I have had mine for over 6 months. It was used so I presume broken in by this time.
It is an extremely nice Phono Pre a far as I'm concerned. It does deserve good cables.
I had used it with a Denon DL103R it was very nice on the MC side with the 60 db of gain it worked fine sounded great, although I have heard a Bob's Devices Step Up is even better, BTW Bob uses the Jasmine in his set up.
Roth good to hear you fixed things!!
