I guess there aren't many folks familiar
I see you posted this on the 18th, however if you haven't made your purchase yet I can highly recommend the Tavish Design 6SL 7 vintage phono pre. I've had it in my system now for about 3 months. After two years of switching out phono preamps, some which were very good, I still wasn't happy. With the Tavish in my system my search is over and I'm just enjoying the music. It does not add any coloration or overt "tube warmth", it just excells at bringing the music alive. It's all there, transparency, soundstage, dynamics but adds more of an analog experience than any of the other phono pre I've owned IMHO, not to mention its hand made for you in New York State and priced very well. See Steven Guttenberg's CNET review for more info and specs. Hope this helps and good luck with your search, or enjoy what you purchased!
