Pro-Ject phono box DS plus. Members with built in units need not to answer.
Had it almost a year and really enjoy it.
What´s the maximum gain on it?
Hagerman Bugle with Hagerman power supply, custom built by Sushimaster. Dead quiet, black backround. My DL-110 sings through it.
I use an iFi iPhono 2 ...
No, sorry. It is pretty "functional" looking, as there is no cover. The Bugle and Power Supply are mounted to a "bread board" and there are small rubber feet under it.
It was built expertly, and the Bugle runs optimally due to the matching power supply. I love this thing, and would not trade it for a $1000 pre amp.
Musical Surrounding Phonomena 2+, 60 db Gain
Creek Audio OBH-15MK2, 80 db Gain
80 dB MC or MM?
I posted a picture of my Parasound P5 preamp by mistake.
Meant to post this: Parasound JC3+ Phono Preamp.
Here are the Gain specs:
MM: 48 dB
MC: 64 dB
Musical Fidelity XLPs and PSU. Old now but sounds good to these ears. Cool looking too
Lounge Audio LCR MKIII

What is Lounge modded?
Dynavector P75 MK3
Got fed up with trying them, and
Changed my passive for a Croft
Vitale. It overdrove. So i sent it to
Glenn Croft who configured it for my
Power Amp , a Leak TL 12+ X 2
And upgraded phono stage.
Simply the best ,at any price.
Pleasantly surprised . The line stage also superb.
Found I really didn't need anything fancier than an Emotiva XPS-1
Heed Quasar--two box solution that does MM/MC and has a wide gain flexibility--52/58/68 on the low output stage and 62/68/78(!) on the high output and you can either output with the MC or MM sections. Sound is incredible--checks my mantra of maximum detail with retained smoothness. Great piece--wish it had more MC load options but I can't see myself getting out of the Soundsmith family and it covers them off perfectly.
My main phono stage is an Audio Research PH5- it sounds especially great when combined with its 'brother' ARC LS17. I also have an AVID Pulsus phono stage but I rarely use it as the LS17 and PH5 have such a great synergy effect when combined.
