    Detailed info....

    Built in California, the Nova II is a battery powered phono stage with incredible flexibility and performance. Based on the discrete, dual mono circuit developed by designer Michael Yee for the SuperNova, the Nova has rear panel accessible switches for gain and loading. It features 2 rechargeable internal NiMH dual mono battery packs with Smart Sensing auto recharge feature. All AC and charging circuits automatically disconnect when listening in battery mode. The Nova features a cool proximity detection switch on the front panel with status LEDs for changing mode.

    "Whether it's the Rite of Spring or Graceland, the Nova II kicks, slams, and drives yet retains its underlying grace and composure. The options for loading and level make it a snap optimally to match any pickup out there, and its quietness (it operates in both AC and battery mode) is extraordinary. Though reliability was never an issue - PS's past units have performed flawlessly week after month after year - the earlier built-in-a-garage looks have given way to a svelte new profile, and a super value has now become a super-duper one." - The Absolute Sound, October 2013

    The Musical Surroundings Nova II is a complete phonograph preamplifier with RIAA equalization that amplifies the output signal of a phono cartridge, either moving coil or moving magnet, up to a nominal "line level". The Nova II may be used with a receiver or an integrated amplifier. If you use separate components, a line level control unit (preamp) is required before the power amp, since there is no independent volume control for the Nova II. The Nova's power supply is internal and connnects to the wall with the supplied wall mount transformer.

    Specifications:
    Gain Switches: 40, 44, 46, 48, 50, 51.5, 52.7, 53.7, 56, 57.5, 58.4, 59.4, 60dB
    Input Loading Switches: 200pF, 300pF, 30, 40, 50, 59, 80, 100, 121, 150, 243, 280, 380, 475, 660, 1k, 2k, 50k, 100k Ohms

    No to derail, but with so much flexibility, one wonders what could possibly top it to warrant the sale?

    Way out of my range, GLWS.

    Good question. The answer is the new Musical Surroundings Nova III at twice the price I'm selling this for.
