    Default Pass B1 R2 buffer pre-amp with Built in Elliot Sound MM phono stage.

    Up for sale is this terrific B1 pre amp phono stage.

    I have gone all digital so I no longer have a need for the phono stage.

    Some details borrowed from disarmamant's original sale post;

    Preamp using the Nelson Pass B1 R2 complimentary JFET buffer design, direct coupled with no capacitors in the signal path.

    Two box construction with dual low noise shunt regulated power supply, preamplifier and screened umbilical connecting cable.

    The preamp uses a complimentary pair of matched Toshiba JFETs, a quality Swiss Elma selector switch and 100K stepped attenuator with Dale resistors. The inbuilt MM phono stage is built on an Elliot Sound Products phono PCB and uses a pair of AD823AN jfet input opamps.

    The preamp has one phono input, three line inputs and an earth binding post for the phono stage. Gold plated RCA input and output sockets with PTFE insulation. Silver plated PTFE insulation signal wiring.

    No Problem. I have a B1 and I know how good they are. I use Imgur too. If you click on the image you have uploaded there will be a set of boxes on the right, one says "direct" click on it. Go to the "Insert Image" box icon above your reply/post and right click the link into the box. Job done.
