Product Overview

ANK Audio Kits is pleased to announce the new L3 Phono Stage V2 to fulfil customer requests for a phono stage that uses standard NOS tubes like the 12AX7 and 6922. The new phono stage is a breeze to build and delivers superb sound quality with incredibly quiet operation and no special tube matching required. The phono board also supports large film capacitor locations for the four critical signal path locations.

The ability to purchase a high end DIY phono stage with top quality parts configuration is quite unique in the DIY world today. The tube rectified and regulated M2 power supply delivers ultra quiet power supply voltages. The phono stage uses the best RIAA components, a top quality Mundorf EVO oil film bypass capacitor and 4 x ELNA Silmic cathode bypass capacitors.


12ax7 6922 Phono stage section

The circuit is a similar architecture to the L3 Phono V1 with a high gain input stage followed by passive RIAA and no feedback, followed by an output driver tube. The sound is classic vinyl and rolling some nice NOS tubes in the 12AX7 and 6922 / 6DJ8 position will allow you to tailor the sound to your specific preferences.

With the L3 Phono V2 you can build a quiet phono stage with no tube rush, zero hum and a pure black background. We provide all the terminated cables and grounding strategy. The end result, the subtle sonic details that are hidden in those magical vinyl grooves will be revealed.


  • No Feedback AudioNote RIAA circuit
  • Dead Quiet operation even for a DIY build – incredible grounding techniques used!
  • Bring your vinyl to life !
