The sound of Rupert Neve comes to your vinyl collection.
The Fidelice Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier is a singular achievement in analog sound reproduction. Based around the classic amplifier topologies that have made Rupert Neve’s microphone preamplifiers the consistently obvious choice for the world’s recording engineers since the early 1970’s, the Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier’s MM and MC gain stages have each been painstakingly tailored for an enthralling listening experience with unparalleled accuracy, depth and expressiveness.
Purpose-designed, low-noise discrete Class-A amplifiers are implemented throughout the signal path for both MM and MC cartridges. The passive RIAA filter utilizes exceptional low-tolerance componentry, selectable capacitance for the MM input, and a selectable 18dB / octave Rumble Filter with a corner frequency at 11.4Hz.
BRING YOUR RECORD COLLECTION TO LIFE
Regardless of whether you are listening to pristine classical recordings or the heaviest rock, getting the most out of your turntable system can be a challenge. The Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier is designed to coax out every detail from your pressings and turntable and provide your amplifiers with a complete and unadulterated signal, so you get the most from your vinyl collection.
Both the moving magnet and moving coil gain settings have been optimized to enhance the performance of the cartridge. These Phono stages use carefully-implemented discrete Class-A designs that utilize the highest performance JFETs and BJTs, honed over countless hours of listening and comparison.
The resulting sound quality is technically - and musically - exceptional. The RIAA curve is matched to better than 0.15dB, and frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz is better than +/-0.1dB. Even at 10Hz and 120kHz, there is less than a single decibel of deviation. Dynamic range is a powerful 101.58dB (MM path), and EIN is an exceptionally low -129dBV (MC path).
Beyond its technical feats however, it is the immersive listening experience that sets the Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier apart. The soundstage brings out a stunning three-dimensionality from recordings with a combination of a rich low end, pristine clarity throughout the crucial midrange, and a delicately sweet high-end. These are hallmarks of Rupert Neve’s vintage and modern recording equipment, and are exemplified in the Precision Series.
CONTROL YOUR TONE
While the Fidelice Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier has an intentionally minimal feature set, there are several options that can adapt the phono stage to your system.
The left-hand switch inserts an 18dB / octave Rumble Filter with a corner frequency at 11.4Hz to remove extremely low-frequency artifacts from the signal, saving your amplifiers and speakers from exerting extra energy in replicating unnecessary sounds below that frequency.
Both moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC) signal paths are included such that the Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier can be used with virtually any cartridge. The MM setting provides an input impedance of 47kOhms, selectable capacitance at 110pF or 220pF to serve a variety of MM cartridges, and 40dB of gain. The MC setting provides an input impedance of 100 Ohms, capacitance of 220pF, and gain of 60dB.
With an elegant mahogany-accented aluminum chassis and sound quality revered by the entire recording industry for generations, the Precision Phono Pre-Amplifier brings true studio sound to your turntable system: always true to the source, but with the hint of magical musicality that only Rupert Neve’s equipment can deliver.

When Taron and Andrew Lissimore started headphones.com, they wanted to create the headphone store they wished existed. As headphone enthusiasts, they wanted a store with 365-day returns.
So they decided they were going to try to make 365-day returns work - no matter how ridiculous it sounded to their wives.
Years later, they're still doing it, and their wives still think they're crazy.
So take some time to get to know your new gear. We want you to enjoy your purchase for years, not just a few weeks. If you're not satisfied, you can return items in like-new condition for up to 365-days.
How To Make a Return
1. Follow the link below.
To get the return process started, you just need to click this link. Enter your order number as well as e-mail address to get it started and after that just follow the steps outlined in the portal (note open-box, special order and sale items are not eligible).

Return Policy Abuse
In order to provide a 365-day return policy, we need to take abuse seriously.
We monitor a buyers ratio of purchased to returned products. If it exceeds an internal threshold they will no longer be allowed to place orders with Headphones.com. This includes customers who spread returns across multiple accounts.
We made our return policy to help you find gear you feel great about for a long time. Most people use it exactly as intended. We don't want the handful of people who attempt to abuse our policy to ruin it for everyone else.
If you paid with a cryptocurrency, the returned amount will be equal to the USD equivalent of your payment on CoinGecko.com at the time the refund is processed. The return will be made in the currency of your original order.
After You've Made a Return
Each return is inspected at our warehouse. During busy times these inspections may take a few extra days.
Refund or Credit
We will notify you by email when your refund or credit has been processed. It may take a few business days for a refund to appear in your account. This is determined by your financial institution.
If you still have questions, please email email@example.com and an advisor will be happy to help.
One of the key things we pride ourselves on is our customer service and one of the most important aspects of our customer service is getting you your product on time! But not only do we want to get it to you on time, we want to make sure we are using a reliable courier so the experience for you is the best possible. That is why we ship all of our orders with UPS.
While couriers like USPS are tempting because of their low cost, we have found that they are not a good experience for our customers. Nobody wants their package to not be delivered and then have to spend an hour on hold with the local post office trying to get information. To that end, all of our packages are shipped signature required with UPS to make sure your package arrives in your hands safe and sound and if there are any issues, your time isn't wasted.
However, if you are looking to ship to PO Box or APO address, we can definitely accommodate your shipping needs!
