The Zphono XRM is Parasound’s latest phono preamplifier which combines high performance with unprecedented versatility and a price that fills the gap between our popular $200 Zphono and internationally acclaimed $1495 JC 3 Jr. We built the Zphono XRM for vinyl lovers willing to spend $1000-$1500 to upgrade their entry-level turntable/cartridge, but not interested in spending $800 or more to upgrade their phono preamp. Most phono preamps don’t give buyers what they really want: convenient on-the-fly impedance adjustment for MC cartridges, a switchable rumble filter, a stereo-mono switch and balanced XLR outputs. Many phono preamps use “wall warts” that are inferior to the Zphono XRM’s high-capacity, low-noise, linear power supply. The Zphono XRM is powerful proof of Parasound’s continuing support of the vinyl renaissance.
