Any reason this is not a viable solution ? I hope so . As Bob may attest, it looks like a long winter indoors.
I have added a Hagerman Bugle2 solid state phono preamp to my zmod PAS3 as follows
TT to outboard phono preamp input
Phono preamp output to burner input
Burner output to preamp line level input.
The cd burner can now be used with no harm to the phono board.
When I get an urge to record,i just swap the cables at the turntable, and set my PAS to the input my burner uses.
It seems to work great, Takes about ten seconds to swap the cables, acts as a tape loop, and has the added benefit allowing me to monitor the recording levels.
For daily listening i use the zmod phono stage.
I do like it better, but the Bugle is also very good.
I have used a Yaquin buffer but it attenuates the signal too much for the burner to compensate for.
