Default RIAA Phono Pre-Amp for Tubelab SSE

I need an RIAA Phono Pre-Amp for the Tubelab SSE that I am building. Much like the directions and help in this forum for the Tubelab products. I need something fairly simple that does a quality job. I have looked at a myriad of these available in the other forums here on diyAudio and the more I read the more confusing it gets. Has anyone built anything like this? Tube or SS doesn't matter.

Thanks for any help.

I gotta be honest I considered building one then came across this and bought the Phono1+

Vista Audio - one step ahead

It works a treat and whilst I have enjoyed building the SE330B I'm not sure I could have worked out how to out together a really good RIAA phono.

I love this Tavish phono preamp.

Available as a PCB or a full kit. I built the kit and it sounds great

I built one of Richards VSPS mono kits (no longer available) 3 years ago and I am considerig building his emerald boards. He will sell kits. I upgraded the loading resistors and the output caps.

There is the Salas simplistic and folded solid state and valve itch phono stages. I have built the solid state unit and have been very happy. There were/are kits available in the group buy forum and Salas is great at supporting his designs

Thanks everyone. evanc I am very interested in the valve itch phono stages, just hard to find someone who has built it and pictures, I am probably looking in the wrong place. And I am leaning towards a tube phono preamp.

If you want to avoid building from scratch: Look on eBay for EAR 834P; then if you feel like it you can do some of the mods and upgrades well talked about on the 'net.

e.g. Finished MM RIAA Turntables Ear834 Tube Phono Amplifier (12AX7) + O trannsformer | eBay
