Excellence all the way
To make the Silver Cube perfect, we have put our decades of experience and all our audiophile passion in the balance. Like always we use the best components from first-class makers. With love for detail we have optimised circuits and raised the mechanical system to a downright masterful level.
The Silver Cube can display its excellence in combination with almost any MM and MC systems available on the market. For this purpose the adjustable gain between 36 dB and 66 dB gives you the necessary flexibility. Finest ingredients such as high-grade Mundorf tin foil capacitors in the filtering network, mica capacitors in the input section, WBT Nextgen sockets for the signal connection and vibration-damping feet from SSC: these are important, yet nowhere near all reasons for the top performance one can experience with the Silver Cube. In any case, one thing soon becomes clear: the Silver Cube is not suitable for fault compensating chains.
The adaptations described provide breathtaking dynamics, excellent specifications as well as an impressively holographic imaging. The sheer elegance of this phono stage once again shows in its high-class aluminium design. It does not only serve as a heatsink for the discrete class-A output stage with no overall negative feedback, but also makes the Silver Cube the visual the star of your high-end system.

"Eye candy: The Silver Cube shines with technical und visual substance"
"The Silver Cube is expensive, but by no means extravagantly priced compared to some. As far as I can hear, it offers as near faultless performance as makes no difference and can cope with any cartridge/preamp combo you care to throw at it. Some will buy it because it looks so good next to the Black Cube SE, but in fact it's a significant upgrade on that very worthy design."
