Accuphase AD-250
30,000 yen(June, 1994 release)

The exclusive phone equalizer unit which enables playback of an analog record by C-250.
Record playback is attained by extending from the rear panel side.

AD-250 equips the printed wired board of the glass substrate formed into the golden plate with the exclusive input circuit which matched the cartridge of each MM/MC.
It is made to consistent with the high-output impedance of a cartridge at the time of MM input, and it has FET composition of high S/N.
Moreover, since a minute signal is received by low impedance, the difference input circuit by a low noise element is constituted, it is attaining low impedance-ization of a NFB loop at the time of MC input, and it is enabling little reproduction of noise.

Selection of the MC input impedance 10, 30, and 100ohm and the Subsonic Filter which cuts a super-low-pass noise are carried in the core.
Before these functions equip with AD-250, they can be set up with the switch in a printed circuit board.
