Good luck on that. A unit with a phono stage will pop up before a phono card for sale. Did you ever consider a stand alone phono pre like a Project?

As Snoop has said, the phono boards do not come up for sale very often.

Good luck on your such, I hope you find one.

Re: WTB: Phono Stage for Sunfire Vacuum Control Center

Hello,
Yea i was hoping someone may have one stashed in box collecting dust somewhere...I'm going to be shipping my preamp off to Audio Horizon ( Joseph Chow ) for upgrades and modifications like replacing the caps with V cap cuTF's silver wire etc.... i thought i'd send the phono stage along and have him wave his wand other that too. Push come to shove, Shindo Labs has a Phono pre amp to die for!

Thanks for the reply's!

I have sent you an Email with the Sunfire Pre Schematic you requested.

Good luck with your upgrade, I had the V Caps in one of my Sunfire Preamps
it was a nice upgrade.

Re: WTB: Phono Stage for Sunfire Vacuum Control Center

That was fast! thank you so much! now i can really get into this mod/upgrade with Joe Chow. I bought my pre amp brand new and haven't fiddled with it once in the almost 20 years I've owned it. ( god, how can it be almost 20 years already? ) Instead of buying something new ( shindo Giscours, i think i might get one anyway because Ken Shindo passed away and I'm not sure how long they might carry on without him. Aside from Bob Carver, Ken Shindo was another man who i respect and his equipment is beyond reproach ) I think the Classic pre has a ton of potential with the availability of new and improved parts. One of the nice things about Audio Horizons is that they will provide a sheet with the specs before and after the mods/upgrades. I'll post or start a upgrade thread when we start and i'll keep everyone informed as to what we do step by step in transforming a very good tube amp into a kick fucking ass tube pre amp!

That sounds like a cool project! Too bad Mr Carver would build a newly updated preamp to go with his new product line.. ](*,) ](*,)
