Lehmann Audio – Black Cube SE II Phono Preamp
The Lehmann Audio Black Cube SE II is the advanced version of the multi-awarded Black Cube SE and has a lot to offer.
The Black Cube SE II is based on the SE audio circuit and has been upgraded with superior sockets and a bass filter, which can be finetuned extensively to your personal needs, takes the performance of the Black Cube series to a new level.
As the proud owner of a Black Cube SE II you will get the feeling as if the music had been composed just for you. There is hardly a system that can be tailored so individually to your listening habits and acoustic preferences like this technical masterpiece. The Black Cube SE II will bring you and your favorite music together even more closely!
A truly audiophile phono stage
Virtually all common systems from high-output MM to MC may be connected to the Black Cube SE II. Included is a free slot per channel for the solder-free fitting of a custom impedance, and there is also an extra hardwired plug-in location with immediate action. Should you wish some resistors to match your personal system to the Black Cube SE II, we will enclose them with your order at no cost.
The high-precision passive RIAA filter network sits between two linear gain stages and has been realized using high-grade, surge-proof, and narrow tolerated polypropylene foil capacitors. That way transients, dynamics, and timbres can reach the listener in a pure manner. As with the whole Black Cube family, the Black Cube SE II also uses professional input stages of the latest generation for a precise, low-noise, and powerful reproduction. The audio section contains additional modules for an efficient hum, HF, and random voltage suppression. The use of a double-sided audio board allows an optimized trace layout for a particularly low-interference operation.
The PWX power supply – dependable and powerful
Due to a custom-designed toroidal mains transformer with static shielding, the strong and seriously oversized external power supply ensures a particularly safe operation. Neutrik XLR connectors with gold-plated pins provide safe contact between the audio section and PWX power supply; the cable between the audio and power section is shielded. Furthermore, the two housings are made of a non-magnetic material (aluminum) and their top lids are mechanically dampened.
With its high-class front panel (silver, black or chrome-plated) the Black Cube SE II also cuts a fine figure in your HiFi rack.
Note: The sonic profile of Lehmann gear is perhaps the most neutral we can find. This brand is quite popular with our professional music/recording studio clients.
“Upgraded to the SE version by the PWX, it was definitely poking the fire again like almost no other phono pre in its price range. Merciless heavy rock by Vanilla Fudge or massive bigband attacks by Count Basie were just about to blaze through the listening room. Pimped in such a hot manner, the Lehmann Black Cube SE II is state-of-the-art.”
“This is a true audiophile phono stage and, partnered with equipment of equal quality, the results are remarkable. Indeed, the SE II is difficult to fault even compared to the competition in a much higher price bracket. The exceptionally low background noise allied to a fabulous rhythmic and tonal rendition makes it worthy of consideration for those seeking the most detail from their vinyl without having to make a hyperspace price jump.”
“To ﬁnd more depth and detail in music I know so well was a remarkable experience and I warmed to this little gem of a phono stage all over again.”
