True reference high-end phono stage set despite their small sizes.  Built on the multi-awarded Era Gold V's technology.

 

Listen and compare to the "best" out there. 

 

Why two boxes ?  The answer in its most simple form is that the less stress the MM phono stage section gets, it can then be realistically expected to deliver a good musical performance.

Era Gold Reflex Specifications :

Burn-In Time

A period of approximately 1 week 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 performance.

 

BURN-IN TIME is the period the circuit requires to be left powered-on from new for the entire circuit to stabilize. Until then performance will not be as advertised.

Phono Connectors Heavy Gold Plated
Gain 41.5 db (118)
Maximum Input 45mV rms
Nominal Output 472  mV rms
Maximum Output 5.3 V rms
Input Resistance 47 kOhms
Input Capacitance 220 pF
Output will drive 10k Ohms
Noise -68dB CCIR q-pk 20Hz-20kHz
Distortion 0.02%
RIAA Accuracy 0.5 dB
Frequency Response 5Hz - 150kHz
Channel Balance 0.2 dB
Channel Separation 64 dB
Power Supply

PSU1-24 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.

Casing

Unique construction aluminium extrusion base and top; 3.2mm thick front and rear panels; Satin silver anodised aluminium finish

Size (approx) 170 x 117 x 50 (mm)

 

Elevator EXP Specifications:

Design & Technology

The complete lack of flywheel effect or hysterisis of transformers and correct cartridge matching, combine with the fast low noise video bandwidth of the EXP to provide an award winning performance.

 

Transformless, wide-bandwidth

Burn-In Time

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 performance.

 

BURN-IN TIME is the period the circuit requires to be left powered-on from new for the entire circuit to stabilize. Until then performance will not be as advertised.

Phono Connectors Heavy Gold Plated
Gain 24 db
Amplifiers

video amplifiers that provide the bandwidth required

Input Referred Noise

-130dB rms - like a studio mcrophone amp - i.e. hiss will be below the noise of a clean record

Distortion

less than 0.01% (almost near non-existent (including the test oscillator's 0.003% distortion)

Cartridge Loading

External.  Available via two front panel gold plated contact switches.

 

23, 30, 100, 840, 1000, 5100, 47kHz

Power Supply

PSU1-24 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.

 

DC coupling is used throughout each Elevator step-up transformer-less head amplifier. The zero volt rail is internally generated providing an absolutely clean ground. This allows the use of a single sided supply, and a simple 24 volt battery supply can therefore be substituted by the user for extremely critical listening.

Components

Components used in the Elevator are to the highest professional standards, including FR4 epoxy resin single and double sided plated through hole printed circuit boards, C&K gold plated contact switches, Analogue Devices semiconductors, tantalum capacitors, Elna audio grade capacitors, Wima low inductance high speed polypropylene and silver/mica capacitors. Connections are by heavy gold plated, Teflon insulated deluxe phono jacks, and an additional arm earth is provided for convenience.

Casing
