Wanted phono stage

Unread post by Vinyl-ant » Tue Feb 11, 2020 6:17 pm

As the title says, I'm after a phono stage
My Benedict audio has developed an annoying intermittent fault that's getting on my nerves, and my Cole lcr is broken and about to go off to nick to be looked at. Wether the Cole is terminal, I dont know. Hope not.

Moving Magnet is fine, anyone got owt?

Found it - Phono Box SE

Finding the power supply is another matter :doh:

Think I've found it - it's the correct voltage, anyways.

PM me your address again and I'll get it in the post to you...

I’ve got a Graham Slee 1 here doing nothing. Way better than ProJect phono I also have, back in it’s box.

Hi marlin, Paul is lending me the project stage to put me on until I get a replacement in the same league as the Benedict audio that's playing silly buggers
Which Graham slee stage is it?

It’s the Graham Slee - Gram Amp 1

I’m currently using a Shitt Mani, I’m very very impressed with it, considering it’s humble price point.

I'll look into the graham slee range, at the moment I can't decide wether to buy new or used.
I have been looking at the mofi studio phono at 300 quid, the reviews are all saying things I like. I need something that's pretty neutral as I use the rig it for testing builds aswell as just listening normally.
I just found another phono stage, a nuvistor based one I built about 5 years ago. With half a power supply........
