Excellent phono preamp and head amp (stepup for moving coil cartridge) hand built by Jim Hagerman. 
From Jim on the kickstarter campaign: "The Cornet3 is a radical evolution of the highly acclaimed circuit I  developed and introduced about a dozen years ago. If you are seeking top-notch electronics to bring out the best in your turntable and vinyl collection, look no further. For those of you with moving coil cartridges, I am including the Piccolo2, a re-designed active head-amp with up to 26dB gain, built into a matching enclosure...

...you would have to spend well over $2000 to get the equivalent performance from anyone else in the industry. That makes the Cornet3 and Piccolo2 incredible bargains."

The Cornet3 delivers high performance on a budget. The circuit topology features common cathode class-A gain stages with no feedback, passive equalization, and cathode follower output buffers with constant current sink loading. Power is supplied by a regulated wall-wart driving a boost converter (running at about 50kHz) to generate the high voltage rail required for proper tube biasing.

Specifications

  • 44dB gain (1kHz)
  • 47k ohm input impedance
  • 1k ohm output impedance
  • +/-1dB RIAA accuracy (30Hz to 30kHz)
  • 10Hz to 600kHz bandwidth (-3dB)
  • 77dBA signal-to-noise (ref 5mV)
  • 30dB overload (ref 5mV @1kHz)
  • 5 x 7 x 1 inches

The Piccolo is an MC headamp that provides a linear pre-gain for your
MM phonostage. The active circuitry uses low noise matched discrete
JFETs in a no-feedback gain and buffer configuration, offering very low
noise and distortion. The sound is extremely neutral leaving no sonic
signature. Both loading and gain are adjustable, providing extreme
flexibility.
