Musical Surroundings Nova III



Celebrating 20 years of Phonomenal phono stages, our third generation Michael Yee Nova design combines a discrete higher gain, dual-mono topology with a new internal regulated power supply.



Built in California, the Nova III is the latest version of our larger phono stage with incredible flexibility and performance, delivering the best sound in its price range. Like the Phonomena II+, the Nova III has rear panel switches for easily accessible and highly flexible gain and loading adjustment. The Nova III incorporates a large, regulated internal power supply providing greater dynamics and image dimensionality, replacing the batteries used in previous generations. Further performance enhancements are available by adding the optional Linear Charging Power Supply.
