michaelwjones Posted June 27, 2022 Share Posted June 27, 2022 More house cleaning. This 2018 vintage preamp was retubed in 2021 with NOS tubes: Telefunken smooth plates for the phono section, RCA & Sylvania 6SN7s and to the best of my recollection, Amperex 12AX7s. The silver face unit has no sonic or mechanical issues and the most minor of swirls and smudges in the black gloss painted chassis. The SLP-98P incorporates pairs of 12AX7 and 12AU7 tubes, for MM phono gain and buffering, respectively. Covers for the phono tubes to help prevent microphonics; RIAA equalization and mu-metal shielding on the chassis. The Cary preamp uses a separate box to house its power supply containing a frame-type transformer, a choke, and two smoothing capacitors. The power supply has separate regulators for the two channels' filament and B+ voltages. This are connected to the preamp through a multi-conductor umbilical cord. The SLP-98P has a volume/balance-control beginning with pair of 100k ohm pots (one for each channel) for adjusting balance, continuing to an remote controlled Alps pot. The selector switch is a five-position rotary and there are separate two-way toggle switches for muting and the tape monitor. The back row has the five pairs of input jacks, plus monitor loop and two pairs of outputs.
