The higher number phono's have output buffers so I imagine they have lower output impedance but can anyone give a spec here or say what is expected for input impedance for best results?
What is required (voltage)for transformers for the different models? The PH10 is differnt requiring less B+ voltage?
I am leaning to building a a 15 but trying to look at all options, I am sticking to MM cartridges at this time but my Soundsmith has pretty low output, are these stages still quiet at 55db gain?
At the present time using a SS Soundsmith pre. It sounds pretty good on on my best LP's but looking for a more forgiving setup that does not highlight every wart and tick on my less than stellar records. A popular phono preamp that I am told that does this is the EAR 834P but I cannot spend that kind of money for what seems to be a very simple design. So that is why I am here? Any help greatly appreciated.
