Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.


Sorry about the small details. You can really zoom in on the picture though.

This the system with noise floor with preamps running, turntable attached via adapter cable, arm sitting in rest position, motor shut off, system gain set so a reference signal from my denon test disk sits around -10-12dB. The 651Ps got to 2X Millenia HV 35P's which feed a MyteK Stero192 ADC.

It's not as if noise is bad like this. It just doesn't buy me any performance over running two 651P's in single ended configuration into the mic premap intrument input. It's an identical picture, but I can eliminate these crummy wye cables I cobbled together.

Noise wise these 651'ps rock. It's just that this so called balanced configuration isn't buying me anything I haven't been able to get to get from them via simpler configurations.
