AUDUBON, PA, October 30, 2014—Walker Audio, manufacturer of award-winning high-end audio products, announces the introduction of the Procession Phono Amp with dual mono continuously-variable linear cartridge loading for use with moving coil cartridges.
This two-piece component has two dials, one for each channel, which can be adjusted during play and set anywhere between 0 and 2.5k ohms, making this the easiest-to-use phono amp ever.
“Most adjustable-loading phono amps only allow large fixed incremental adjustments such as 100, 300, 500 or 1000 ohms,” says Lloyd Walker, founder and President of Walker Audio. “These are all compromises and not the absolute best setting for any cartridge or system. The best setting is somewhere in-between.”
The Procession’s dual channel continuously-variable loading allows users to personalize their system’s performance by selecting the loading for each channel that is perfect for their cartridge and their listening style and music.
Walker explains that very rarely are cartridges perfectly balanced in both channels. The Procession phono amp allows users to increase the loading in one channel to correct for a slight imbalance or to adjust for less-than-perfectly-recorded LPs.
“A small adjustment on one or more channels can significantly increase your listening pleasure,” says Walker. “If an LP is bright-sounding, lower the dials a bit. Lowering the dials also will give you a more laid-back sound. If you want more excitement, increase the load settings.”
According to Walker, in product shoot-outs, the Procession phono amp has been tested against and replaced phono amps costing 3 and 4+ times more. ‘This phono amp has far exceeded my expectations and has a permanent place in my reference system along with our Proscenium Black Diamond V turntable,” he says. “Getting $30K+ performance for a fraction of the cost makes the Procession a great choice for taking an analog system to the next level.”
Walker Audio, with more than 100 industry awards, is recognized as one of the premiere brands in the audiophile market. Lloyd Walker has more than 20 years of experience designing audio equipment.
The Procession Phono Amp has a list price of $8,000 USD. The Proscenium Black Diamond V turntable is $105,000 USD.
