    Muffsy Phono Preamp PP-4 question/help

    Im here to discuss two different topics. 1. I’m hoping that we can have some measurements taken of the Muffsy PP-4. 2. I’m having an issue where mine started popping and making noise, I believe only in the Left channel. It worked for about 2 years without issue, then started doing this after...

    ORTOFON ST-7 STEP-UP TRANSFORMER REVIEW

    I just got this stepup this week and thought I would post some comparative measurements with it in use/not-in use. It is a mid-level one in Ortofon's offerings. Still expensive! Weird pricing, Euro 899 via Ortofon or I could get it locally for A$700-800. Stock pics: I wanted to use it for my...

    Phono preamp with USB output recommendation

    Hi all, I will soon release a new Roon Extension (part of rooExtend) to playback audio from (hopefully all) USB audio interfaces via Roon and its DSPs. This will also enable playback from a turntable via a phono pre and a USB ADC. I am here to ask you for a recommendation that I can give to my...

    DIY Phono Pre Suggestions

    Good day all. Pretty self-explanatory really, any suggestions for an acceptable DIY phono stage? I tried to order the Muffsy kit but alas, Brexit/Covid related issues mean they aren't sending them to the UK. Preferably nothing requiring proper engineering prowess, as this is one of many areas...
