I own a used Klyne PX-3.5 phono pre-amp, and do not have the owners manual. I want to install a Shelter 501 II Cartrdige on my VPI Classic Turntable, and would like to know where to set the internal switches on the Klyne. I cannot find any owners manual on the 'net', and was wondering if anyone out there has a scanned copy of one? Or recommendations on the settings? Thanks in advance.
Nandric, How do you like the Klyne in comparison to your other high end solid state phono stage? I find my tweaked 6LX to be first rate as a linestage and therefore great when coupled with one of my preferred tube phono stages. But as a stand alone phono source, I thought it fell a bit short of the best of my other possible phonolinepreamplifiers. Maybe that just reveals my bias for tubes. There is certainly nothing faulty with the 6LX.
Dear Lew, I must confess that I prefer comfort above perfection.
To me enjoyment is somehow connected with comfort. So I never
tested my Basis Exclusive (''gold'') in optimal way. The thing is
an nightmare to adjust because the cover plate need to be removed
and pre pulled out of the rack for any adjustment. So I connected my
Reed 3P with 100 Ohm + 4th amplification with one pre and my
(''new'') Sumiko 800 with 500 Ohm + 3th amplification to the
other pre (Basis has two independent phono-pres in the same
My Klyne 7PX 3.5 I use with Denon AU-S1 SUT which cover 2-
40 Ohm carts. The most of my MC carts are low-ouput but
with different impedance. So I use Klyne in its lowest amplification
equvalent to MM pre. My quess is 40dB . Changing carts is more
easy than by Basis but the cover plate on which the SUT is
placed need also to be removed for any adjustement. My exuse
is that simplicity has its own value while the question ''why complex
if simple is sufficent'' adds some extra weight to the asserted
