I knew somebody else would say it better than I could.
I am actively seeking out piano, violin, and guitar music these days.
By the way, "The Gloaming" is a great CD, with "Doveman" Thomas Bartlett on piano. [YMMV, in that not everybody likes the same music.]
Someone - I believe it was you, Mick - mentioned that anything phono-related might not be the place for the GC ICs, since they are not shielded.
Would anyone care to opine as to whether they might work from phono preamp to preamp? Is shielding essential in this application?
I think you'll be fine from phono stage to line preamp. I probably should have said...in my experience, shielded cables have always been necessary from the turntable to the phono stage or SUT. In the case of an SUT, yes, shielded again from SUT to phono stage. When leaving the phono stage, however, you should be good to go with an unshielded design.
Thank you, Mick. I appreciate your kind response.
I just purchased another pair, this time the one meter length, for the job above.
I'm happy as a clam.
I'm debating a second pair myself.( DAC to pre-amp) Congrats.
Since I downsized my system, I only need one pair between the SACD player and the Integrated amp. :) Now had mine in about two months--absolutely no complaints. A very good, final upgrade.
I was all-set to audition the new IC in its place in the final section of the phono stage.
Alas, my LP-12 will spin no more. Time to upgrade the original motor supply.
Fortunately, I have a spare DD TT (Technics SL-1500 Mk2) to bring into play, literally. One's gotta do what one's gotta do.
