    Default Firebottle OTP Phono stage.

    Recently took ownership of this little beauty from NickFNA and i can say i'm pleased i snapped it up. Straight out the box is working very well with my Hotroded SL1200/Jelco and Pickering XV into my Aura intergrated in my Den rig. Now i'll be able to refit my Denon 103r +'The Cap' onto the turntable it was bought for. A few tweaks and the office paperwork should go much smoother

    I must admit they do punch way above their weight, mine can be switched between MM and MC, my mate also has one and his is MM only, I'd say it's much happier in MM mode and trying to run a low output MC is pushing it a bit, but then it's 100 or so, really amazing for the price.

    i've just bought a new phono stage so my Firebottle OTP mk3 is surplus to requirement, i'll post it on the forum but i'd like to get an idea of what it's worth before i do, my thinking is about 120 to 150 or am i wrong?

    OTP Mk 3? This looks like the ideal Christmas present from Mrs. P

    But I'm curious about how it would compare with the built-in phono stage of my MF A5 integrated, which I think is ok.

    What have you replaced it with, Mike?
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    T/T: Inspire Monarch, X200 tonearm, Ortofon 2M Black. Phono: Yaqin MS-22B CD: Marantz CD6006 (UK Edition); Headphone/pre: Myryad Z40; Amp: Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated. Audion Silver Night 300b stereo is enjoying a holiday
    Speakers: Zu Omen Def. Cables: Atlas Equator interconnects, Atlas Hyper 3.0 speaker cables

    T'other system:
    Echo Dot, Amptastic Mini One,Celestion 5's, BK XLS-200 DF

    A/V:
    LG 55" OLED, Panasonic Blu Ray, Sony a/v amp, MA Radius speakers, REL Storm sub

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    I've gone and splurged on an EAT E-Glo Petite, lovely bit of kit.
