Natalija Phono III · Phono tube preamplifier
» Very rarely I have held an audio component in my hands where what was offered was so dramatically above the asking price. A very deep bow to Georg Arsin and his team, who have a real hammer in their program « (translated - image hifi)

Natalija III – Genuine world-class performance at a price that puts a smile on your face
Natalija III has been object of several crucial improvements over its celebrated-by-customers, trade and press alike predecessor, including:
- extensively reworked circuit design
- completely new circuit board layout with larger grounding area und optimized grounding paths for exemplary „black“ sonic background
- newly developed, audio-optimized Rike Audio electrolytic capacitors offer higher efficiency and super-fast signal handling
- novel internal cabling using innovative material mix(silk, cotton, paper) for utmost signal purity
- completely new, extremely strong, internally braced non-magnetic casing using 2.5mm solid-aluminium front and back panels to ensure minimal parasitical resonances
- even higher quality, custom-made-for-Rike Audio Lundahl step-up transformers (MC version)
- super high-quality, custom-made-for-Rike Audio DIP switch ensures highest signal integrity and offers no less than 128 setting options, so virtually any phono cartridge can be used at its very best; additional solder socket for individual choice of resistor make and value (MC version)
- thorough purification and sealing of sound-relevant components such as tube pins, tube sockets and RCA plugs using Audiotop Connect Workstation to avoid corrosion and contact resistance and preserve perfect signal integrity
As before, Natalija 3 design is based around two 6HM5 (EC900) tubes per stereo channel. This very common and thus inexpensive HF triode is ideally suited for use in sophisticated audio circuits. However, it’s extremely rarely found in hifi components because its implementation is fairly complex and requires an unusually high degree of know-how and experience. Moreover, we even managed to transform the already very rugged 6HM5 into a veritable long-life tube, giving thousands of hours of trouble-free listening pleasure.
Natalija III is available in two versions, MM only or MM/MC, including extensive setting options to drive virtually any moving magnet and moving coil cartridge at its very best.
