Hope this goes in the right spot.. Im new here and receintly got back into vinyl and remodled a room thats a perfect listeneing room.. its 19x23 and has a nice 70 inch 857 sharp on the wall.. Audio is Bowers and Wilkins 685, front HTM62 center and 686's rear also a revel sub thats wireless.. O' and a marantz sr5007 receiver.. so the question... theres been a l lot of talk about phono pres and phono stages ,, tube or not tube,, cheap or not cheap,, so"" I have a new Denon 300f with grado gold prestige cartridge.. The denon has a built in phono pre as well.. So what I was thinking was to get my records playing close to the lever of other audio and inhancing the sound some,, I would like to pull out of my recording rig a Aphex 207D.. its a tube microphone pre and also a instrument pre.. Since the Denon already had the correct eq going on its pre I just keep that on and runleft and right to the Aphex tube pre and pad it down . Also switch to -10 on the output for comercial line level.. The front gives me gain control so I can add some tube gain to it and get it louder... So' is this a problem,, I dont see why this wouldnt work and it might sound pretty good since Ive already corrected the phono stage with the built in pre for the Denon.. Im just boosting the signal with a Tube pre.. This might also solve my problem that I want to run a longer length of cable...Well?
