Much of what the Black Cube phono stages are well known and famous for is now available at an even more affordable price point! This effects parts and build quality as well as overall audio performance.
The Lehmann audio Black Cube Statement has been introduced to set standards again. Since the market introduction in 1995 the Black Cube phono stages by Lehmann audio have become cult objects for analog oriented music lovers. Countless positive reviews and awards on all five continents as well as an unrivalled customer satisfaction worldwide document this truly exceptional success.
The Lehmann audio Black Cube Statement phono stage is compatible with practically all available cartridges on the market from high output MM to MC. Apart from the standard switch settings there is one onboard slot that can be fitted with a custom impedance to supply perfect termination even for the most exotic cartridges.
The Black Cube Statement uses a double sided circuit board and comprises audiophile Burr Brown gain stages. The entirely passive RIAA equalization network is realized with high precision foil capacitors, for bass coupling even MKPs are used! Only Low ESR electrolytic caps are used throughout the circuit. All resistors are of the low noise metal film variety. The DIP-switches for gain and load settings have gold plated contacts. Power is provided through an external over dimensioned AC adaptor.
Because of the small outer dimensions the Black Cube SE can be placed next to the turntable. This minimizes loss due to cable lengths.
Lehmann audio always pays special attention to details: the case of both the audio section are made of nonmagnetic material (aluminium) and is equipped with a top cover coated with a special anti-resonance treatment.
