Phono Stage Option Board Pre owned
Gaining popularity these days but still relatively rare is the provision of “Option Boards” for line stage pre-amps and integrated amplifiers. Accuphase started along this route more than 25 years ago, and as such can be considered a trend setter. The idea with option boards is that a preamp or amplifier can be configured with a high quality (in the case of Accuphase at least) phono stage, like this one, or even a DAC, should you require or desire one. The system is then free of the clutter of yet another component, associated cableing and power supplies. A neat and high quality solution. Accuphase option boards are extremely rare as preowned items. Not because they are unreliable, far from it, but rather they tend to stay in main unit once fitted. This AD-20 is then, somewhat rare. Will suit almost all single slot Accuphase Integrated Amps and Line stages, but a good idea to ask us first just to make sure.
