Just to be clear they wanted $350 + the price of the card which is $750, so my total was goning to be $1,100 bucks. That seems alot if it is just indeed a plug and play application.

When I had my VK-3i, I bought a VK-3P here on Audiogon and had it installed in less than 10 minutes. I sold the VK-3i and removed the VK-3P to put into my new VK-3iX. Again, less than 10 minutes. I sold the VK-3iX with the phono board installed, so I didn't remove it again.
This was awhile ago and I do remember talking to Viktor about the install before I started. There was one little aspect to the install that needed you to pay close attention to, but I really don't remember what it was. I never had a problem with either preamp working with the VK-3P.
$350 seems WAY too much for a pretty simple install. Are you sure that is the right price?
Thanks for looking Swampwalker - any help I can get would be much appreciated.
Mofi - He (Victor) quoted my $1100 bucks + shipping. The VK is $750 so that means install is indeed $350, and as I've said he said he doesn't sell them for DIY anymore. So I wont be buying it new, I will buy it used and do it myself if it seems doable by me, that's why I need the instructions.
WOW! I wish my income was going up at that rate. A couple of years ago that VK-P3 card was $500. Maybe you could place a wanted ad out there. I'm sure there are BAT preamp or integrated amp users out there who may have the VK-P3 and are not using it (digital only). You may be able to pick one up for $200-$300 and install it yourself.
