There is an almost irresistible urge to add complexity to any endeavor. The result is a tangled knot of disparate good ideas. Because there is always more that could be added, there is never an opportunity for long-term satisfaction. Never enough.
Sutherland offers a different vision – it may be more closely aligned with your values. It is a very disciplined approach that refines design to the essential elements – and then executes the design to perfection. There is no allowance for superfluous clutter. Nothing extra will be allowed between you and the music.
The essential technical areas of concern are:
- Avoid electronic colorations by keeping signal path uncluttered and straightforward.
- Refine the circuitry and layout for one audio channel. Then build it twice for stereo
- Keep the clutter of options out of the signal path and off the circuit board.
- Keep contaminating AC power line noise out.
- Use the best components in a conservative manner, for long life and effortless performance
- Design and build with a sense of instrument grade craftsmanship
|Engineering line up begins with the PH-3D phono preamplifier. It is
a favorite of audiophiles, reviewers and critics. The Absolute Sound
selected it as ‘Phono Preamplifier of the Year’ in 2007.|

|The new Sutherland Hubble phono preamplifier is an instrument for discovery and exploration. With it, you can look deeply into the most subtle details of your treasured music collection.|
From any view point, the dove-tailed integration of aesthetics, performance, and technology will affirm your choice to include it in your music system. It will earn your respect as a long-term, collaborative teammate.
Even before you listen to the Hubble, you will recognize the correctness of its character. The substantial size and weight are the fi rst indications of its enduring build quality. But its svelte proportions, along with an uncluttered elegance, also speak of craftsmanship -- pride of ownership.

| As an instrument designed to keep the finest of turntables running at exactly the correct speed, there is simply no equal. With a time-base accuracy of 2 parts per million, the Timeline is your primary reference for checking speed.|
Timing marks are laser projected on the wall. Any speed errors will be revealed.

|The 20/20 is AC powered and is quiet! It starts with separate external AC power modules for each channel, followed by 10 sections of passive RC filtering and finalized with local constant voltage shunt regulation. It is derived from the best elements of the PH3D and the Hubble. The signal path is almost the same as the
Hubble; the construction is as simple as the PH3D. It has an elegant esthetic of performance, value, craftsmanship and minimalism.|
