Notwithstanding the presence of all the Gurus here, may I meekly suggest that you have a look at this circuit - the RJM 6DJ8 ? I am more or less in your category and when I was looking for tube based phonostage I narrowed the search down to the RJM and another circuit from TNT Audio The major criterion was the E88CC tube.

Frank here was helpful in making that choice firmly in favour of the RJM plan. He further offered valuable advice in tweaking the circuit. I am very pleased with the sound.

Bottlehead doesn't always take 6 weeks. I got my Seduction (this past Friday) in 3 weeks. My Foreplay (with Anticipation and Sweet Whispers) in 3 DAYS.

My Paramours were a bit longer, but understandable.

I'm about 80% of the way through construction, and I will say that I have NEVER seen or read anything detailing construction like this. With the Cornet, you may get a circuit board; with the Seduction, you'll learn things that will stand you in good stead for every piece of equipment you build in the future.

Just my opinion, of course.

I have personally listened to the Seduction from a friend and they sound magnificent, highly recommended. As for do it yourself, I recommend Steve Bench RIAA5 designed, that uses 12AY7 and 6DJ8s, I personally have these and compared them with the Seduction. At first, the seduction sounded better, but maybe it was because of the caps and resistors that I was using on the RIAA network, they were no name brand polystyrene, then after replacing them with panasonic polypropylenes from digi-key, they now sounded just as good, if not better than the Seductions. But for the price and simplicity, Seduction is the way to go.
