Amazing phono stage that really does compete with the mega-buck tubed big boys.
Amazingly lively dynamic sound here, nothing like all the SS phonos I've
had over the years. In a blind test, most audiophiles would certainly
consider this a tubed stage. Tons of detail and just a bright clear
sound that can best be described as "live" sounding.
I had a
standard Groove many years ago and this strikes me as a completely
different phono stage. Apparently the various Lithos upgrades over the
years have continually lowered noisefloor and increased dynamics. You
can't go wrong with this guy!
Has separate power supply and I will include an upgraded power cord. Brand new thick 14AWG 6 ft cord.
Loading is adjustable from 112, 126, 144, 168, 250, 333, 500 and 1000 ohms. The gain
is set for cartridges of between 0.2 mv to 0.6 mv output. Instructions are included.
It is in great cosmetic shape with just slightest signs of use, nothing glaring. Black plexi looks excellent under bright light.
I will cover domestic insured ground and paypal. International buyers to cover flat rate shipping of $50.
Feel free to send along any questions or offers and I'll do my best...
