Tango Mk3

Acoustic Signature

The Acoustic Signa­ture Tango MK3 phono preamp­lifier defi­nitely plays like a “big one”: The reso­nance-opti­mized, anti-mag­netic chassis is made of a solid alu­minum block. The double-sided circuit board is exclu­sively equip­ped with quality compo­nents from esta­blished brand manu­factu­rers and lay­outed in SMD design to keep the signal paths as short as possible.

In order to ensure abso­lute power stability and no risk of inter­feren­ces with the phono signal, our over-dimen­sioned power supply is external. The RIAA equa­liza­tion of the Tango MK3 deli­vers extre­mely accurate values with a maxi­mum devia­tion of less than 0.2 dB from the ideal curve! The com­plex circuit design features addi­tional local elec­trolytic capa­citors for stabi­lization and an effec­tive sub­sonic filter that guaran­tees minimal distortion as well as maxi­mum hum and noise reduction. With its selec­table gain and DIP switch for load impe­dance confi­gu­ration the Tango MK3 also offers a variety of adjust­ment options for many MC and all MM cartridges.
