"Soundstaging is a beautifully three-dimensional and solid. The dynamics are stunningly transient and fine dynamics are elegant and accurate - and with this performance, can claim to be one of the very best phonostages on the market"

Helmut Rohrwild - Hifi and Records

Hey James.  Thanks for the whestTWO.2 phono with that discrete upgrade.  What a marvelous upgrade.  You’ve heard it all before, well you told me what would happen and it has 🙂  My Rokan doesn’t need anything doing to it.  The Tabriz with the XX2Mk2 works like a new setup now.  Just brilliant.  Thanks again from Australia.

Sarah.  I cannot say thank you enough.  This is exactly what I have been waiting for.  Moving from the Icon Audio PS3 Mk2 phonostage was the best thing I have done and something that I did not really think I would ever need to do.  The system now sounds lifelike.  The whestTHREE Signature phono stage is so much more musical and more realistic in what it does.  Going back to the PS3 Mk2 I can hear how that tube/valve ‘sound’ gets in the way of the music but also the PS3 Mk2 does not have the detail that the whestTHREE Signature has or the dynamic range.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Well I see I am the second here in recent times from sunny Canada to contribute a few choice words.
It’s not easy doing this so here goes.  I have a Bergmann Audio Sindra table with Lyra Etna.  This has always sounded very good
but Percy M who lives not a million miles from me bought over his TITAN Pro for me to check out.  He was going away that weekend so
that was good timing.  This is where I was blown away.  My Pass Labs XP-27 was always good to me and I didn’t really think I was missing anything
UNTIL the TITAN Pro entered my system.  Soundstage, dynamics, detail, vocals… everything took a huge step up.  Going back to the Pass Labs
was terrible.  Now I have my own TITAN Pro I can tell you it has been the best move for my vinyl setup by far.

Secondhand horror stories

12th October 2020

We have had several phone calls regarding a few whest phonostages on either eBay or various audio forums.  Although we never ever recommend buying from these places because you don’t get a warranty NOR do you ever get a current spec unit, we were sent photographs of 2 units that people were interested in.  One […]

Formed in 2005, Whest Audio Ltd has been at the forefront of phonostage design for both the pro-audio and domestic high-end audio industries.

Our first product in the world of vinyl playback was the acclaimed 2-box PS.20/ MsU.20 which won awards worldwide and was compared to other phonostages costing 10x its price in the magazines.  Stereophile magazine and Michael Fremer (the audiophile guru) put us on the map with the PS.20/MsU.20.

We strive to push the boundaries of vinyl playback with new designs and topologies.  We don’t copy like the rest, we don’t guess like the rest and we certainly don’t think ‘in the box’ like the rest.  Our testimonial page does speak for itself which is where we find the truth lies.

Since 2005 we have been pushing the boundaries of phonostage and small signal design …….. and we’ve only just started.
