Lehmann Audio Black Cube MM/MC Phono Stage
A cost-effective MC/MM phonostage with an out board power supply.
Lehmann Audio is a new German HiFi Company with ambitious plans: design and build hi-end level components at an affordable price. Norbert Lehmann, the man behind the project. “The Black Cube has an ugly body and a wonderful heart, all you need to enjoy your LPs for the years to come.”
It plays and looks great. It’s a Good value unit.
“Get your hands on the Lehmann Audio Black Cube. I don’t know of anything at or near the price, or maybe even twice the price, that sounds this good.”
