Jazz Club Vinyl and 78 Restoration Phono Preamplifier

The Jazz Club phono preamplifier allows you to restore the musical glory and original tonal balance of older records (78's, early LP's and singles) and provides the highest fidelity reproduction of modern RIAA recordings. The use of the miraculous Era Gold Mk V phono preamp as its base assures supreme musicality with records old and new.

Michael Fremer in the Stereophile June 2002 issue (Vol. 25 No. 6) states "I couldn't believe the presence in Ella's voice, or the lack of noise from the old shellac..." Since then the Jazz Club has become a Stereophile Recommended Component (October 2002, April 2003 and October 2003), a venerable currency it still holds today. It has garnered other publicized recommendations as well. From across the sea for example, Gramophone Magazine's Caroline Osborne confirmed the Jazz Club's exceptional properties. Smoother, more open, lower surface noise, better tonal depth, clarity and instrumental separation (even with mono records!). And to cap it all, it sounded better than CDs of the same session! She states "LPs via the Jazz Club were the clear winner...This is a fine phono stage indeed..." (Gramophone, March 2003 p111.)

When most broadcasters, archivists and record playing end-users dub old records onto digital media or tape, they use any utility RIAA phono stage and then pass the signal through a graphic equalizer or digital equivalent and a de-clicking device. Most of it is done by ear and is therefore not exactly true to the original. Passing through so many stages also is the wrong way to preserve the feel, content and clarity of the music.

The Jazz Club vinyl and 78 RPM restoration phono preamplifier is primarily an exceptional phono preamlifer on which virtually all of the known equalization characteristics can be selected, equalizing the music accurately and in one go so as not to lose aby valuable information. The Jazz Club is based on the miraculous Era Gold Mk V phono preamp. In fact, the Jazz Club is an Era Gold with the addition of a switchable equalization (EQ) board with 15 EQ pre-sets and a different casing and panel. Its use of a very fast circuit also has the property that de-accentuates clicks and pops and thus de-clicking can be left out altogether.

Results you can hear and enjoy
The result is simply termed as "near master tape or acetate quality." It is sadly something you will not hear from CDs mastered as above or on the radio unless they use the Jazz Club vinyl and 78 restoration phono preamplifier for re-recording.

Individual Works of Art—Hand built and Tested
Below is an internal view of the Jazz Club showing the heavy duty gold plated phono sockets, Era Gold main board, and EQ switching board containing 24 high speed polypropylene capacitors.

Each Jazz Club is an individual work of precison and art. Each is handbuilt and the finished product is tested by the designer himself to ensure that it meets his exacting specification and performance standard.

The Jazz Club vinly and 78 RPM restoration phono preamp is supplied with the PSU1 outboard power supply with a 2-pin American plug for 110-120V operation. The PSU1 is included in the price.

By varying the positions of the two front panel switches, the Jazz Club may be made to restore the tonal balance of the labels tabulated below.
