Genesis PH-1 Phono - Battery Powered
2016 Munich Introduction
Yves-Bernard André Designed Custom MC Transformer
"With the preamplifier/converter with his power block GENESIS YBA us again enjoy a very high level of musicianship, and very close to the mythical references YBA Classic Alpha and Delta series."
The legendary transparency of "Classic YBA" is confirmed.
Both say right away, with the entire Genesis, this is great art awaits you in the matter of transparency. The concept and philosophy of the origin, that is to say, this form of incomparable clarity have been complied with to the letter.
The music emerges from the speakers, lifting the veil on all, and I mean all, the nuances, subtleties and details that make the richness of a quality recording.
Each musical excerpt sheds light on a substance and realistic musical instruments.

YBA Genesis PH1 MC/MM Battery Phono
"This is a refreshingly clean and open phono stage, one that sounds expansive, authoritative and musical, yet smooth and organic. Via its MC input, it serves up a big, three dimensional sound. Listening to Sparks’ The Number One Song In Heaven, the soundstage is vast, the detailing impressive and I am particularly struck by the combination of life and vibrancy, together with tonal smoothness."
“YBA’s Genesis PH1 gives a taste of high-end phono stages, with its battery operation turning an already very good phonostage into a great one. It reminds me of all the noise that a poor AC mains supply can bring, and the difference is clear to hear. ”
A REAL LIVE WIRE
"But you don’t have to restrict yourself to endless spins of the live ‘Hotel California’ or ‘Keith Don’t Go’ (thank goodness). In practice, the Genesis CD4 thrives on well recorded albums, and with the mighty Gov’t Mule Dark Side Of The Mule [Provogue PRD 7446 2] delivers a fine combination of slam, power, gorgeous guitar tone and a real sense of the live event."
"Hard as silk, as delicate as steel"
"Nobody builds amplifiers like Yves-Bernard André. He has taught transistors the nuances."
"My conclusion: Music presented by Genesis A6 & PRE5 is free and relaxed, yet full of sensitivity and energy."
"The sound is uncommonly mature in its ambitious musicality, but also fulfills typical hi-fi criteria. That's great - and rare.
"Too many components only count peas or smear honey. Yves-Bernard André can look back on more than four decades of experience. You can hear that from his fantastic amplifiers. "
