    Default intro

    Just wanted to say hi to the community- Have been into audio sine I was 12, some 40 years now. Recently refurbed a vintage Micro Seiki BL-51 mated with an Acos Lustre GST-1 with a Denon 103R. I think it was a nice combo and have been growing my record collection bit by bit. I am presently looking for a new phono stage with enough gain to drive the Denon's .25 output. While I would love a tube stage, I just dont see one having enough gain to support the low output.

    Hi Phil Welcome to AoS. Seiki stuff is highly regarded as is the Denon cart. Plenty here use a valve stage to drive them too. Our own Firebottle, s one will as will plenty more so fear not.

    Hello Phil. Welcome to AOS.

    You should be able to find a tube phono stage to suit the Denon MC. Why not try starting a thread in the Analogue Arts section and ask what others have used.

    There's a lot going on here, so feel free to join in the chat. The members are friendly.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
