RE: My New Toys

This preamp replaced a Modulus 3A which also had the John Curl low output phono board. The ZU/Denon cartridge only has about 60 hours on it and I have had it in my system since 2009. I just don't play that many records any longer as I have a very expensive Esoteric multi-format player and also a dedicated laptop and Wyred dac.

I like the way the ZU/Denon sounds with my older rock recordings and I find the sound of my analog rig good enough for the amount of time I use it. I thought about replacing the cartridge with something different but it would have cost me a lot more money. In the future, if I upgrade the turntable, then I will buy a more expensive cartridge. The Denon SUT does it's job and I am getting zero hum from the setup.
