Musical Fidelity believes that aspects like RIAA correction and low distortion can make or break a phono stage’s effectiveness, so the Musical Fidelity V90-LPS MM/MC Phono Stage is their response. With an extremely low distortion and noise ratio, and accurate RIAA correction that extends up to 80kHz and beyond, it’s the perfect addition to your hi-fi system. You'll notice a difference in the audio quality once you connect your turntable, giving your collection a brand new lease on life.

Musical Fidelity V90-LPS Phono Stage Features:

  • An improved reduction of distortion keeps your audio as a clean reproduction
  • Keep the audio power path clear with high correction and low noise
  • Choose between moving magnet and moving coil turntable options

Product Information

The V90-LPS is a modestly priced, very high performance MM/MC phono stage with superb technical performance.

In Musical Fidelity’s opinion, there are five critical areas where a phono stage must achieve excellence:

  • RIAA correction
  • Correction above 20 kHz
  • Low distortion
  • Low noise
  • Good overload margin

The V90-LPS has extremely accurate RIAA correction and that extends up to 80 kHz and beyond. That may sound extreme, but there is a good deal of information above 20 kHz that needs correction. If it isn’t corrected, it will show itself as ringing and overshoot.

The V90-LPS’s distortion is very low. Noise ratio is extremely low and all but inaudible. Overload margin is easily adequate for any current cartridge. All in all, the V90-LPS accomplishes everything necessary for a phono stage.

There are many phono stages that are far more expensive and make extraordinary claims for their performance. In contrast, the modest V90-LPS just gets on with the job of doing everything you could reasonably expect from a phono stage.
