Audio Research PH8

Audio Research introduced their new PH8 phono stage at CES. Slotted above the venerable PH6 and below the Reference Phono 2, the PH8 ($6995) features six steps of variable loading, which can be preset to chosen values at the factory. Using the ubiquitous 6H30 tubes, the PH8 employs the same type of capacitors found in the company's Reference 5 preamp.
