Absolutely!

Just spotted difference 2 for the MKII, the MC/MM switch. The MK1 uses internal jumpers (that may actually be preferable).

I am stoooooopid when it comes to these things but will this work as a replacement for the JRC 2068D Op-Amp?

The signal path oppies are dual devices so you would need op275. It will work, it will be different, will it be better, probably? hmmmm expensive gamble.

Op amps can be very subjective, and which to use where is science and to some extent hard trial and error listening etc. Many would consider this knowledge/experience part of their marketable skill.


Nite nite.

I spent about $50 more for a Pass Pearl. More thump, more goosebumps. I think that the the VSPS is an excellent "budget" option. A good friend of mine just built the cheap battery version of the Hagerman and it's not too bad either. His total cost: $65

G jou doring!

I now am starting to think this is the reason my DIY phono amp doesnt want to work... It uses the same tiny regulators!! I fed it the same dual rail 12v instead of 24v...

Today no regulator will stand!

Gliding-Cheese,

You'll pay less if you punch in AD797 on the RS link.
Life will be simpler if could decide whether you will use the phono-pre for MC or MM, if you are serious of rebuilding the phony-box.

Jacco... okay where do I begin?

Mainly MC as I have 4 different MC cartridges at my disposal and only 1 MM...

At the moment I feel like trashing the whole Phon'y'-box cause it is driving me mad. Today, whilst changing ceramic caps I have busted & lifted two PCB track!! Makes me sizzle with anger!

I think I should rather just get a decent new phono stage or at least a pre-owned one.

Should maybe have read: Now I have killed the thing - my non teperature contriolled solder station it is a piece of crap!!

The pads lift easy, I normally destroy the old component when modding, Ie have only one leg to deal with at a time.

You said it!

I have a run-off-the-mill Weller soldering iron - temprature controller? Whats that?

Will have to invest in one...
