Extra Info: I have built a few others of these tube phono preamps based on the better version of the Radi0kit phono kit. They have all sold. This version includes the better parts; Nichicon, Wima, Phillips, Cornell Bubilier, Vishay amd Dale. The standard tube which this build comes with are JJ 12AX7 but any direct equivalent can be rolled here. PS is external and has seperate filament and HT ccts. The HT is choke double Pi choke filtered with 400uf of filtration. The choke is a Hammond 5H choke. The filament voltage is 12.3VDC. A 24V wall wart supplies the external PS with AC. The enclosed has bituminised/heavy Al deadening. 


The phono preamp is dead quiet and a dream to listen to. Plenty of bass and a good balance all over. Very dynamic.
