  1. Fab phono stages

    IME fab = money.I must have had the best part of 30 phono stages turn up to my bake off's over the years and heard many more at other peoples.Last Saturday 3 more turned up ranging from 1K,I think, up to a home built unit that cost 6K in parts alone. There haven't been many instances where the higher price of a unit didn't equate to better SQ,although the Puresound was a notable exception,the Vida is also very good,but I prefer valve based units as rolling the stock tubes can alter the sound to my taste,as demonstrated last week by swapping out some Mullards for Raytheons in my NVO,everyone preferred the latter tubes for the extra life they gave. Just my experiences of course.

    Not your kind of bass Harv.

    I thought the NVO and Vida were pretty impressive,but Daves "Better than Jim's" phono produced bass the like of which I didn't think was possible with my system.

    If that was the factory units in Woking,I used to service an RO water system there until they moved,the reception was impressive,but I was not allowed to wander to far in the factory area sadly.

    If you think Harv's musical choices leave a lot to be desired,you obviously haven't met Whizzkid.
