Hi all, I am looking into getting into vinly. i am new to this (21 yrs old) and have spent all the money i have made in the last 4 years on hifi. My current system is: BAT VK75 SE Belles 21A Chord Signature Interconnect and speaker cable jps kaptovator power cords moon eclipse cd player And i am buying a Vpi scout JMW9 table and arm with a shelter 501 cart. This is where i need to decide on a decent phono pre. i have been told to go with the tom evans micro groove or the ASR mini basis. You guys got any suggestions on these or other pre's? I have bought all of this equiptment used so i wouldnt be afraid of buying this piece used as well. thanks in advance
Harmon Kardon Citation I preamp. Best phono section I've ever heard. Blew away Audio Research and Counterpoint. Dynamic, detailed and yet smooth. Seldom find them on ebay for $400. This preamp has only MM. It works awsome with Music Reference RM-4 step up for my VDH MC head.
hey thanks so much for all the help. anybody know where i could find a used wright wpp100c? also who mods the EAR units? i guess none of you have heard the tom evans or the ASR units? I guess if i buy the wright ill need the step up for my mc cart. thanks
second the dynavector p-75...true giant killer especially low output mc's. because relatively few own one in the states(it's big across the pond) you don't hear very much about it. check out this month's hi-fi+ for a great review...
