Listeners Cloud Nine: BI-CONTROL 2

By using developments in the field of current supply and additional voltage stabilisation, we have managed to radically improve on sonic performance with the BI-CONTROL 2.

Flexibility in power management and the ensuing attention paid to the audio signal, assure the creation of an authentic live performance atmosphere .

With the addition of an X-OVER 4-8 you can build up sophisticated active systems.

„…something else you should know: you don't get the impression of the musicians being distant. They are present, nearly life-like. Not just looking through a wide open window, it's more like a box seat...

I´ve been using PHONOSOPHIE equipment for a long time.
I´m very content and don´t think about a lot of things as a result. I come in, turn it on and listen to the music. That´s it.…“

The electronic circuit boards are entirely hand wired and completed by real craftsmen in Hamburg. We use only the best possible parts and assembly processes.

The rich reservoir of current in the power supply enables impulses to be delivered with perfect speed and dynamics.

These are not just there for bass-heavy, show effects or other cheap tricks but to transmit a more musical feeling within a natural sphere.

Better to be connected with Power Control 1.
The Bi-Control 2 does not care for disturbances while working: transformers are not allowed near the sensitive pre-amps. The power is supplied either by a PHONOSOPHIE power amp or an external power supply like the Power Control 1 (photo).

There are big advantages to be gained by using our external power supplies, a step closer to the stage. More Power - More Live. You can upgrade at any time, when is up to you.

Job rotation: Exchangeable phono boards.
The phono boards are designed for quick exchange. You can switch a pc board for MM or MC cartridges optionally. Impedance and capacity settings are widely variable. They can be optimised for your favourite pickup when you order your BI-Control.

Audiophile oriented circuit design with sophisticated board technology and selected components ensure, that the BI-Control is the right choice for the discerning ear.

Bi-Butt kicks your...
You want to get closer to the stage? Try this one: The optional Bi-Butt board (stands for double butterworth filter, or what did you think?) enables you adapt your speakers to the room. By limiting the bandwidth on both ends frequency range, the inherent dynamic behaviour of the amp in the relevant areas is enhanced.

It's not over till X-Over.
This optionally available 2 Way Active X-Over 2 network offers full control of a four channel amplifier configuration. You can activate and precisely adjust your passive speakers from brands like Naim, Linn, PHONOSOPHIE and others.

It talks fluently German: DIN deals with connections
PHONOSOPHIE employs DIN sockets for all connections other than Phono, for which we use BNC terminals.

The lockable DIN connectors offer mechanical and electrical advantages. By using a common ground, we avoid the inclusion of different potentials, so that hum doesn't interfere with the sound quality.
BNC connectors are standard in the measuring business and everywhere where extremely low level signals have to be handled. No wonder that we believe that BNCs are the best choice for transmitting the sensitive phono signal to the amp.
Banana plugs offer the most precisely defined contact with the largest surface area of all loudspeaker connectors and guess what: that's why we use them in all our amps!

PHONOSOPHIE uses cases made of carefully treated aluminium (4 mm thick) with finest grade of surface polishing. In contrast to the heavy armour wrapped around common high end audio components, it will not suffer from vibration energy trapped between thick metal sheets.
Instead, this kind of lean construction offers more control when dealing with vibrations as they are eliminated from the cabinet in the shortest time possible. To reduce vibration effects even further, you can use our racksystem, which is complimentary to the cabinets design and supports them perfectly for optimum sound reproduction.

PHONOSOPHIE System remote. The system remote control is included so you can control everything – even third party components – from a comfortable distance of up to 16 meters due to double LEDs.

LPs, CDs, DVDs…

The quality of the mains supply is essential to increase impulsivity, signal stability and liveness in performance.

Stand up!
Solid like a rock
and light as a feather would be the ideal home base for your hi-fi system. You
will be surprised,
how much the stand affects the total quality of sound. If you want to get closer to the music, start here!

Go for the next step!
You already have a PHONOSOPHIE pre-amp?
You are completely happy?
Thats understandable!

In which case, don´t listen to your pre-amp powered by a POWER-CONTROL 2 external power supply. The improvement is so good that you might have to change your mind - we did warn you!.

The more you invest in power supplies, the closer you will get to the stage!
