I am in totally unfamiliar territory and need some expert advise.
I am currently looking for a nice used phono preamp.
I am considering the following and wanted some direction on which way to go....
Carver C-1 (I can get one for about $100 used)
Cambridge 604P ($ 169.00 new)
Pro-Ject Phono Box ($65.00 on e-Bay)
Are the all similar in quality? Wouls one stand out over the others?
Which one would sound good with a Grado cartridge.
I am trying to stay under $200.00 and I am well aware of the higher end models. I would love a Graham Slee but I just can't afford it now.
Any help recommendations is very greatly appreciated.
And BTW no TCC or Pyle or DIY kits please.
