    Default Firebottle OTP Phono Stage

    No not 'Steam Ship Firebottle' but a foray into solid state.

    Could well be the entry level into the Firebottle range Now known as the Firebottle OTP (Out The Park), thanks Bigbird.

    Please note this is only entry level on price, not on performance.
    Starts life as a donor far-eastern unit then has the Firebottle magic applied:



    It is quite small, the 10 note below in the picture is for scale.

    At present it is configured as an MC phono stage (ignore the fact that it says MM on the front), and plans are to turn it into a full phono/line preamp with volume control, input selector and MC/MM switching.

    This is a one box solution, mains input at the rear.
    Independent listening tests are to be carried out on Monday, but first impressions are really positive.

    See http://theartofsound.net/forum/showt...ect-to-change-! for a review.

    OTP phono stage MC/MM switchable, 47K/100 ohm switchable, 200.

    Firebottle - for the no bottleneck approach.

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    The SS Firebottle maybe a contender to compete with this schitt!

    You have a sinister face lurking to the immediate left of your tenner!
