Your Forever Phono Pre

WOW! I love everything about this PH 150 - design, functionality and, most of all, unbelievable sound. Great “out of the box” and really settles in with time and burn-in. Extracts every nuance from recordings without adding anything - and my collection includes all kinds of music - classical, jazz, classic rock, country, etc. Amazing soundstage and presence with exquisitely quiet background. I had great equipment before and thought I knew what it was like to have the musicians in the room with me - I didn’t realize what I was missing. Wonderful addition for my tube-based system and, I dare say this unit would convert some solid staters. Not an inexpensive unit by any means, but a comparatively fantastic value to boot at its price point. Bravo, bravo Dan and ModWright - and thanks to Mike at TG for helping me find my way there! My work is done! (McIntosh MC275 tube amp and C2300 tube pre, Tannoy Kensington GR speakers).
