Unfortunately no, not this year. I will not be even able to visit  :(

I am retooling the product line, and making organizational changes: I was in research mode for too long (can't blame me, it's a lot of fun) now I have too many ideas in the head and prototypes in hands and need to get them out and make products quicker. Without compromising reliability.... I kinda like not having units to repair  :)

Well, that stinks.   :(

Will you have a replacement for the Phono-1 MkII though?   :hyper:

No plans to replace Phono-1 - it seems to meet and exceed customers' expectations in this price range and I would like to keep it that way. Always good to have happy and pleasantly surprised customers  :D

At some (yet undefined) point there may be another version, in addition to Phono-1. It will reside on a different price level and still offer excellent value. But some other projects need to materialize first.

Does that mean new preamps or power amps are possibilities?

A preamp with full set of features is in the plans - I am reconsidering the "puristic approach" and thinking of adding "conveniences" such as tone controls, balance, mono switch (different options), and some other stuff that will be somewhat unique, so I would prefer to keep that card close to the vest for now.

The main reason is that all of that can be added with very little sacrifice in the sound quality, while increasing versatility and joy of use. The part of the concept has already been tested through my work for Symbol Audio
