Through our use of the best audio coupling capacitors the World has to
offer, there is no DC at all across the pick-up cartridge, and therefore
no chance of magnetization.
Absolutely no frequency bending tricks are used. RIAA accuracy is within
0.5dB bottom to top. The 50kHz cutter compensation reverses the negative
effect of what is a natural single pole filter, thus adding to the
extreme sound-staging capability. Just make sure your system can make
use of it.
A period of approximately 3-4 weeks is
required for the circuit to "break-in", after which it is advisable to
leave the product on. After disconnection from the power they will
require a further few days break-in period to return to full
The full specification Era Gold V
includes a PSU1 power supply.
The power supply circuits do not employ
switch-mode or DC-DC conversion. The RF produced by such devices gets
into the signal path and modulates the signal, producing a set of pseudo
frequencies that sing along with the music. This may make a stage sound
rich, luscious and zingy, but it's not music.
