Im a few days in on this now, and have put a new set of batteries in, and all i can say is wow.
If you ever see one of these come up, i definately recommend it. i may well keep an eye open for the 980lzs Low output MM that it was designed for.
Playing through this little head amp has made a dramatic difference to my system. Firstly everything is more defined, you can really hear the seperation between the instruments, which must be due to the low noise floor of being battery powered, in the initial stages of gain. Secondly bass seems to have tigtened up a bit and treble is crisp, possible tamed a little by the valve amp, and that maybe through solid state gear it would be a little too sharp. Lastly its just the sense of space that it gives music. People quite often state "it sounds like the artist is in the room" and i never really beleived this could be the case, however, i can certainly get a sense of this on my system with the addition of this little head amp.
to date i think this has been the single most impacting addition my system i have made.
again, if you happen accross one like i did, i would snap it up.
