  1. Further information: I auditioned a lot of different phonos and I personally haven't heard anything that was as good at the time without spending silly money. While some may want a darker sound the Whest phonos are very neutral but not cold - it's very detailed, well balanced tonally, not too warm or dark sounding, plenty of air and space round the notes with a huge sound stage.

  2. Further information: bought from a fellow SNA member. This is an Australian model from Soundlabs group. Current RRP $3k Couple of scuffs and nicks but not noticeable. Price is firm so don’t bother making offers as I won’t reply. Photos:
  3. Hi all, hoping to tap into your vast experience for some guidance/recommendations. I am looking to upgrade from my very reliable and good sounding Schiit Mani as I want to dabble with MC carts. I have a Audiolab 6000A amplifier, Technics 1200GR TT and Ascension Timberwolf floor standers. While I am happy with my Nagaoka MP200 cart paired with the Mani, I am led to believe that it may not be as proficient with MC carts. As a result I am keen to consider first a phono stage upgrade followed by a decent MC cart (have my eye on the AT 33SA). Pricewise I am looking at up to about $2K or just ove
  4. Further information: Fantastic phono stage, built like a tank, competes with phono stages at triple the cost. Presents as new. Comes with stock power cable. Review below: https://www.hifinews.com/content/primare-r32-£850 Photos:
  5. The Yaqin MS-12B is one of the rare objects in the DIY community to have reached “cult” status. In fact such is its extraordinary price to performance ratio and subjective quality of sound that it can easily challenge far more expensive preamps. Not only is it remarkably well built with high quality parts throughout, but it truly is a musical and 'sound expanding device' which introduces additional dimension, presence and richness via both its line level and phono input selectable source inputs. Extremely well received for it's excellent phono stage, it addi
  6. Item: P.S Audio Nuwave phono convertor Price Range: $800 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Am happy to discuss pricing dependent on condition and age of unit Can pay postage. Have been trying to get hold of one of these now for sometime after a friend hooked his up to my system. Have seen two come up on stereonet and missed out both times.. Would prefer black but if you have a silver one you want to part with, would be happy to hear from you.
  7. Further information: Little introduction needed for this one. Fantastic value and performance MC/MM phono stage. Can read plenty about it online. https://6moons.com/audioreviews/raysamuels/f117.html http://www.raysamuelsaudio.com/products/f-117.html Photos:
  8. Further information: This is the latest version and one of the first in the country. It is less then 2 months old. One thing I have learnt is that it doesn’t matter how good your arm TT or cartridge is, if you’re phono stage isn’t up to the task you are wasting money and forever chopping and changing. This was already a great phono stage but this version has a much more natural and warm presentation. It bested my valve phono stages by a considerable amount. It has XLR out too! I am actually really reluctant to sell this out of all the items I listed. It c
  9. Further information: Bought on the forum a couple of years ago. Upgraded so no longer required. Photos:

  12. Further information: This preamp sounds great when used with turntable (MM only) and connected directly to power amp. It also can be used to soften signal from digital sources while going through valves. I tried using it as phone stage only connecting through to another preamp but found it had insufficient gain. This is consistent with reviews and there is plenty of info and suggestions on this forum how to have it modified to get the best performance. Beautiful worm sound very hard to beat in this price range. The unit on offer is in original condition with original t
  13. Further information: I can't say too much about these phono stage items because I have never actually used them. At the same time, there seems to be plenty of knowledge available via previous SNA postings for the same pieces. I bought them in as new condition, a couple of years ago, with a pre-amp that did not have a phono stage. However I don't use my turntable that often and didn't for a period, then upgraded to another pre-amp with a built in phono stage, so never actually required. As per photos, I have the original packaging so can post anywhere at buyer's e

It was purchased new by me in 2011 and have been sparingly used especially in the last few years as a second system and has never failed to impress. Had every intention to continue keeping this - until a recent decision to upgrade to active speakers means it's time to consolidate my hifi system. Also comes with original double boxes, remote control, final test cert, & even the plinius white gloves. This is a stunning amp with plenty of p
