Hello DR,

76 degrees here yesterday and looking to be about that for the next week. No new turntables since the Dual 1219. I'm still really diggin' what this old idler drive can do. But speaking of new, well new to me, I did find this at the thrift sore on Tuesday.
[Show spoiler]
It is a PS Audio preamplifier with original external power supply. I have it in my office rig at the moment'

Nice Score .................................

Did you get a chance to compare it to your other pre-amp gem ?

Thanks DR,
Yes I have and the sound is just as detailed as my Alternative Acoustic pre. The difference is a dramatic drop in background noise which I attribute to the external power supply. While not mine here is a pic of the pre and the power supply.
[Show spoiler]


I don't think they knew what they had since it was priced $69.

After checking out your prior post, I did a little web search and looked it up.

Nice score ........................
That's a very flexible unit you've got there ....... So now you have three pre-amps ?

Yes I do. The Carver C-1 is at home. It has been totally refurbished, new caps and resistors, and modded by a fellow Carver Site member. It's not going anywhere. The PS Audio 4.6 has my office so good there. The hand made Alternative Acoustics preamp can now get some much needed attention. I plan on modifying it so it also has a an external power supply. With those giant transformers in a separate box I believe it will shine even more.
[Show spoiler]
Just so you know, since I picked up these preamps at thrift stores and Goodwill, I have a little over $200 invested in these beauties so I'm good with three preamps.

That was an entry level automatic turntable ............ And frankly it's a shame it wasn't a Garrard model 30 + the one making it a 301 those go for a mint right now

I'm afraid that's too rich for the kid

BTW: Did you ever do a head to head comparison between the Carver and the P.S. ?

Morning DR,

What, no Power Ball?

Just briefly, but the numerous options of the C-1 keep it on top.

I see you've been dropped from the blizzard warning, keep warm my friend.
[Show spoiler] and a high of 81 degrees. It's a beautiful No Cal day.

Thanks B13, I like the retro look and wood case that matches my other gear.

Keeper! I took it apart and cleaned and lubed the mechanics and installed new belts. Makes my CDs sound silky smooth.
