- Presenting the Aavik RIAA R180 / 280 / 580

Audiophiles love the vinyl sound – The challenge is to treat subtle sonic signals with utmost care
The Aavik phono stage has been developed to tease out the natural flow of music that is so typical of a vinyl-based sound source. The extensive research Aavik invested in gaining a deeper understanding of the major turntable and cartridge challenges shaped the platform for the engineering solutions embedded in the Aavik phono stage. The key strength of the Aavik RIAA is the sonic isolation of the ultra-low signals that emanate from the vinyl source, and the filtering out of any disturbing outside noise and vibration.

The Aavik RIAA / Phono stage – Lively and vivid performance

The Aavik RIAA section is based on a discrete, floating, balanced, ultra-low noise bipolar input circuit. The topology of a moving coil cartridge is a floating, balanced signal generator. Aavik has kept this topology throughout the phono stage. The input circuitry allows use of ultra-low noise bipolar transistors. By paralleling several transistor pairs, Aavik has created an absolutely quiet input section. The phono stage has 62 dB gain, and the cartridge loading is adjustable from 50 Ohm to 5 kOhm. The S/N ratio1) is 94 dB measured at 1 kHz.
The Aavik phono section will let you explore the amazing details and musical depths of your vinyl collection.

Cartridge loading adjustment – A perfect match for any MC

To get the highest efficiency from your turntable pick-up, the impedance can precisely be adjusted according to the individual MC cartridge.
