Fully-balanced Phono Amplifier
Phono equalizing amplifier with dual monaural and fully-balanced input/output circuit design
The PE-505 is a phono equalizing amplifier with dual monaural and fully-balanced input/output circuits that support balanced MC input.
The development of the PE-505 was achieved by relying on TEAC’s audio technology expertise, focusing on recording and playback, with the goal of accurately reproducing the original intent of the recording producers. The PE-505 will amplify even very faint audio signals picked up by the cartridge, process them without coloration, and then deliver them faithfully in order to keep the listener as close as possible to the original sound that was played before it was engraved on the master disc.
The high precision RIAA correction circuit, as well as both DECCA and COLUMBIA curves are supported. In addition, selectable load resistance for MC cartridges and load capacity for MM cartridges are present; allowing users to optimize the settings for the type of cartridge used and for the condition of the record.
- Full differential inputs/outputs circuits
- High-precision RIAA EQ circuit achieves less than 0.05dB of deviation
- Individual EQ curves for monaural records and ones with EQ from DECCA and COLUMBIA
- Balanced MC input
- Switchable MC impedance (10, 22, 47, 100, 220, 470, 1kΩ)
- Switchable MM load-impedance capacity (0, 100, 220, 330pF)
- MC load-impedance measurement function
- Switchable MM/MC gain (High/Low)
- Subsonic detection
- Subsonic filter (17Hz, –24dB/oct.)
- MONO function that mixes left and right channels as a monaural channel
- DEMAG function that de-magnetizes cartridge
