Phono Preamp Wanted

Post by indyaudio » Mon Dec 26, 2011 1:24 pm

I am looking for a decent external phono preamp for my newly acquired Carver Tube Preamp (no phono stage option on this one).

Never have owned an external phono preamp before. I do see some reasonably priced on Ebay and at Acoustic Sounds and Audio Advisor. Before buying one new, thought I would see if anyone has one here for sale they are not using. I'll be using this with a Rega Planar P2/Ortofon MM cartridge.

Pls let me know what you have, model, condition, price, and a photo if you can, if not, I can google it. PM me, thanks.

Look on eBay for a Yaqin tube phono pre- they have one for MM that is usually @ $200 delivered. Sounds pretty darned good too!

Thanks Chauss, they look pretty cool.

Would be interested in someone's preamp that they have upgraded or are no longer using before I buy new here, thanks
