DESIGN

The York implements a number of innovations which combine to make it an extraordinary phono stage. Enclosed in an all aluminium chassis, the York is shielded from stray EMI and always cool to the touch. Symmetrical input circuitry virtually eliminates any performance variation between channels. Op amps are selected from among state-of-the-art devices boasting “Ultra” high end performance. Thin film resistors and audio grade film capacitors in the signal path are of 0.1% and 1% tolerance respectively, or better where available, to ensure the tightest RIAA accuracy and lowest possible deviation from the intent of the artist based on the vinyl derived signal. No corners are cut or expense is spared in making the York a world class phono stage.​

PRODUCT REVIEWS

Analog Planet
“Across the board, the York shines in the exact way Six Acoustic intended. It brings your records to life through presenting the remainder of the signal chain with a low distortion and low noise output. A tight adherence to the RIAA equalization curve (± 0.01dB) surely assists as well in the unit’s excellent sound."

Home Theaer HiFi
“The Six Acoustic York phono preamp is a simple, flexible, and high-quality audio component that helps your records sound their best without spending crazy amounts of money.”

Hi Fi Alex
“As you can tell, I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of the York phono stage. It punches well above its weight and can easily compete with other phono stages that are more expensive.” It has lots of cartridge loading options and its sonic performance is very admirable.

Wall Of Sound
“The York phono pre-amp is a choice piece of quality audio gear made right here in central Canada. The sound field it offers is smooth and refined, and build quality is to the highest order. The flexibility available to the user when it comes to signal gain and cartridge loading is as extensive as it gets.”

TNT Audio
“It easily outclasses any under $500. phono stage that I have ever heard and the premium in sound easily justifies the extra dollars required to move up to the York phono stage. The York scores very high on the Value-for-Money scale and it made me seriously question my investment in a $2500. step-up transformer. I think that says it all.”
