The Phonomena II+ Phono Preamplifier

The Phonomena series, designed by Michael Yee and Made in California, was first introduced 15 years ago. The Phonomena series with its dual-mono, discrete circuitry has represented the best sounding, most flexible phono stages retailing for under $1,000 . The original Phonomena began shipping in 1999! The Phonomena II, introduced in early 2008, has enjoyed a very successful 6 1/2 year run. Now the new Phonomena II+ with a similar chassis design to the Nova II will be available in both silver and black. It has a new circuit board design that yields even greater neutrality and musicality.

The Phonomena II+ features an improved chassis design, based on our more expensive Nova II, and is available in both black and silver finish. Boasting a new circuit board layout, the Phonomena II+ delivers discrete dual-mono signal paths, affording the listener more vibrant and dynamic music reproduction with a “blacker” background. Expertly made, inside and out, the Phonomena II+’s small footprint optimizes signal path integrity, while its black or silver finish options are sure to match the rest of your components. The Phonomena II+ is proudly Made in the USA and provides phenomenal sound and flexibility at an affordable price.


“We found [the Phonomena II] to be at the ‘top of the heap in its class’ and that it will help newcomers to vinyl discover just how much musical information is hiding in those grooves.” - TONEAudio

“The sound of the Phonomena II is alive and electrifying with its release of dynamic energy. For balance and value, the Phonomena II phono preamp is a stunner.” - LP Gear

“… for balance and value the Phonomena II is a stunner.” – Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, June 2009
