Thought I'd share my latest lockdown refresh.  I initially had this installed in my 1962 GE Record Changer Console, but I'm in limbo of a work relocation and had pulled it out...upon finding it I figured I would build it out to use with my CFA (I gave my tubes to my sister with the amp I built her...so I have to wait for the weekend to have a listen with my garage speakers as my main speakers are also packed)

Very clever / slick circuit...single PT vs the GG's three...inexpensive tube compliment vs the Masterpiece.

I don't have anything to compare it against at the moment...but with all these inputs I will finally get some proper A/B's with all these DAC's I seem to have accumulated.

Currently listening with IEMs and a SS headphone amp...tone control are gentle and brilliant.  Treble adds true high fidelity sparkle while the bass boost doesn't muddy the kick drum and bass guitar.

Looks good, I built just stock, but I like the CD film caps, great idea. I just used some another driver board, Sound great and great value.  Are those tantalum caps on the tone knobs? What value? I am using standard JJ tubes that were provided, have you tried any tube rolling?

I had the CD caps in my stash and had favorable results using them in other projects vs polyester caps...I should have ordered the input stage coupling caps to match when I needed new tone control caps (stock value MLCC), however the sound is excellent so far.  I am also using supplied JJ tubes.

What do you mean you used "some other driver board?"

I meant a different project used for a drive board on Bob Latino m125. They like the Russian pio thought I'd try something different. Why didnt you use the delay?

It will be used with a tube power amp...and I'm the only one who operates the gear.  I know to turn on the pre-amps before power amps and turn off the power amps first.

real easy to install if I ever feel the need.
