Which of these Phono Preamps is better?
General Audio Discussion | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums
I have an Audio Space Galaxy 34 tube integrated amp, and a Denon DP-47F turntable with MM cartridge. I use a Lounge Audio phono preamp. Would a Parks Audio Budgie Tube phono preamp be an upgrade?
Which would you choose? I haven't been able to try the Parks Budgie.
Anyone have experience with the Acurus P10 or Aragon 47k phono preamp?
I can find little information on these two preamps. From what I have read so far, they are supposed to be similar. One posting described the Aragon as being the same with the exception of the power supply being external to the preamp enclosure itself. One may use better resistors than the other. ...
Preamps For MC7200
Getting a MC7200 soon and had to buy a Rotel RC1090 preamp to get it. Was going to flip the Rotel and use the pre from my MAC4100 but guess I will have to listen to both and decide. Will be looking for a preamp and was thinking a C37 or a MX130(Price is right) until I can afford a tube preamp. Ul...
Cambridge Audio - Azur 551P - MM Phono Preamplifier - Black
I am selling my Cambridge Audio Azur 551P Phono Preamp. This is a nice hi-fi phono preamp for moving magnet cartridges. It is very quiet and clear sounding. It has discrete outputs and a passive EQ design, which is what makes it sound better than many other phono preamps in its price range, and...
6SL7GTs or 6SL7WGTs for my phono preamps..........

Phonomena II Phono Preamp vs. IFI - MICRO iPHONO
I have been scoping on new phono preamps and have my eye on these two. Although I like the phono section in my ARC SP16 preamp, it is designed for HOMC carts. I want more flexibility. The only other phono preamp I have is an Emotiva XPS-1, which isn't too bad, but I want better. What do you think?
Soundcraftsmen Preamps - Phono Stage
to other Soundcraftsmen preamp owners... how would you rate the phono stage in Soundcraftsmen pramps? Have you added a phono preamp before the soundcraftsmen preamp and gotten better sound? I have a DX4100 and a DX3000. they sound good to me, but I don't have any other references to com...
Preamps with phono and a remote - one listener's journey
Hi, I requested that a mod change the title of this thread from Preamp with phono shopping to Preamps with phono and a remote - one listener's journey because I'm no longer shopping, though shopping was the earlier part of the journey. Now . . . I'm tweaking my selected preamp. This is a jour...
New Preamps missing tone controls
It has been discussed before that new manufacture preamps are designed without tone controls. I know of only one preamp from China that has tone controls, but appears not to be near high-end. The reason of a lack of tone controls is for a more 'straight wire' approach. Many assume that makes for ...
