RE: Todd hears things most of us can't ;-)

If you're talking about the cheapie cables in my last photo, I would agree. Those are coming off the back of my stock SL-1200mkII TT. My other TT is a highly modified SL-1200mII from KAB with quality RCA phono jacks, fluid damper, tonearm rewire, and a few other tricks. You'll see better cables with that TT in the other pics.

But none of this changes the fact that the EAR 834P suffers from a pair of junk internal SUTs that are crammed into it's tight chassis. I know of others who run this phono in the way that I do using it in MM mode with an external SUT. The improvement is huge, not in a tiny audiophool nitpicky way but very obviously noticeable.

This is not the case with all phono preamps that I have owned but the external SUT helps a LOT with some that can't seem to do MC right.
