Putting a new little system together for the house. I have a pair of La Scala II on their way to me. Still shopping for a nice turntable. I plan on using a Fisher 500C as my integrated amp - but it is currently being restored professionally and I wont get it back for about (3) months ! Well needless to say, I cant have those speakers just sitting in a box for three months.... I would like to pick up something in the meantime. More than likely I will want to get rid of it when my fisher comes in, so maybe re-sell it. Im looking for something that will sound pretty good and not break the bank. Would love to stick with tubes, but ones in nice / working condition are pricey. I just read some reviews that were pretty good on some lower end (Chinese) tube stuff (Monoprice) here is the link to their web site. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=27222 Now I know you get what you pay for - but anyone here own it? Maybe it would be fine for something to use for a few months and keep as a back up..... Or if there are some other suggestions - I would love to hear them. Thanks for your help and advice, Ted
Hi guys, in need of some expert advice here please. So here goes, I am about to purchase a Yaqin Mc-13s to use with my Project RPM1 carbon, my question(s) is: do I need to use a pre amp with this setup?, now I’ve heard in some videos that you need to use one with your turntable however I am under the impression that this amp is an “intergrated amplifier” and therefore has a pre amp built in, it has a separate circuit for the preamp stage so why would I need a pre amp? The RPM1 has a phono output and the Yaqin has phono inputs, so it should work right? Or Wrong? I was hoping I could use this Yaqin amp with my Project RPM1 and Klipsch RP-150M speakers. It would be a shame if it didn’t work without a pre amp as I have done much research into tube rolling for the Yaqin and I have found some matched pair Mullard NOS 12AU7 and 12AX7 pre amp tubes that I would like to use eventually, this setup would be coming in at just my budget and as far as I am aware this would be an amazing setup for very little money (£1000-£1500). Im very new to the tube amp market and was hoping I could get a leg up from you guys, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Budding Audiophile Legsman222
