Kinki is a standalone high quality moving magnet phono preamplifier.

It’s housed in a very compact anodised aluminium enclosure that occupies 59 mm in height, 103 mm in width and 180 mm in depth.

It is available in a European, a British and a North American version.

Kinki is our second best phono preamplifier. It received a rave review by the american HiFi magazine Stereophile in October 2011 and was added to their list of Recommended Components. Many construction details and sound qualities are similar to those of our reference phono preamplifier, Slipsik. But the price of Kinki is around half.

To ensure that each Kinki performs optimally, it’s listened to and compared with a reference before being packed down and shipped to the customer.
