I'm moving up the phono stage grade and am parting with my beloved Mark 2. I am the original owner and have been happy with this unit since I got it a few years ago. I upgraded the stock tubes to GE JAN 5751's from Upscale Audio and that made all the difference - opened up and deepened the sound. The tubes have about 250 hours on them, give or take. The tubes alone were $180. This phono stage takes my Benz/VPI set-up and turns it into a beautiful vinyl experience. Shift on the fly settings for cartridge type and loading. My 2.5mV Benz Micro Ace MC is running at the MM/47K setting and sounds beautiful. I've also run a .5 mV Hana SL on the Low MC/300 ohms setting with equal sonic sparkle.
This is the upgraded model of the JD 9; the Jolida website has all the details. Maintained in a pet-free, smoke-free home and like a Wilbury, handled with care.
Buy with confidence from a trusted and long-term A'goner. I pick up shipping if you're close to my asking price; you pick up Paypal. Happily to arrange local pick-up within a few hours of St. Louis.
