Ill be running it with my VTA ST120 that I got from Bob. Also I recently acquired Maggie 1.7is that so far I'm extremely pleased with. Next Im going to get the PH14 or the PH16 phono preamp. Which one should I get?? Any recommendations are appreciated.
Here's the listing and a pic of the SP14. Thoughts?
I am the second owner. The original owner purchased the unit new in 2014 for a second system. The unit was built by Roy Mottram, the original designer of the preamp. The original owner upgraded the unit to include Jupiter HT caps, additional Mundorf caps, new ofc wire for DAC and Tuner inputs, new upgraded resistors, new Khozmo 48 step volume control, Bendix Rectifier tube and 4 NOS RCA (WGTA) 6SN7 tubes. He virtually upgraded all of the sonically critical parts. The faceplate and rear panel are cosmetically excellent. The top cover has two small scratches and some inconsistencies in the finish that may be the result of poor anodizing, but not that bad really, thus the 7/10 rating. Other than that, the preamp functions flawlessly and sounds great.
includes the following:
2x Electro Harmonix 6SN7
4x TungSol re-issue 6SN7
4x RCA WGTA NOS 6SN7 (purchased from Brent Jessee)
4x Sylvania NOS 6SN7WGT brown base
1x Bendix 6X5
The EH and TungSol tubes are new with less than 100 hours on each.
