Developed by Pathos engineers, In The Groove is a highly regarded MM/MC phono pre-amplifier. It has been entirely redesigned featuring high quality integrated circuits, fitting with flexibility and matching to any phono cartridge.
In The Groove is analog solid state product, featuring passive RIAA preamplification made up of two chassis. It's main chassis has multiple inputs/outputs with settings for impedance and capacitance from the front panel. Sensitivity can be adjusted at the rear panel. These settings allow the perfect match to any phono cartridge, either MM or MC. It is supplied with a second separate chassis containing the linear power supply. By placing the power supply outside of the main chassis, it eliminates harmful power supply noise.
It’s about small changes that make the difference and meet the taste of the listener. In The Groove is highly flexible for adaptation to any analog system.
