What HFL Thinks

Nagra Classic Phono – Inspired by the legendary Nagra recorder that gave these products their unique sound and size, the Classic Line is the essence of Nagra. These devices are compact, refined and based on an engineering approach of “form follows function”. There is nothing fancy or superfluously decorative about them. Each control or button has a function and is derived from the world of professional recording. The build quality, touch and feel are what you would expect from the best Swiss watch makers. We have the entire classic line set-up ready to be demoed, so please feel free to come in and listen to this iconic brand, you won’t be disappointed.

After many years of success and esteem, the Nagra VPS is replaced by the CLASSIC PHONO

The VPS, itself inspired by the legendary Nagra PL-P, is a very respected phono stage.

The VPS was the base we used and the obvious product to benchmark the new design.
