"Immediately I was blown away by texture, detail, QUIET background, all-important virtues of a phonostage... I've played maybe 100 records through it thus far... Quite fun reliving parts of my collection with this phonostage, detail and subtle nuances that never before presented themselves. Honestly, this phonostage will put some $10K+ devices to shame! It's not about money, it's about passion, engineering and soul—all things this new Insight phonostage encompasses... the unit is, in my opinion, very affordable. It's high-end without the high-end price! Just what this industry needed. I can tell you this one will NOT be easy to let go of." - Peter Davey, www.positive-feedback.com, March/April 2013

The Sutherland Insight MM/MC Phono Stage is a self-contained stereo phono preamp with built in shielded power supply compartment. Dual mono board layout gives each channel the expected same circuitry. Going beyond that, an identical layout gives each channel the same physical environment. All the nuances of channel tracking are meticulously maintained. Not only the Sutherland Insight MM/MC Phono Stage part-quality at the highest level, every aspect is harmoniously focused into an artist expression of beautiful design.

There comes a tipping point of accumulated knowledge that insists upon a new product. The Sutherland Insight MM/MC Phono Stage is that product. The Insight gained from many years of design of preceding award winning Sutherland phono Preamps. The Insight can be viewed (and appreciated) from many angles.

Pride of Ownership:
Although not expensive by high-end standards, the Sutherland Insight MM/MC Phono Stage is a combination of solid, thoughtful engineering – with an artisanal attention to every design decision. Every detail matters, good enough is NOT good enough. All the areas of performance, aesthetics, reliability, circuit design, circuit board layout, parts selection, packaging - ALL of those aspects must seamlessly dove tail into one expression. For those with a taste for understated elegance, the Sutherland Insight MM/MC Phono Stage will deliver an enduring pride of ownership.

The physical artistry is a means to solid, reliable, musicality. There is no affectation. Just a simple, pure link to your recorded treasures. The Sutherland Insight MM/MC Phono Stage faithfully delivers musical joy, year after year.

Insight Configuration:
Conventional designs use inexpensive, low-quality computer rocker switches. Their design is inadequate for configuring the low-level signal from a phono cartridge. To offer the user a wide range of configurations while maintaining signal integrity, the Insight uses gold-plated header pins and gold-plated shunts. They offer high-pressure and large surface area contacts. Each channel has two configuration headers: One to select cartridge loading and another to select gain. When changing configuration, be sure to set each channel to the same value. Options are printed directly on the circuit board next to the configuration headers.

Gain Adjustments:
There are five available gain settings. Gain is set using the supplied, gold-plated shunts. There is a gain setting header block for each channel. Position the shunt to the desired gain value. Be sure to set the gain of each channel to the same value.

Cartridge Loading Adjustments:
There are five available loading settings. Loading is set using the supplied, gold-plated shunts. There is a load setting header block for each channel. Position the shunt to the desired loading value. Be sure to set the loading of each channel to the same value.
