output, allowing broadcast quality archiving to computer hard-drives or other digital media.
Real time record monitoring is possible from the USB-connected computer via dedicated RCA (cinch) analogue and SPDIF digital outputs.
Agena features a unique ‘Sleep Mode’ which, when selected, enables the unit to switch off its control circuitry, LEDs and display automatically when not required. In this mode, Agena becomes a purely analogue component, with no interference from microprocessors etc. in this way, the analogue signal path is optimised for the very highest performance and signal fidelity.
User features include mono, mute and high and low frequency filters.
