Default "Equal Opportunity" MM Pre

SY's newest baby in LA Volume 7.

I don't think that the 3.18uS compensation (Neumann) is necessary (the 91R):

Without it you'd be hard pressed to get an RIAA network which hugs the curves so tightly:

I can't wait to start soldering this one up!

The second chart is deviation from RIAA with gain at 1kHz set to 0. I guess -2.22e-16 is pretty close to zero. If it performs this well, it's to the standards of the best phono pre's reviewed by Stereophile.

With luck, I'll have the new PCBs up, running, and tested this weekend. "Real" work and an overdue AX article got in the way.

This will work great with a TD 124. Very curious to see this.

Here's an idea for a bias supply -- if you run the filaments from a.c. the LR8N3 will regulate the 150+ B+ to a convenient level for the LT3439 quiet switcher. The output is filtered and regulated with an LT3015 for a very quiet bias supply to the P-channel jfet:

in surface mount, the entire thing should take up real estate of less than 2 square inches.

Yes. The next issue of Linear Audio will have details. Suffice it to say that the performance is reasonably good, if by "reasonably good" one means distortion that challenges the test set residuals (-100dBV) and overload margins that exceed 50dB ref 5mV.
