    REVIEWS:
     

    Galen Carol Audio: I've been listening to the Conductor for a few weeks now, and WOW! The TOTALLY silent background allows every last speck of detail to be heard and appreciated. Dynamic contrasts are positively scintillating. I know you will be shocked at what you haven't heard in your records. - Galen Carol


    Part-Time Audiophile: RMAF Show Introduction: "An Input for Every Tonearm -  The Rowland Conductor can be ordered with up to four separate inputs for audiophiles who use multiple tonearms or multiple analog rigs. Price is $8500 - $13600 depending on options such as number of inputs, or the availability of amorphous cores for the transformers). If there’s one trend I’m seeing this year when it comes to analog playback, it’s that a lot of people are using more than one tonearm on their turntables.

    "The Rowland Conductor is the ultimate phono pre for those vinyl lovers. Sure, there have been phono stages that offer more than a single input, but the two-chassis Conductor (the second box is one of two power supplies—the stock Aeris and the optional PSU) goes to great lengths to isolate each one of those inputs from the other ones. Each input is highly configurable and easily accessed on the back panel.

    Pay As You Go -

    "While the Rowland Conductor is a statement product for serious vinyl lovers, you can start off with just one input—even just an MM—and add as you go. In other words, you pay for what you need, and if you decide to jump down the analog rabbit hole, the Conductor will jump with you. The fit and finish of the Rowland products are simply stunning, and the sound quality, from my limited experience, is superb as well.

    "Now that I’m officially the owner of more than one tonearm—I added a second arm just a few weeks ago—the Rowland Conductor phono preamplifier is an extremely attractive alternative."
