Mallette Posted May 15, 2008 Share Posted May 15, 2008 It's been a while since this has been visited and with so many young ears turning to records for a "new" experience and so many oldtimers returning to their roots maybe it's a good time to revisit. I am interested in maximum price performance. Now, if your ears say you cannot get squat for less than 2k, that is price performance. However, let's try to concentrate on avoiding raiding the kids college fund. For instance, I use a TCC TC-778 for my 78rpm setup (http://www.phonopreamps.com/) and audiophiles and general listeners are blown away with how good they sound. Paid 63.50 for it. I've never tried it on LP's so I don't know how it would stack up against my Super PAS4i preamp phono section. However, it certainly wouldn't sound awful I am sure. I've seen 78rpm preamps for 300/2k though I find it hard to imagine an improvement that would justify those pricesMy first external was a Musical Fidelity that I paid around 100.00 for and I found it quite nice. I've seen some really nice looking tube preamps at reasonable prices...the Bellari VP129 at 250.00 or so comes to mind. What are your thoughts and experiences?
