NOTE: THE USA DISTRIBUTOR DAN MEINWALD SAYS THEY CAN CONVERT THIS TO 110V FOR $50.
Top of the range, the 834P Deluxe comes in a stunning chrome and gold on/off knob, and has extra attention and quality control. This Deluxe Chrome finish features premium extra rigid heavy chassis, expanded circuit layout to reduce noise floor & premium quality RCA's.
Sonically the Deluxe is 10% better than the basic versions. Has MM & MC option and very high gain so can drive your amp direct without a pre. This is 220 - 240v version. RCA in and out. Mint condition no scuffs or scratches, original tubes still excellent sounding. Been boxed for the past year. The sound is musical with terrific timing, big bass and bass weight and dynamic - no thin anaemic solid state sound here! Surprisingly very very close to the twice the price no holds barred Tim Paravancini's top of the line EAR 88PB.
"What distinguishes the 834P from solid-state phono stages is the sense of openness, scale and three-dimensionality, it's hard to match the warmth and the analogueness of the 834P. It's a great soundstager, a strong defender of the analogue argument and (for those who cherish this one aspect of playback above others) the source of some of the sweetest bass I've heard in years. As for vocals, all I can do is s-i-g-h-h-h."- Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News & Record Review.
"I've listened to 834P in direct comparison to several other commercially produced phono stages, some in its own price range and others up to about twice its price. While not an exhaustive survey of all available phono stages, the 834P easily bested every unit in this price range of those auditioned. The 834P shined brightly in every application."- Jennifer E.
