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!

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. :)

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

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
