Musical Fidelity V90-LPS, Phono-Stage MM/MC

V90-LPS – Overview

MUSICAL FIDELITY is famous for its excellent phono preamplifiers. The delivery program includes no less than 5 devices that can meet every requirement for high-quality phono equalization.

The V90-LPS is the smallest and cheapest device from the hands of Antony Michaelson, but, as he says, it is essentially much more difficult to develop an inexpensive component with excellent sound than if money was (almost) no object plays. And so the V90-LPS carries all the constructive and sonic genes that have made MUSICAL FIDELITY a well-received address for audiophiles all over the world.

The V90-LPS is a phono stage designed to be the ideal interface between high-performance turntables and hi-fi amplifiers. Its signal path has been designed to provide a sonically clean and transparent connection for even the most complex music.

Housed in a slim, attractive housing, the V90-LPS is the perfect partner for a variety of turntables. Its separate moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC) inputs are individually tuned to get the best possible performance from each pickup.

V90-LPS – Technical background

To achieve this, special attention was paid to the critical elements of a phono stage: accuracy of RIAA equalization, low noise, low distortion and clipping margin.

MUSICAL FIDELITY is famous for its extremely accurate and balanced RIAA correction. The deviations are a maximum of ±0.25dB across the entire frequency range. The signal-to-noise ratio for both MM (better than 80 dB) and MC (better than 70 dB) is excellent and is virtually inaudible at any volume setting. The distortion of the V90-LPS is negligible - less than 0.010% across the entire audio frequency band. The very stable ground terminal enables safe, hum-free operation.

The V90-LPS not only offers a superior musical experience, but also amazing value for money. It's a beautiful piece of engineering and an affordable way to bring live music performance as close as possible to many listeners.

The virtues inherent in all MUSICAL FIDELITY devices, such as musical flow and emotionally gripping playback, are of course immediately noticeable with the V90-LPS. The trade press is also convinced of this.

The specialist magazine Audio writes: “Great box: Discrete circuits on a clearly structured circuit board, the layout of which is designed with meticulous care. Its sound impresses with its neutrality and broadband. Small but nice!"

The online magazine LowBeats concludes: “The MUSICAL FIDELITY V90-LPS is the ideal device for beginners and returners who are looking for a problem-free plug 'n play device with all-round features that sounds balanced and very decent and is therefore absolutely inexpensive. Here you are! It couldn’t be any easier or cheaper!”

The analogue lifestyle magazine Mint writes: “With the MUSICAL FIDELITY V90-LPS you definitely get increased dynamics, a silky, balanced high-frequency range and a clean, spacious image compared to integrated solutions. Dynamic meets width – highly effective and precisely calculated!”

And finally, the specialist magazine Stereo sums it up: “The MUSICAL FIDELITY V90-LPS fits the vast majority of inexpensive pickups and shows an astonishingly mature, structured sound that cannot be beaten for this price. The phono pre for ambitious beginners with a sound that cannot be beaten at this price. Dynamics, tonality, joy of playing? But hello! What was done here with the tiny voltages of the pickup for just under 180 euros cast questions about the price-performance ratio in a new light. We have grown very fond of the little box. It won't be any different for you. Conclusion: outstanding”
