    Telephones are 600 ohm balanced and it's why a mile or more of unshielded wire often running through electrically noisy environments can produce a fairly noiseless audio signal. If not in hi-fi terms, more than adequate for speech.

    Hi Figge!

    I think You are right in looking for vintage stuff since You want a good riaa. New preamps often have poor perfomance riaa's or lack them all together. The first question how ever is how much you are going to spend. I'm very satisfied with my new Luxman C-3, but it cost me 1700 euro. Luxman always has been known (with a few exceptions) to do nice riaa's so what was wrong with your old one? Sounded it bad or have you been infected with the upgrade-worm?

    Check out what goes in Japan. Vinyl has been and still is, a big thing over there.

    Regards

    yes i probably got that worm u mentioned! i dont want to spend 1700 euro but maybe 2 - 300, could go for one at 400 too but then its gotta be good. sold the luxman because...ehhm. dunno really! guess i thought it was too big to use as a pre-amp. and that interM REF-2300 "korea toy" did in fact sound more open than the luxman so i wanted to use that instead. gonna change the interm too. im thinking about some of the jbl amps! i guess they are fair price and good performance. (so iīve been told). well any suggestions on pre amp?. i found a crown psl-2 in an add, but 500€ is just too much.

    I have two Crown IC-150A pre amps. I might be coerced into parting with one. PM me if interested!

    Yamaha Preamps

    ... better look for a Yamaha C-2a, great linestage and excellent phono stage including MC head amp.
