We're pleased to announce that Hammertone Audio has resumed Allnic Audio distribution for North America!…
…And the miracle is – the NEW H-5500 PHONO STAGE
Allnic is analog through and through, from the beginning, gaining fame especially for its vinyl playback related products, and building over the years a line of constantly improving phono-stages virtually unmatched in quality for dollar. That momentum continues today with the advent of the Allnic H-5500 phono-stage preamplifier. The H-5500 is replacing the outstanding, extremely well-received Allnic H-1202 and is available for order now at an introductory price of $4500 USD, with free shipping to anywhere in North America.
The H-5500, although using the same fabulous tube set as its predecessor, differs significantly from the H-1202. It has:
- a power supply double the capacity of the H-1202’s
- DUAL MC and MM inputs
- a redesigned, heavier, more solid aluminum chassis
- a current meter for monitoring tube status
Relative to the H-1202, these features provide not only the ability to hook up 4 tonearms (2 with MC carts, and 2 with MM carts) simultaneously, but also greater balance throughout the frequency range and tighter, more powerful bass – in a chassis that resists vibration more effectively. It truly is an all-round sonic and visual beauty.
Considering the H-5500’s features, the introductory $4500 price tag is even more of a remarkable value than the H-1202 at $3750. Those in Asia who have heard the H-5500, or even just heard OF it, know this, and the first production run is already 80% spoken for. We’ve been lucky to acquire a small number of H-5500s for first release in North America and Europe at the intro pricing, and review samples are being organized as we write… given the receptions that the H-1202 and its predecessor the H-1201 received from both reviewers and purchasers, need we say more?
If you’re in the market for a fantastic value in a phono-stage around this price point, you might want to consider purchase of the H-5500 at its introductory price. The price includes free shipping to anywhere in North America, with deliveries expected in 2 to 6 weeks. Contact any of the fine Allnic dealers listed below. They’re more than happy to talk.
In addition, we have three (3) new H-1202s left for sale in North America. After this, there will be no more. Special end of production price of $2950, including free shipping anywhere in North America. Again, if interested, please feel free to get in touch with any of the dealers below.
The H-5500 has a fantastic pedigree
As noted above, and if you’ve been following Allnic Audio for any time, you’ll already know that it manufactures a full line of phono products that are spectacular for both sound quality and price to performance ratio. These have ranged from the early H-1200, to the H-1201, to the H-3000/3000V and H-5000 DHT, to the still current AUT-2000 SUT and the rest of the current lineup, from the exceptionally popular, exceptional sounding and easy to use H-1202, to the stunning and versatile H-7000/7000V, to the “all stops pulled”, direct-heated triode H-8000 DHT, a true triumph of audio engineering. And remember – all these devices use the same MC step-up transformers.

(Watch for the new AUT-8000, with silver wire wound transformers. Coming soon.)
(Now discontinued and replaced by the H-5500)
(Soon to be replaced by the new H-6500)
H-7000 and H-7000V
So why is the H-5500 is causing such a stir…? Here’s a sampling of reviews about its predecessors, the H-1201 and H-1202, upon which the H-5500 improves.

In short, the H-5500 is generating significant excitement because it enhances the already exceptional quality of the H-1202, with double the power supply capability, dual MM and MC inputs, and a redesigned chassis. These together provide greater balance throughout the frequency range, tighter, more powerful bass, and greater flexibility in a more vibration resistant chassis. At its introductory price especially, we know it’s sure to surprise and delight.
