    GPA at AXPONA - 604-8H-III

    Dudes quoted me ~$700 to remag some drivers and put new gaskets on em - admittedly I don't know if that's a lot but it SOUNDED like a lot.

    Looking at a preamp with 4db of gain. Do you reckon that would present any issues for my potential use case? I appreciate it's hard to say I just have no frame of reference when it comes to a high-sensitivity set up.

    First Tube Amp

    Yep, my current Simaudio is what spoiled me for a modern preamp. Looking mostly at models with adjustable global gain.

    First Tube Amp

    Inspired by Trieu’s 808 horns, I’ve decided to build out a high efficiency, tube powered system of separates to replace my current, “modern” Simaudio/Focal combo. In for a penny, in for a pound. I’m pretty set on using a new-ish solid state preamp with lots of switching functionality and run...

    Favorite sub-$500 phono stages?

    Haven’t tried many in this range but really liked my old Clearaudio Nano v2. Crazy build quality for the price (solid CNC’d case, really tidy PCB), very flexible. Frustrating ergonomics, though.
