Audio Research Reference 3

The Reference Phono 3 phono preamplifier is housed in a single chassis paneled in custom-machined
aluminum. The vacuum tube audio stage utilizes six 6H30 vacuum tubes (three per channel), and one 6H30
and a 6550WE provide regulation in the power supply. The large, vacuum fluorescent display on the front
panel shows all functions relative to the selected input. A row of six buttons control power, mute, input,
and menu controls. Menu functions include: auto shutdown, gain and load settings, display brightness,
equalization settings, and tube hour reset. High and low gain settings, as well as six fixed and one custom
impedance setting, accomodate most any moving magnet or moving coil cartridge. Two single-ended
inputs provide connectivity to two turntables. There are two main outputs providing both balanced and
single-ended outputs. RS-232 and IR input allow for additional control options. The Reference Phono 3 ships
with a full-function metal remote.
