The V90-LPS is a modestly priced MM/MC phono stage with superb technical performance.

In our opinion, there are five critical areas where a phono stage must achieve excellence:

1.RIAA correction
2.Correction above 20 kHz
3.Low distortion
4.Low noise
5.Good overload margin
 
The V90-LPS has extremely accurate RIAA correction and that extends up to 80 kHz and beyond. That may sound extreme, but there is a good deal of information above 20 kHz that needs correction. If it isn’t corrected, it will show itself as ringing and overshoot.

The V90-LPS’s distortion is very low. Noise ratio is extremely low and all but inaudible.

Overload margin is easily adequate for any current cartridge.

All in all, the V90-LPS accomplishes everything necessary for a phono stage.

There are many phono stages that are far more expensive and make extraordinary claims for their performance. In contrast, the modest V90-LPS just gets on with the job of doing everything you could reasonably expect from a phono stage.

If you want top notch performance, and don’t care about the alleged conferred status of buying a high-priced product that offers no better performance than the V90-LPS, then we are of a like mind.
