All, I am starting this thread for general discussion of LIO. There will be other threads specific to particular LIO modules that will follow, but this will be a fine place to post general questions about LIO. You can find a lot of information on our website: www.vinnierossi.com The PRODUCTS menu has a drop down to different LIO configurations (DAC, Phonostage, Preamp, Integrated Amp), a "Custom configure LIO" (make it exactly the way you want!), as well as a sub menu for the various LIO modules to learn about them in more detail. For example, LIO DHT PRE: DHT PRE - Vinnie Rossi Audio This is our Directly Heated Triode linestage module for LIO that was introduced last Spring. Many LIO customers upgraded to it and received 100% trade-in credit for their RVC + Tubestage, or AVC/Tubestage modules. If you want to learn about our Patent Pending ultracapacitor power supply that occupied half of the entire LIO, check out the LIO Technology page: LIO Technology for the Audiophile Most of the pages on our website have tabs, such as a tab for Features, Specifications, Options. You'll also see a FORUM link on our menu at the top. When you click it, it takes you to our forum on Audiocircle.com. It has over 80 separate threads, each with many posts, about all things LIO since 2014. So why the forum here on CA, you ask? While some of you are present on both forums, I know there are many who are not and I wanted to branch out a little. I've been a fan of CA for a while now and have visited here every now and then, and decided to start a sponsored forum for 2017. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for participating here! Vinnie
micro iPhono2 Only everything has been improved Southport, UK – 25th April 2016 The best just made the quantum leap The original iPhono was the ‘benchmark’ phono stage <US$1,000. Only retaining the same design philosophy, we went back to the beginning and designed a ground-up, all-new iPhono2. The design, circuitry and parts are all far-reaching: Ultra-wide gain range – 36dB to astonishing 72dB; suits any cartridge. Whisper quiet – SNR of >86dB, an impressive 10dB quieter than the original. Latest AMR trickle-down technology: revised Class A, TubeState® circuit for unrivalled linearity. DirectDrive® Servo-less ‘DC infinity’ circuit. No capacitor AND no DC-Servo means zero added noise and distortion, there is no purer audio signal path. The sonic performance of the iPHONO2 when partnered with any cartridge from the Shure V-15 through to the Koetsu Coralstone is something to behold. Features Ultra-wide gain from 36dB up to 72dB 6 precision stereo EQ curves (±0.2dB) Latest AMR trickle-down technology: revised Class A, TubeState® circuitry DC-Infinity circuit, DirectDrive® Servo-less circuit Reference class parts quality from Elna Silmic to Silver Mica capacitors iPower (15V) included, ‘quieter than battery’ power supply Specifications Freq.

Specifications are subject to change without notice. The retail price of the micro iPHONO2 is US$499 (ex-tax) or Euro569/£435 (incl VAT). Thank you!
