MC Ref V£9,990.00
The Mono Channel Reference V MK4
This is where the Reference range starts - the Mono Channel Reference V MK4 The technology used in this one product has found its way through all other Whest phono stages. It is unlike any other phonostage ever designed. The MC REF was primarily designed as a moving coil phono stage with gain starting at 53dB. The gain stages are discrete transistor Class-A and uses a higher than normal voltage rail to achieve its staggering dynamic performance. The 2 boxes are actually 2 totally individual gain blocks, each with their own power supply. Each gain block contains 40 hand built and hand trimmed Whest voltage regulators for near battery like impedance. The resulting design is vinyl reproduction like you've never heard before. If what we all want is a system that lacks any sense of 'electronics' either in valve/tube or transistor format then we have arrived. The large scale dynamics along with a 'real' life size soundstage are just 2 small aspects that set the MC REF V apart from the crowd. Add to this its amazing resolving power and precise timing, its lack of a 'signature' and its ability to play music like no other phono stage in the world, you can see why it is the envy of all other manufacturers.
PS.30-RDT-SE in Black or Red Chassis£4,500.00
The all new PS.30RDT Special Edition
Designed quite squarely to be the very best phonostage below the £8000 mark. The PS.30RDT Special Edition takes on its competition head on with musicality, imaging, soundstaging and authority only found it much more expensive units. The format of the Special Edition is based on the PS.30RDT chassis but the topology is all MC REF V. The pure Class-A input stage is a new development designed to exhibit the same noise level as the lowest noise integrated IC chip. This new fully discrete input stage is housed in a non-magnetic alloy module and is potted with a new high-tech polymer to stop vibration entering the most important part of the signal chain within the alloy hand-built chassis. Already users are reporting a level of performance never heard before at or near the price range which the PS.30RDT Special Edition exists in. Give you dealer a call for an early appointment.

PS.30-RDT-SE in Black or Red Chassis Details
Winner Of The Most Wanted Product For 2009 in the Analogue Section of STEREOTIMES USA
The PS.30RDT has become the phono stage which other stages are compared against. The PS.30RDT is not only a higher specified and closer tolerance version of the PS.30R but is also electrically dual mono in design from the power inlet onwards! To do this, the PS.30RDT is equipped with 2 ultra low mechanical noise transformers - one per channel. Every magazine that has reviewed the PS.30RDT has loved it, comparing it to the best of valve/tubes but without the valve pitfalls - namely: noise, microphony, bloated bass and image blur. Reviewers have also compared the PS.30RDT to stages costing many times its price and the PS.30RDT has always come out on top. The PS.30RDT is used in more than 30 archiving libraries worldwide due to its amazing resolving power. It is also used in several magazine reviewer systems worldwide and is now a Whest Audio best seller. Technology: 1. 2 ultra low noise power transformers 2. Ultra low impurity copper used throughout 3. Class-A discrete output circuitry 4. Hand selected and matched parts from the MC REF V 5. Audio performance equaling stages 2-3 times its price 6. Single box solution for MM and MC cartridges 7. Hand welded 6063 aluminium chassis 8. 6 gain and 6 load settings
Awarded Best Phonostage In It's Class LP Magazine Germany
This is the successor to the famed PS.20/MSU.20 phonostage. The PS.30R uses completely different circuitry to the PS.20 to achieve a new standard in vinyl reproduction. The PS.30R was designed to meet the demands of the avid vinyl lover. It is without a doubt the best selling sub-£3000 phono stage in the world. The PS.30R utilises technology from the flagship MC REF V to achieve its sublime audio performance. All around the world it has been hailed as one of the very best phono stages EVER MADE! It is used in both domestic audio as well as the professional audio field thanks to it's ultra low noise Class-A stages. Technology: 1. Single box solution for MM and MC cartridges 2. Transistor Class-A discrete circuitry 3. 6 gain and 6 load settings 4. Audio performance equaling stages 2-3 times its price 5. Hand welded 6063 aluminium chassis
Whest TWO Gets The Prestigious 'Maximum Stereomojo Award'
This is where the famed PS.20/MSU.20 electronics are...inside the whestTWO, and it is the reason why the whestTWO has won so many accolades. The whestTWO retails at approximately half of what the PS.20 used to cost! No wonder it sounds the way it does and it is no surprise that so many audiophiles use the whestTWO worldwide. As one reviewer said of the whestTWO - ' it's probably the greatest audio bargain ever! ' 'This phono preamp is an audiophile delight. Highs are pristine with very good extension and clarity. Midrange is clean and unembellished. Good, taut bass. Soundstages are recreated with well defined width, depth and height extending beyond the physical boundaries of the speakers. Imaging is pin-point accurate. Lightning fast transient response and iron fisted control creates explosive dynamics. Music emerges from an inky blackness. High transparency and detail means nothing is hidden from the WhestTWO.' - AudioNZ New Zealand High End Magazine The whestTWO... forms part of 'BEST VALUE SYSTEM AT SHOW' - New York HiFi Show Technology: 1.
