Design & User Interface
The Moonriver 505 uses the simple, ergonomic and user oriented interface giving direct access to all necessary adjustments featuring 4 knobs and 5 switches for all the adjustments: 12 settings for the gain, 5 settings for the capacitance, 5 settings for MC load, including a custom option, 3 settings for MM load and EQ choice for Decca or Columbia 78 rpm records, the 505 phono stage will drive your precious MC cartridge with unmatched performance and it will make your everyday MM cartridge to sound like never before. Every change of setting is stored automatically for every individual input.
Ultra low noise, active, hybrid solid state circuit delivers incredible performance with open, transparent and dynamic sound. The circuit design is established without any compromise in mind: massive 70000uf capacitor bank, dual mono, 6 in total, individual power supplies for each stage, separate input stages for MM and MC, extremely short signal path, triple shielding, extremely low impedance relays and high current, discrete output circuit. The sound and the level of performance of the Moonriver 505 phono stage is hard to be described and it must be auditioned to be believed.
