Need to have my B and K pro 10mc recapped and new vol pot.
bought new in Mid 90’s great pre.
my best is the aging Onkyo p308, simply smooth, great house sound, has depth, and always works since bought used 10+ years ago. Has a house sound which is deep, rich, and gives recordings a nice warmer rich sound, the b and k, is very neutral.
Saved for extra year and a half, to get the Sanders sound “the preamp” with MM/MC card. This thing is fast, or it seems to push the sound, or something, ads ZERO, house sound, it is the textbook definition of wire with gain, I always use it in stock mode. Simple, no added tone, bass, highs, anything, just allows music to hit speakers as the recording is recorded. So good in,..etc etc.
looks classy, no strange shape, or added large knobs, just a small unit which is flawless and passes recordings through as the recording intended.
Plus Roger is a gem in the audio world, his knowledge, and no BS approach is great.
wanting to get the Onkyo rehabbed soon, and use for another 20 years (I hope)
not a better house sound preamp than that p308. She is my emerald.
makes most my metal demos sound full, and listenable. Sanders plays as it is, which for acoustic, and some rock/ Dylan, eagles, sound amazing. Speakers have zero “s” swerve sounds. Took me 35+ years to achieve what some get in a single paycheck, the journey was a blast, I’m done for a while.
