Question: How dramatically does this phono preamp change throughout break-in?
I hear distortion (spittiness and splashy bass as if it is running out of power) and a flat soundstage.
I am using the stock power cord and umbilical.
I compared it to my other three phono preamps - Hagerman Bugle, V-LPS, Biotronics Control Systems Gestalt (outstanding and extremely rare). They all are much clearer and cleaner.
It must be mentioned that I requested the Ebay seller to provide a reduction in global gain since I have loads of it with my Project Sunrise II headphone amp. They added a switch on the rear that cuts gain by about 5 dB.
