Moonriver 505

Cry me a river – of licorice. It's not how the popular song goes but Moonriver Audio have new lyrics with their 505 hybrid phono stage. A plethora of frontal controls accesses all the expected on-the-fly adjustments for MM and MC. The word 'hybrid' here points at IC-based opamps and discrete transistor circuits, not tubes. For socketry the 505 boasts 1 x XLR and 3 x RCA inputs, dual RCA out and one XLR out.
