Optimizing the Delicate Phono Signal: Acoustic Signature Tango Reference

When it comes to designing amplifiers, one of the greatest challenges lies in processing the delicate phono signal. At Acoustic Signature, we understand this challenge, which is why we are proud to present the Tango Reference, our most elaborate phono preamplifier to date.

The Tango Reference is built with meticulous attention to detail, starting with its resonance-optimized and anti-magnetic chassis. Crafted from a solid block of 70mm thick, 22kg aluminum, this chassis exemplifies our commitment to delivering exceptional phono equalization. To ensure absolute current stability, we've placed the oversized power supply with a toroidal transformer on a separate board. Both assemblies are mounted on a specially shielded steel plate to eliminate any interference with the phono signal.

What sets the Tango Reference apart is our dedication to using only high-quality components that are individually selected. This meticulous selection process allows our semi-active RIAA equalization to achieve incredibly accurate values, deviating by less than 0.1 dB from the ideal curve. Furthermore, our elaborate single-ended output stage, designed in Class A, guarantees minimal distortion, low hum, and noise. These qualities form the foundation for high-resolution, captivating 3D imaging, and immersive musicality.

The Tango Reference offers flexible customization options as well. With selectable gain and a 90-step load impedance configuration, it provides optimal matching possibilities for any high-quality MM and MC cartridge. We believe that every detail matters when it comes to delivering the best possible audio experience, and the Tango Reference reflects our commitment to excellence in phono amplification.
