    Sorry your not sure what I meant but I was referring to voltage regulation which can be either via valve implementation or other methods as you have alluded too.

    Is that clear enough or do you need a more detailed explanation ?

    Socket and input/output connector upgrade
    Capacitor upgrades
    Valve regulation
    Voltage regulation
    Are you not an audio engineer?

    I listed it like that as sometimes valve regulation could be called voltage regulation.

    I find the bass too woolly/boomy on my Croft micro phonostage, so I've just carried on using the G Slee Era V into line 1.
    Current system. NAS Interspace/Garrard 401/Jelco 750 or Roksan Nima /Nagaoka MP 200/Graham Slee Era V. CDP - Mission PCM 7000. Amp - Audio Innovations S500. Harmon Kardon HK6500. Audio Note J's/Chario syntar towers. QED XT40 speaker cable/Straight wire interconnects.

    Mike. I'm going to write a review about my experiences with the new Croft modifications. It might take a day or so but should make for good reading.
