    Preamp Comparison

    Post by TN Allen on Sun Mar 16, 2014 11:09 am

    I hesitate to ask the following because it partially involves a SS preamp, but would like to know what others think regarding the comparison between the Tubes4HiFi PAS 3X upgrades including the phono upgrade, and a Hagerman Bugle2 preamp: http://www.hagtech.com/bugle2.html

    I've built another turntable and am considering locating the Bugle2 preamp in the plinth. I've read good reviews of it and it seems a good idea, however, as I already have the upgraded PAS 3X and like the sound very much, I'm wondering if there really is likely be any significant difference using the Buggle2.

    I've built both and in an A/B comparison couldn't notice much difference. IMHO, it's a win-win. As an aside, I do like the 12AYs in the SP10.
