I'm sure it is.

It was probably a little premature for Wayne to let us know about it so soon.

It will come out, and the boards will sell out surely,

Yeah...

My phono stage went belly up a few months ago and this would be perfect.

Hi All,
Would this phono stage have enough gain for my AT33PTG 0.5mV output cartridge, or would i need an step up transformer?
I yes, count me in for a set of PCB's.
Many Thanks
Ian

You need a stepup with the Pearl I, Pearl II should have more gain to drive passive pre's.

The pearl worked just fine with a Lyra Dorian... 0.7mV, but had squashed dynamics with a 0.2mV Mayware MC.

Thanks guys, useful to know.
So i should be fine without the step up's, this appeals to me by keeping it simple, and saves more cash for vinyl.

Can you describe the sound quality of the pearl, is this a high end design?
This might sound a bit stupid, but i have only heard a couple of designs and am currently using a CA 640p, good but not considered high end.
Thanks
Ian
