"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

….this is now my last upgrade in this system.
The PS.40RDT Special Edition is by far the
best phono stage that has ever blessed this system.
EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING in the albums I have been playing recently sounds like they have come alive.  3D, dynamics, soundstaging, pace and rhythm are all playing at 100% MAX plus some !!!!

I did it,  I hated it but it had to be done.
I went and compared 4 x phonostages and the whestTHREE Signature won by the largest of all margins.  When I got to the whest it was an easy win.  The other 3 were all the same or lacking in so many areas.  My Dr Feickert turntable is now working and sounding the way it should.  FANTASTIC

I have just received the whestTWO.2 and just couldn’t wait to open the box.  I’ve plugged it in a WOW!  It is already sounding great.  My Audio Technica LP1240 is sounding like a monster on steroids.  I can’t believe that it gets better after a few days of warming up…

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.
