Karma - Bugle 2 Phono stage

dromundsdromunds Posts: 7,313
Anybody need a phonostage? I got this here some time ago As a backup but going to move it along to someone who can use it as I never used it and it’s time for a karma. MM/MC. Extra resistors. Just say “in” and I’ll pick a winner. Over 100 posts conus.

    I’ll definitely be in, I don’t like having to use my Lafayette as a phono stage.
    Thanks!

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    These are fine sounding phono preamps.
    I'd be "in" but to say I need another phono preamp would be... well... fake news. :/

    I will offer prospective congratulations to the winner; he/she should be very happy!

    Lol, I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to that. :)
    But alas, tubes are another rabbit hole I can’t afford to get into, as I’ve said many a time. ;)

    Jesus H. C H R I S T - Afterburner - can you ever be courteous and stay on topic. If you want to blather on about "Family Affair" start your own dam thread! I get tired of your inane comments. You're not clever and you're not funny and most time you're posts are completely irrelevant to the topic.

    I had MORE of an endorsement but Ken edited out the fact that Mr H "borrowed" this preamp for an extended period of time and enjoyed it.

    and then lost, like a year's use of it when it was being held hostage in an undisclosed location in northern New England...

    Speaking of which -- here's a serving suggestion for the lucky recipient of the current, awesome Karma! :)
