Innovative and advanced phonostage from van den Hul. “The Grail” is a really a dulcet phonostage, specifically designed bearing ultimate performance and reliability in mind.

Two Moving Coil (MC) Inputs via RCA

Feature list:

    • a specific designed Phonograph preamplifier section

    • Phonograph RIAA – equalization with coils only, no sound impairing capacitors in filters

    • special printed circuit board material with gold conducting paths

    • the printed circuit board has a special seating to evade microphonics

    • special equipment foot made of selected wood avoids mechanical energy storage

    • low noise moving coil input stage, no annoying noise even with low-output cartridges

    • automatic adapting input stage for moving coil cartridges, no matching resistors needed

    • possibility to compensate phonograph cartridge sensitivity (level adjustment)

    • cut out of coupling capacitors in the signal path as far as possible

    • strictly separated amplifier sections and circuit layout deliver a very natural soundstage

    • inputs: two MC phono inputs

    • a shielded transformer is placed in an external housing to avoid hum and EMI noise

    • power supply with Gyrators for each amplifier stage deliver very high noise cancellation

    • the external transformer is available for different mains voltages

Designed to provide high-end audio, “The Grail” will deliver you outstanding sound quality with nearly every available modern phonograph cartridge.
