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

RE: I'm 95% convinced I want to change to a passive preamp. Thoughts?

Everything looks ok. My friend did the soldering with pro-grade gear and old-school silver solder with lead in it. I would have put the volume pot in at 90 degrees for wire clearance, but he had it all done before I noticed and didn't want to redo it.
I suspect the Sparkos might be the problem. I'm going to put in Burr Brown opamps and see if that works. I'd love to get it running decent and see how good it can sound. But at this point I am committed to replacing it regardless. Even with the mods it's still the wink link in my system.

The mods happened because the volume control was getting wonky and needed replacement and I figured if I'm already in there and I'm not happy with the sound anyway....

Mucking around the low-end since 1986.
