PEQ-3

AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-PEQ3 PHONO PREAMP

"How about a sweet sounding starter phono preamp that lists for $119...? It's the Audio-Technica AT-PEQ3, a little plug'n'play box with a wall-wart power supply that's quiet, sounds clean and surprisingly dynamic, and get's the job done remarkably well."
- Michael Fremer, Stereophile, Vol. 32 No.12 (December 2009)

Audio-Technica has a penchant for coming up with wonderful bargains and delightful performers - like the Audio-Technica AT-PEQ3 phono preamp. Small in size, attractively encased in polished metal, complete with RCA interconnect and AC/DC adapter - it is ready to plug and play music after a short break-in period. Initially it sounds brittle at the top, hazy and cantankerous but after using it a while it starts to morph into a bundle of surprises.

To initially test the Audio-Technica AT-PEQ3 phono preamp the lab used it with a Nagaoka NP300 phono cartridge mounted on a Sota Sapphire turntable with a removable headshell. This equipment is thirty times more expensive than the Audio-Technica AT-PEQ3 phono preamp and will likely not be used with it, but the test lab wanted to hear how it would cope with high-end audio.

Next it was tested with an Audio-Technica AT440ML phono cartridge. It mated very well indeed with its sibling. The details, the sound stage and depth were there. Vocals were especially convincing. Bass was tight, though not visceral and did not have an overpowering wallop that some might like. You could detect a slight sizzle at the top end of some recordings, but it was not irritating at all. With the Graham Slee Era Gold Mk.V phono preamp, the highs are pristine and without distortion. Adittionally, the sound stage is a bit wider and deeper - but then again it costs over ten times more.

To be fair, the new Ortofon 2M Red cartridge was used with the Audio-Technica AT-PEQ3 phono preamp. Initially the lab thought that the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge offered outstanding clarity. After extensive listening comparisons, however, it was concluded that the Ortofon 2M Red interprets music differently. It spotlights certain aspects of a performance. For example when playing the same recording, the rhythm guitar would be more prominent while with all the other cartridges the guitar was less so.
