The P 0.2 primary had been developed only as an internal option, in order to have a solution for customers who listen to an LP only from time to time. Presented to the public for the first time at Munich High End Show in 2011, the response and the demand had been extremely positive, so we decided to have it officially in our range.
Nevertheless the P 0.2 may not be seen as a stopgap. A lot of know-how has been integrated in this product, in order to come up to our standard/requirement. Of course the price for such a procuct plays a deciding role – anyhow a lot of basically details of the “great brother”, the P2, could have been adapted. The main demand however always stays the same: to reproduce music as lifelike and pure as possible. The most important basis also here: excellent components and a reasonable power supply.
Irrespective of the favourable price other, additionally measures for decoupling (e.g. bases or feet by Audio Exklusiv) will be able to optimize the sound.
This can also be applied for the current supply: Even though the power input has been provided with a high quality line filter an additional line filtering can be useful in some regions.
The P 0.2 is a true MM/MC-phono-preamplifier in transistortechnology with a complex and discreet difference-FET-inputlevel. Similar to the P 2 even here our special developed DC-controller, which allows working without any coupling capacitor, has been applied. Above all for entrance-products this solution is very unusual – but the tonal results convince.
We set especially value on the RIAA-distortion. Very often such compact-solutions show an optimising in interaction with the input level for only one input-branch (generally MC) – the other one is more acceptable than rather perfect. Our optimising and adjustment allow a similar good quality of both branches with the consequence that the often appearing bass decrease could have been avoided.
The P 0.2 has got very high loading capacities, what ensures – together with the extremely short signal ways – an airy, fast and nevertheless a colourful sound pattern, which additionally shows an excellent fine- and rough dynamic and a great openness.
But also operating comfort and flexibility are of great importance. Gain as well as impedance and capacity can be varied and so the working with many different cartridges is possible.
