Da Vinci Audio Labs of Switzerland
extends its outstanding product range to more music lovers through a
more affordable preamplifier with phono stage ... the Nifty
preamplifier with phono stage.
Elegant rendition and styled to impress,
Class A, solid state, with LCR RIAA and own separate MC Transformer and
output Transformer Potentiometer.
DaVinciAudio designed this very special
moving coil transformer to reproduce a superb soundstage, and accuracy
of the original performance. In short to bring you closer to the
fascination of music.
MM PhonoPreAmplifier NIFTY:
This single ended, class A, solid state PhonoPreAmp "NIFTY“
with LCR RIAA and Transformer potentiometer brings you closer to the
pure fascination of music.
1. Single ended class A operating point
2. Input gain switchable
3. Output transformer potentiometer
4. Own high quality special hand-wound
5. Special for DaVinciAudio developed c-cores
NIFTY MC Transformer:
The NIFTY MC transformer
can be purchased separately.
1. Own high quality special hand-wound
2. Switchable gain 20 or 26dB
3. Switchable impedance
4. RX jack for impedance fine adjustment
5. Input RCA
6. Output RCA
7. Ground jack
It gives two impedances, related to low and high gains selected.
At 26dB gain, one can adjust 3 Ohm, 5 Ohm, 10 Ohm, 20 Ohm.
At 20dB gain one can adjust 40 Ohm, 80 Ohm, 160 Ohm and 400 Ohm.
The transformer is flexible and will cater to any cartridge impedance,
no limits. Rather than put in loads of switches (which will affect the
sound) for different impedance settings, one can cater to other
cartridges whose impedances are not in the list through the RX plug
fine adjustment. This is the method where one is able to use resistors
without having to go inside the preamplifier, and eliminates any
There are two extra RCA plugs (left and right) near the RCA outputs of
the transformer, and are called RX plugs.
Just ask someone to solder a resistor into two RCA plugs (left and
right), and this RCA plugs with resistors are plugged into the RX plugs
in the transformer and that's it. There is a formula for which resistor
to use which is provided.
If one needs certain impedance values, we can also get it provided from
