Re: Sunfire Classic Control Center - tube preamp

Oh, a car phono tube preamp (just kidding, but it is the Fosgate of Rockford-Fosgate).

I'd love to see the schema.
It should sound like it isn't there!

No Bill. My car system is a Lexicon (recording studio, or home theater processor?) :lol:

Re: Sunfire Classic Control Center - tube preamp

Once I get it in hand I will see about chasing down a schematic on it. If I get one, I will share it with you. :)

Re: Sunfire Classic Control Center - tube preamp

It has gotten a couple of good reviews, and compared favorably with an $8,000.00 phono. So we shall see. :D

Re: Sunfire Classic Control Center - tube preamp

I placed it on Audiogon for $1,650, but......................

It went to one of the guys here for the group's price. \:D/ \:D/

The ad was up for probably 20 minutes at Audiogon, before I cancelled it.

It pays to be in the in crowd. :D

Well I know, and Wayne knows, but I will let him raise his hand. :-#

Hint; it is not Wayne.

Re: Sunfire Classic Control Center - tube preamp

oh it was me.....
the remote is nice, now I can be really lazy.....
the chance of findin a phono board,.....
is like findin a chicken with teeth....
anybody need a tube pre without a phono stage?
I kick my self for not getting the board that poped up about 3 months back.....
deep down I knew I was going to buy one of these, just didn't know when....
I need to listen to that inner voice more often, it's never gotten me into trouble before.... :-" :-" :-" :lol: :lol: :lol:
