Is it a good choice for a pre-amp for my inverted Gainclone? I heard it had a great phono section so when I saw it I grabbed it. All the RCA jacks needed resoldering but it seems to work and sound nice enough. Thanks.

It will work until you can either build or buy something better. I bought one in 1981, it did not get replaced until 1988. The sound is a little hazy and the dynamics are soft. These sold for 150.00 list when new, hope the price for it was low.

Default Thanks Panelhead(NAD advice)

Suggestions for a better Pre project? All we talk about here are POWER amps. Pre-amps would make a good new topic. I got it for $90 Canadian which is probably NOT a good deal considering it needed work.

Really? To me, the fact that it needed work adds a little in the "fun" potential...

Hey Peter,
It loooks like the NAt Semi chips are available in "die format"
Maybe these are like the "naked" Vishay resistors and sound super! You better find out!!! Also gives better access to have an even shorter feedback loop. Better get a good magnifier though.
