GCPH phono stage


#1

Just received July monthly news letter this morning. and know about “NuWave Phono Converter”. something that I don’t understand after reading about “NuWave Phono Converter”. maybe I am a new comer and don’t know more about PS product. hehee…

Doesn’t anyone of you can tell me what is GCPG phono stage?



Right now I am using PWT and PWD markII with Bridge. if I use “NuWave Phono Converter” to play my old old Systemdex, the setting==> can be linked with “NuWave Phono Converter” and PWDII with Bridge together?? by using “I squared S”??



very exciting after reading, I hope I can play my old old Sytemdex player and let my old old Systemdex alive…

The quick answer is yes - it has I2S out so you’ll do what I do now - play all my vinyl directly through my PWD! It’s fantastic.



The GCPH was our old phono preamplifier http://www.psaudio.com/products/audio/perfectwave-accessories/gcph-phono/

Can the new phono stage drive an amp directly?

@nile49 - i guess you would not be able to control volume without using preamp/PWD


#5

what will be the difference between NuWave Phono Converter direct to pre-amp and NuWave Phono Converter to PerfectWav DAC to pre-amp???


#6

It does not have an internal volume control, that is correct. The difference between going to a preamp or going to the PWD is that one is a pure analog chain (to the preamp) and the other is a digital chain. Sound wise there’s almost no difference.

Would it be available in Hong Kong in Sep as in US? Or we need to wait for some time?

@ellen_ng

Please pardon me for asking but looking at your name I am curious.

Are you female?

I ask because we have long been awaiting some “lady” members to our group.

My late dad was a HiFi lover, and he left over batch of equipment for me, but most of them are completely or partly out of order, or outdated. In 5 years time, I just finished renew of all equipment.
