Details: Skoll is the highest performance, most flexible, least expensive balanced phono preamp available today. Put it in your system, have a seat, and adjust everything with the included remote control. You’ll give up nothing to the big-boy phono preamps out there—while keeping a much fatter wallet!
Over the Top Performance
Skoll is insanely quiet and accurate—and it does this with uber-simple, fully discrete, differential Class A zero feedback gain stages and a fully passive RIAA network, and zero op-amps. Skoll’s gain stage is compound JFET-BJT pair running on massive 64V rails for enhanced linearity and freedom from overload. The result is over 100dB signal to noise ratio for 40dB of gain, and up to 70dB of gain on tap.
Flexibility Without Penalty
Is your turntable single-ended or balanced? Don’t worry. There’s no performance penalty for either balanced or single-ended input or output. And with four gain levels, it’s ready for virtually any cartridge, from MM to MC to MI. Add relay-switched inputs for two turntables, plus relay-ladder loading for both R and C values, as well as a switchable passive LF filter, and Skoll delivers all the flexibility you need without penalty. We even went so far as to post-filter the relay power supplies and make the microprocessor turn off when not in use to keep Skoll exceptionally noise- and interference-free.
Adjust Everything from Your Listening Chair
Here’s where it gets good. Skoll includes a remote control, so you can adjust literally everything without getting out of your favorite listening chair. As in, you can: Select input: choose balanced or SE input Change gain: choose 40, 50, 60, or 70dB Change resistive loading: Choose 47k, or 10, 50, 100, or 150 ohms Change capacitive loading: choose 50, 100, 150, or 200pF Select LF filter: choose no LF filter, or engage the 2-pole/15 Hz passive network
