Music Hall PA1.2 phono stage

    Whether you're just getting started in the audiophile hobby or need a accurate, low noise preamp for digital transfer work, the Music Hall PA1.2 is a good choice. The simple fact that you can get a quiet, accurate audiophile grade phono stage for under $150 is beyond belief.

   The MMF PA1.2 debunks the myth that you have to spend big money to experience the sound of low output moving coil cartridges.

   The Music Hall MMF Phono Pak is easy to install. It can be placed anywhere and requires no attendance. It is happy to remain powered up at all times.


  • RIAA EQ Accuracy 0.5dB
  • GAIN
    - MM 40 dB
    - MC Gain 60 dB
  • Load
    - MM1: 47kOhm // 120pF
    - MC: 100 Ohm // 120pF
  • Max Output 9.5Vrms
  • THD <0.05%
  • Input Overload 90 mV
  • Noise -94dB MM, -75dB MC
  • Dimensions 5.9 x 4.2x 2.0"
  • Shipping Weight 4 Lbs

   I'll admit it, if the Music Hall PA1.2 were made here in the US it would cost much more than it does. But who can knock Music Hall for doing what they do best!

   Quiet IC based preamplification with direct coupled outputs, using DC servo feedback. Switchable input for MM andMC.

When computing total load capacitance, remember that your turntable cables and tonearm wiring should contribute no more than 200pF to the total.

   The Music Hall PA1.2 Phono Pak is on all the time. It has no on/off switch.

  • 1 Year Warranty
  • Gold RCA's
  • Accurate Active EQ
  • MM and MC Capable
  • Metal Film Resistors
  • Star Grounding
  • Extruded Aluminum Chassi

   The really great features to take note of with the PA1.2 are, I believe, the high performance vs price. You simply do not see this sort of function and performance in any other design under $200. Maybe even higher.

   One of the biggest let downs with phono stages is noise and hum. Phono stages must be quiet at normal and above normal listening levels. The Music Hall PA1.2 Phono Pak is very quiet. If this is your first "better" phono stage, you will hear lots more detail and clarity in your music.
