Chord Electronics Symphonic Moving Coil Phonostage

As the flagship MC phono stage in the Choral range, the Symphonic redefines performance standards with its array of advanced features. Leveraging the latest high-frequency power supply technology, it maximises the potential of vinyl playback, aligning its performance with the esteemed Choral range, home to the renowned DAVE DAC/preamp.

Unmatched Flexibility and Precision

The Symphonic offers unparalleled flexibility with a multitude of input impedance and gain options, along with both balanced and unbalanced input configurations for cartridges. This versatility allows seamless integration of high-quality turntables into Chord systems, empowering users to tailor their setup to their exact preferences. All settings are easily accessible via external controls, illuminated by LEDs for intuitive operation.

Performance and Versatility

Equipped with a rumble filter, the Symphonic effectively eliminates low-frequency rumble signals, ensuring pristine audio reproduction on both channels. With the option to toggle the Rumble filter on or off, users can conform to the RIAA curve without IEC roll-off, maintaining fidelity across the spectrum. Additionally, the Symphonic adapts to different tone arm wirings, offering both unbalanced and balanced operation modes to suit diverse setups.

Seamless Integration with Chord Amplification

Designed to complement Chord's high-calibre amplification, including models like the CPA 2500, CPA 3000, CPA 5000, and CPA 8000, the Symphonic delivers exceptional performance and precision. Whether in unbalanced or balanced mode, it ensures uncompromising audio quality, elevating the vinyl listening experience to new heights.
