In the next day or two, I will be obtaining a Sony TA-2000 (not the "F" version) pre-amp. This is the result of trading in some other items I have no real use for and consider the move as paring things down a bit. I have been curious about these Sony pre-amps for a couple of years and am attracted by their appearance plus they are not commonly found and from reading, seem to be somewhat desirable. The pre-amp I have primarily been using since mid 2015 has been an APT Holman which I like very much both the sonic character and versatility. Adopting the Sony will require one of the signal routers on hand in order to accommodate all or most of what I have plugged into the Holman. One thing about the Holman which I thought remarkable was how quiet it was. I have yet to "audition" the Sony but intend on listening for how much noise is present when on phono with no sources connected and volume at full. I was wondering if any here would know or maybe speculate on what I will hear when I do this. It will be by ear, without test equipment.
