"Nice to hear someone else with a positive PAS experience"

Oh yeah, I'm not one of those PAS haters. As I said, I was certainly disappointed by a few simple PAS mods taking it past my ARC in performance, only because I thought the SP3-A-1 was still the Holy Grail of preamps.

I later did a full modification to another unit based on a two-part article in Audio Amateur called The Last PAS, by David Vorhis, who posts here on the Asylum on occasion. The modification was extensive, and really had nothing to do with a PAS anymore, except that it used the chassis, transformer, and a reworked circut on the stock circuit boards.

I've since bettered the phono stage, but the line stage of my Vorhis is still very, very good.
