Thanks Peter, I will give it a try. Will the opamp fit on a regular project board that I can get from Radio Shack?

Hey all.
Well, Peter, all I can say is that every time you put forth a design it is always well thought out and truly professional looking...Congrats on that!
I am considering building one of these to replace my ARC PH3SE, which, while a truly nice piece of gear, just doesn't really have enough gain for the LOMCs that I enjoy using.
I am wondering - has anyone done any subjective comparison between this and any other good phono stages? I have quite a bit of listening experience with the Pass Xono, Whest 2, Rossner und Sohn, but ultimately would like to build something...
Regards,
Byron

North of the 49th it was rebranded as "The Source" when Circuit City bought them...

Well, I know a guy who used to listen through ARC PH7 to his heavily modified Versa Dynamic with ZYX Universe. After he tried this phono stage, he "hates" going back to PH7

The boards are $40/pc plus $6 shipping, usual paypal address.

I still didn't decide on a kit as a total cost is quite high, but for now, I can supply most of the parts including V-Caps. No BGs though, as sourcing them presently is practically impossible.

J511 is not really expensive if you know where to find it. I've been also successfully using 1N5314 as an alternative. The board is designed in such a way that you can basically install anything there.

"K" is additional pad for axial components (also means Cathode).
