Hello There,
The fourth model in iFi’s ZEN Air Series is a phono stage that’s ideal for those who love vinyl records –perhaps returning to the format, as many have done in recent years, or discovering the joy of vinyl for the first time. Not everyone has the funds to invest in a high-end turntable; but that’s fine, because an entry-level deck from the likes of Pro-ject or Rega can deliver fabulous sound – especially when paired with a good phono stage, to make the most of all the detail the needle digs from a record’s grooves.

That’s where the ZEN Air Phono comes in – not only does it offer excellent performance with both MM and MC cartridges, it also delivers an ultra-low noise performance that’s measurably and audibly the cleanest and clearest at its price point – just like its big brother, the award-winning ZEN Phono. This ensures that the listener hears every drop of detail against a super-quiet background.

Technical highlights:
-MM(40dB) and MC(64dB) compatible
- Single-ended topology
- Uses the same, high-quality parts as ZEN Phono
- Based on OVA2637A op-amps custom made for the iFi Audio
- Very clean power supply based on 1,2MHz switching mode power supply
- Subsonic filter
