Yet another phono preamp . . . sigh.

I've sold three phono preamps over the years that i almost instantly regretted selling. They are the Hagerman Cornet 2, the EAR 834P and the Musical Surroundings Phonomena II.

I've been able to correct one of those lapses in judgement by purchasing the phonomena II+.

I'm using the same make/model of cartridge (Dyna 20XL)
and the same turntable as I was with the previous Phonomena and, to my ears, i can't tell them apart.

Bass weight and authority are a notch above my other pres and extension and detail on top are a bit better as well.

Given the gain/loading flexibility this preamp offers, I think I have a keeper.

And, thankfully, the Blue LED on the II+ has been dimmed from the laser beam of the II.

Opus 33 1/3
