LAB12 MELTO2 - Fully Adjustable Phono Preamplifier  Phono preamplifiers represent the utmost challenge for all high-end audio designers and companies. There are numerous phono preamplifiers on the market, of course, but as with the rest of Lab12’s products, we wanted to create a phono-stage that follows the profoundly different, flexible and sonically perfected Lab12 path.

Melto2 is another proud Lab12 future retro creation that fuses past and present into a fully-fledged high-end product for the 21st Century.

Melto2 is a true full tube and remotely controlled phono-stage with a high-quality OLED display, where all important functions are clearly visible and easily selectable in real time. You don’t even need to get up from your listening chair.

Years of experimenting and creating high-end audio devices has allowed us to create what we believe to be the most potent and emotionally engaging phono preamplifier, where no subtle detail is being hidden behind the noise.

This full blooded, meticulously crafted, highly adjustable phono-stage offers fine settings for impedance, capacitance, gain and even three EQ curves… and there’s more.

Melto2 represents a vinyl enthusiasts’ dream come true with an exceptional sound quality.
