    That reminds me I should have added a 33 and 44 to the list. I wouldn't bother with either - a passive should go well with the 303. :)

    I made a little error in the calcs for the circuit I posted for balanced phono stage:

    The cathode bypass capacitor needs to be 5uF to ensure response down to 20Hz.
    Apologies for that, cheers, Alan

    Hi Barry, after your question on whether my MM phono circuit could be adapted for full balanced design (, I have been thinking of a design with 2 ECC83s. If you are still interested I will post it up for your perusal.
    Cheers, Alan
