Retro - Balanced RIAA Stage (BETA)
The Retro is a balanced RIAA filter/gain stage for integrating vinyl into your balanced audio chain. Designed for MC cartridges, the Retro
uses Texas Instruments OPA1632 fully-differential and OPA-1642 JFet-input op-amps, low-noise Dale RN55/CMF55 resistors, Wima and Dayton Audio
MKP, and CD silver-mica capacitors.
While Retro is designed for balanced wiring or your cartridge, it will also support standard single-ended input wiring (by tying -IN to GND),
and still provide balanced output.

The Retro requires a 12-15V bipolar supply, such as our LCBPS or Placid BP.
