tube preamp needed

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by klem kedidelhopper, Oct 28, 2012.

  1. A customer just brought me in two home built tube amplifiers for
    evaluation. These are really nice custom built units with KT88 outputs
    that were built by a gentleman who passed away. My customer needs a
    late 50's or 60's vintage tube preamp with an RIAA low level input to
    use these properly and also to run his 1970's vintage turntable with
    magnetic cartridge. Does anyone have a nice old tube preamp that would
    complement these amps that they would like to sell, or know where I
    could find one? I really don't want to get into a bidding war on Ebay
    with 15 people. I'd just like to find something, mark it up a bit and
    make a little money in the process. Thanks, Lenny

    The Dynaco PAS series is generally considered a reasonably good tube
    preamp, especially if modified appropriately. Here are a couple web
    sites you might check: http://dynacotubeaudio.forumotion.com/ and
    http://www.audioasylum.com/forums/amp/bbs.html Note that the latter has
    "for sale" ads. Good places to inquire further, as well.

    Good luck!
