I am nearing completion of the enclosure design of our new PH 9.0 phono stage with external supply. Price is to be $2900 retail with optional fully balanced XLR transformer coupled outs as an add cost option.
I will post images of my final proposed aesthetic design and layout for feedback. I am balancing cost/performance with aesthetic design. As most of you know, often the biggest portion of a products end cost is based on the cost of the enclosure. The goal here is a high value, high performance phono stage that offers as much of the PH 150 performance as possible at a much lower price. The looks needs to be clean and elegant as well as in keeping with the rest of our product line. However, I am also balancing the cost of the enclosure in order to post MOST of the money in the design itself and hence sonics!
