Bottlehead Foreplay with chipamp
I'm running an LM3875 that was loaned to me by a friend from another forum. I liked it enough that I've ordered parts to build my own. I have an Arcam integrated that I was running before and I don't really think its the most logical idea to run an integrated like that when you are using an outboard amp you like, so I was thinking about Audiogoning it and building a Foreplay. Does anyone here use a Foreplay with a chipamp? I'm using Omega Hemptone speakers. Sources are an Arcam Alpha 7SE (internal dacs but thinking about getting a NOS dac) and Music Hall MMF-2.1 TT.

You'll also need a phonostage for your TT. The FP is linestage only.

Yeah, I knew that but I just meant is there any issue in general with interaction of the Foreplay, chipamp and speakers I named etc. Thanks for the response.

It would work fine - the only problem might be too much gain. Go to theBottlehead forum and ask around. Very helpful folks hang out there.
