The new Limetree PHONO II from Lindemann takes the highly-rated and awarded Limetree PHONO and further improves the internal circuitry for improved performance, especially when connected to an MC pickup. An added benefit for MC users is the customisable load impedance settings with the following values; 50R, 66R, 80R, 100R, 200R & 400R.

Lindemann Limetree MM/MC Phono II Stage

The new Limetree PHONO II from Lindemann takes the highly-rated and awarded Limetree PHONO and further improves the internal circuitry for improved performance, especially when connected to an MC pickup. An added benefit for MC users is the customisable load impedance settings with the following values; 50R, 66R, 80R, 100R, 200R & 400R.

The Limetree PHONO II is Lindemann's statement for all vinyl friends. A high-grade preamp for your pickup cartridge. Using the latest technologies and parts they reanimated a circuit design from the tube amp era. The result is absolutely worth listening to! Look forward to an exceptional sound experience!

The Limetree PHONO II has two discrete input stages which are perfectly tuned for the respective pickup type. This ensures maximum sound quality with MM and MC cartridges. Installation is as easy as 1-2-3: simply plugin and you’re ready to go. Only for MC there is a variable setting of the input impedance between 50 and 400 ohms. The measured values of the PHONO are exceptionally good all the way. Noise and distortion figures are close to the resolution limit.

To put it briefly: sound quality and technology of this amplifier play in a class of their own. Rediscover your LPs!

Features

The Limetree PHONO II falls back on a circuit design from the classic tube amp era. But this concept is a completely new reinterpretation using the latest technologies and components.

The dual-stage circuitry with a passive RIAA equalization network uses the best J-FET amplifiers, which are currently available, and ultra precision resistors and capacitors from Japan.

The purely passive equalization has a significant advantage: the distortions in the bass range are much lower than with the usually applied circuits.

For a power supply, Lindemann use a “medical grade“ wall plug transformer which ensures a particularly good isolation from line disturbances. Together with the elaborated onboard filtering and special voltage regulators, they were able to realize an exceptionally low-noise power supply with a ripple voltage below 10 µV.

About Lindemann

For the development of their products, Lindemann can fall back on a wealth of experience gathered in 25 years of building loudspeakers, amplifiers and digital sources. At Lindemann, new products are created by means of the most advanced design tools and measuring methods. In doing so, they use, of course, the latest and best technologies on the market. Yet the sonic outcome is always of prime importance; their ears are the key measuring instrument!

A careful optimization of all circuit details and a target-oriented selection of top-grade parts build the basis for every genuine high-end product. It takes a lot of meticulous work at Lindemann to understand all sound influences and optimize the result accordingly. On the highest level real progress in sound quality can only happen through a deep insight into the correlations and a consistent implementation in the circuit design.

Lindemann products are developed by a passionate and experienced team of engineers in Germany and made exclusively by ISO-certified firms all over Europe to meet the high quality demands of their customers. Prior to packaging and shipping, every single device is put to a thorough final inspection.

But above all stands the passion for music and well-engineered technology. Only when merged this way the result are products that are entirely convincing.
