Avid HiFi - Pellar Phono Stage


Enquire about this product

Directly related to the high priced Pulsus the Pellar offers a AVID phonostage at an extremely reasonable price point.

Offering an incredible feature set for this price range - there are three gain options for MM, low and high gain MC cartridge types.

As with its bigger relation this is an un-balanced design, but still keeping noise exceptionally low, even with an intergated power supply.
Distortion across the audio spectrum is exceptionally low and with impressive headroom, a character common to all our electronic designs.

Pellar retains the high-specification components of the Pulsus, including the gold-plated RCA connections and with the gain settings still easily adjustable from the underside of the casework.

"The AVID Pellar becomes my definite contender for one of the audio bargains of the year and an easy, suggestion for a friend who wants to rediscover the magic residing in those black vinyl grooves, that won’t break the bank."   – Lawrence Devoe, ToneAudio

Cartridge resistance value is set to 47k, suitable for MM cartridges. There are additional RCA connections on the rear panel to allow customised restistance loading plugs to be used, so that any restance value can be set for any cartridge. This offers exceptional flexibility and precision.

The passive RIAA (with Neumann HF correction) circuit using high-end capacitors is retained, helping maintain linearity of reproduction.
The new internal regulated power supply provides refined smooth power to maintain its poise.

In keeping with our high standards, the Pellar is completely manufactured within our own facility. Everything from PCB assembly, testing and quality control to the high quality casework ensures a desirable sounding product with exceptional value.
