I am surprised, my Paradise phono has much better low level details compared to my Pass XOno clone , a design similar but better than Pearl Two.

The Xono should sound very different from the Pearl and the Paradise.

The Paradise is exceptional..... but I found more detail in my fet build.

I heard many versions of the Paradise. From an extremely fatt and tuby sounding version with a Tube PSU to more brighter specimen.
I can say one thing : there is no superiour topology. It is all in the details and execusion ones the design is " transparent ". I mean : Low Noise, Low enough distortion, flat RIAA; low crosstalk, etc.
That makes it so difficult to recommend a particular design.

Hello together,

I'am planning to build my own paradise phono-pre amp, maybe you can give me some advice on the best way to approach this project. It has been a while since I built my last diy-hifi project (So far, 2x Symasym, LSQR-preamp, some modified china-ebay DAC &some headphone amps).

1. Where can I get the required PCBs?
2. Is this the latest BOM available: google docs?

Regards,
Christian
