(NEWS) Meet Erodion EVO, the perfect companion to your Lyra SL cartridge!

Tokyo, Japan December 6, 2023- 

Lyra’s Erodion EVO is now available in the US and Canada. This Moving Coil Step-Up Interface (MC step-up transformer) is especially designed for Lyra cartridges, but is also a terrific fit with any low-impedance cartridge of 2 – 10 ohms. Erodion EVO’s retail price is $6,500, and it is in stock and shipping now. Erodion EVO is a particularly compelling mate to Lyra’s SL (Single-Layer coil) MC cartridges – Kleos SL, Etna Lambda SL, and Atlas Lambda SL. With less noise and, and more importantly, fewer electronic artifacts than most phono stages, many audiophiles will find improved performance from Erodion EVO, even when it is paired with well-respected high-gain, low-noise phono stages. Additionally, Erodion EVO has a wider bandwidth and dynamic range than other step-up transformers, which results in sonic impact that is between an active head amp and a conventional step-up transformer. Regardless of the gain potential of a given phono stage, Erodion EVO delivers an utterly addictive and punchy musicality to Lyra’s SL cartridges that may be unrivaled. 
With 26dB gain (20x) the Erodion EVO increases the signal voltage and output impedance of low-output, low-impedance MC cartridges up to a level that’s comfortable for MM-compatible phono inputs of preamplifiers and phono stages that have input loads of around 47k ohms.

Erodion EVO includes an integrated Lyra-designed-and-made low-capacitance Phono Pipe output cable (60cm or approx. 2ft.) for connection to your phono stage. There are two switchable grounding positions. Position 2 (floating ground) is recommended.

* Gain: 26dB (20 times) (when cartridge’s internal impedance is 2 – 10 ohms and MM level RIAA preamplifier or phono stage presents 47k ohms load)
* Necessary load of MM RIAA preamplifier or phono stage: 10k ohms ~ 47k ohms
* Useable MC phono cartridges: internal impedance range of 2 ohms – 10 ohms
* Frequency range: 10 – 100,000 Hz (when above conditions are met)
* Output Phono Cable Length: 60cm / 2 ft.
* Feet: three stainless steel spikes
* Net size: (W x D x H) 150 mm x 115 mm (128 mm incl. connectors) x 65 mm (78 mm incl. feet), 
* Net weight: 2430 grams / 5.2 lbs
* Size of package: (W x D x H) 185 mm x 146 mm x 90 mm
* Gross weight incl. package: 2640 grams / 5.8 lbs
* This product does not contain any electrical power supply, and it does not require any power input of any kind.
