In my setup FT-3 interstage sounds worse combined with Mundorf SGO output (possible the guilty are Senns HD600 that have a little bass coloration), FT-3 sounds better combined with Obbligatos (fast & direct) or Auricaps (round & warm) all combos tested in my setup.

At this moment I don't listen the Amphom PIO copper foil over emphasized mids (are in break-in process could change) I'm waiting after break-in open more the highs & also continue tight & focused bass (will be perfect) but who knows will be the final sound...

P.S. congrats again your simplistic njfet RIAA is more silent (helped with R-Core Tx) that my Linn Linto & the Linto is considered by the majority of people the most silent commercial phono preamp.

That is why they call it subjective preferences. All those parts mentioned are excellent in general for what they are or for cost to performance ratio. A different TT, amp, speakers, even peripheral parts to the caps like your own choice resistors, can make different soups. Enjoy as you like best. Cheers.

I'd like to give the GE caps a try - type Z97F5011, PIO-caps with no PCB. Good sounding caps, normally used in PSU. Another suggestion are Aerovox caps.

@ Salas:
Have you tried the J308/310 JFets instead of the SK170? They have a Ciss of ~ 5pF...

I have used some in cascodes in psus. Their 6nVsqrtHz en is no good for the phono.

Default Interstage Caps

Aaaaarg, when changed the headshell leads to Cardas 33ga with premium PCC Ag/Rh clips I forget to change the VTF so the cart was working with a lot of more weight: finally reached the reason FT-3 sounds bad in interstage position combineds with Mundorfs SG PIO as output cap, now the clear winner is FT-3, yes the cheap FT-3!!! but at this time Amphom copper foil PIO aren't yet finished the break-in period. I do the test with classical music & now I understand the reason bad sound due to the fact FT-3 are so dense with real deep lows, hyper detailed mids & transparents highs combined with the Mundorfs SG PIO as output cap (the extra weight increased bass & mids to a level of distortion area & missing highs). Will see when Amphoms copper foil PIO where finished break-in time, now the sound is as found in a good paper-in-oil cap: the treble rolloff and bass slowness vs FT-3...

Merlin,
I am glad you worked it out. If I understand your comments you now like the Mund SG and Ft-3 combo.

I am getting ready to measure the simplistic finally. Finally sorta figured out the 1616m interface and have been able to obtain some decent direct connect noise spectra. Attached are the before (MAudio) and the present measurement system (EMU1616m). Night and day!!!! Will be interesting tosee what the riaa will look like with all of the issues I have had in the past with ground loops.

Both are calibrated for 1Vrms = 0dB

That EMU looks like a 20dB better noise floor card than the M-Audio. Good investment for a stationary PC it seems. What is its best online price currently?
