Hi All,

Help/advice needed. I'm looking for a cheap (as in chips) 'get me started' phono stage to build/bodge, any suggestions/pointers gratefully received.

Cheers,
Mike.

PM me and we can talk bizz. I got one that gets good mentions on the net for its price versus performance. At the same time it is a good starting point to mod. Is 40 with delivery included cheap enough for its M and MM capability? If not, I got one you can have for 25 that is only MM.

Why not have the discussion on the forum so that others interested can benefit from the information?

Or is it a super-top secret, shady dealings, funny handshakes kinda thang? ;)

Ooh!

Just found out today I'll be getting a bonus in March's salery!
Something a little more exotic may well be on the cards now.


:dance:


Probably something from the WD catalogue. Yay!

Cheers,
Mike.

Mate - have a look here http://sound.westhost.com/p25_fig2.gif
If you are handy with the hot stick and electrical glue then this is the baby for you. I built one of these yonks ago, damn fine it was. If you don't fancy it or are looking for something cheaper then Maplin do a rough and ready job - see http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=28732&C=Maplin&U=SearchTop&T=phono%20pre%20amp&doy=29m2
Would recommend the DIY one though, that was designed by John Linsley Hood.

Hmmm... Looks interesting, and quite simple (which is always nice) but I'm a bit of a fan of 'glowing bottles' these days!

I might try both!

Cheers,
Mike.

P.S. Has Madame Dominatrix been shown the door yet? :lolsign:

The puresound Phonostage is a very good one, I'd give that a try if you have the spare cutter Mike.

Yes, bottles are good. I have never built a pre amp with valves before so can't recommend a diy one. Miss Strict will be going soon, we have a new banner - thanks Rob :-) but I need to upgrade 2 web sites to install it - one I have not sussed out yet.
If anybody asks, we haven't burnt her :-)
