    Awesome stuff Gerald! I do love the case on your phono preamp! With the connections on top, makes good sense.

    Finally got system all set up so the question how does it sound ?
    My old set up sounded really good to me but then when the pre/Phono stage died after speaking to Jason he said he will see what he could do .
    Today finally go a good run of albums playing had to reposition speakers loads of times after finally being happy with balance I have sat down and had a proper listen .
    To my ears what a massive improvement the bass on Nevermind is smashing my internal organs up the treble is pure bliss .
    Image separation and clarity I have never heard before .So not bad for a system that's been built on a tiny budget over the years !
    Roll on the Mono blocks

    One very happy man who can t stop playing lp's at the moment
