Here's another plug for Gary Dodd and his products in general and this unit in particular.

I lusted after Gary's gear for years, but couldn't justify buying any because I had a killer system that I spent many, many hours optimizing, modifying and coddling to get it to the point that it met all of my needs as well as my wife's (Gayle is music lover like me). After hearing the Dodd battery powered gear at RMAF, I had to have the Buffer and the Stereo amp. I have never been happier with audio equipment in my life. I've owned dozens of amps and preamps. I can honest say that this is the best gear that I have ever owned.

The Buffer is the most transparent piece of audio gear that has been in my stable. I don't know how he does it for the price. Awesome is only a word............

I see no one is paying attention to this wonderful offer. You guys are missing out on one of the best sounding frontends on the market today and it is affordable and lots of fun to build. The special is still on at $325 free shipping for the basic kit. All else can be seen at doddaudio.com on the DIY page

I see you offer a phono kit - what is the price?

Cheers,

Bob

as great as the DODD buffer is,(as I have replaced my Grounded Grid peramp with it just recently) you can take it one step further by replacing the pot with a warpspeed LDR.
This added the magic.
I had the GG for about 3 years and went through many tweaks and it was a good sounding preamp but not very involving.

the dodd buffer/Warpspeed is taking me into the music further than I have ever been, and I am still on the stock tube.

I would be interested to see what Mr. Dodd thinks about this mod?!? I would certainly like to find out the differences in sonics and how it has improved them.

Gary, you out there?

Its not much of a mod what you are doing is simply replacing the pot. not much difference that tube rolling, whats cool is the LDR runs off the same battery
