Hagerman Audio Labs Trumpet
phono preamp one of 3 made
I have mega rare phono preamp
from Hagerman Audio Labs. This is famous Trumpet. The original trumpet has 2
tier design and was mounted inside wooden crate. Few of Trumpet were made to a
higher standards with upgraded parts and choice of RCA/XLR balanced output. Jim
never put this design for mass production, because of cost and time to produce
these. Only 3 were made to special orders.
Needless to say, The Trumpet
surpass all of existing Jim's phono stages and still stays as benchmark of
quality. Even newest $7,000 Trumpet Reference does not have same sound quality,
neither balanced outputs.
From my personal experience with
close to 100 phono stages, I would be placing this in the first 5 best I've
ever heard at any price.
The main unit and power supply
are connected with umbilical cord. Both are in perfect operational and cosmetic
condition. No issues. The tubes are premium Amperex and Brimar ( $600 value).
All tubes were placed at the same time and have 70 hours of burn time.
