I needed a decent RIAA, and have found that I really like the sound of J-Fets. Maybe its purely metaphysical, maybe not. Still I am thrilled with the sound of of this thing. It it buildt with the kit from Boozehound Labs ebay listing.
At first I thought it sounded somewhat "too fast", too dynamic, too..."bouncy"..but when settled in..I am just flabbergasted by how sweet sound so little money can buy.
The only thing is the power supply. I have tried to different wallwarts, both incredibly noisy, and both switchmode, allthough my latest is regulated it still produce a lot of noise. So, I am building a Sigma 11 to power this thing, I'll have to live with the noice for now, it will only be for a couple of months anyway.
Pictures to come when I remove it from my setup to take som gut-pictures .
