Intro sale is $249.00
Our new Phono .5 phono stage will set a new performance per dollar standard. It handles moving magnets at 40dB of gain and moving coils with 60dB of gain. It is quiet with exceptional linearity, dynamics and a signal to noise like $1,500.00 competition.
Bam. $249 just took you to audio heaven. LSA’s new .5 phono preamplifier is MM and MC, solid-state, super quiet, and delivers the goods. Plus, no goofy wall wart power supply to keep track of, it uses a standard 15A IEC cord. (hint, hint: once you get used to the buzz the .5 provides, grab your favorite $125 power cord and get a little more juice. Sorry, the habit never ends.) Inside, the .5 is full of components – not air. It sports a healthy toroid power transformer and a tidy circuit board with the main circuitry. There’s also a pair of DIP switches to change from MM to MC mode. MC is a 100 ohm input with 60dB of gain – great for a long list of great performing budget MCs. The casework is solid aluminum, not plastic or stamped metal, creating a product that you’ll be proud to put on your rack.
But the best part is just how musically rewarding the .5 is. We’ve got a full review in the works, but the short story is awesome. The LSA .5 Phono is a great place to spend time playing records. How can you not love it?

Voyager Phono One
Projected retail is $1495.00
Our new LSA 2 box phono stage, the Voyager Phono One, was designed by our new design team and is expected to ship by late June.
The two box Phono One is a moving magnet/moving coil phono stage with rear mounted dip switches for gain, capacitance and impedance. It has a front mounted rumble filter for warped records. It is extremely quiet with excellent dynamics and great transparency. We expect it to set the standard for price vs performance in a reasonably priced phono stage.
Discrete differential JFET input
Multiple parallel JFETs for lower noise figures
