Pioneer SA-8800 integrated amp, with both resistance and capacitance adjustable in the phono stage, very low distortion specs.
Haven't had time to give it a thorough trial, but everything works.

Cheers,
Alec

I've not purchased audio equipment since 1990 probably. The recording side to my tape deck broke .... maybe I'll look around for a tape deck since I have about 400 tapes or so in the attic.

... or maybe not.

I wonder which week is 'this week'?
If your Aries came with the metal cones replace them with the newer black rubber(?) ones. Makes a big difference. Next a flywheel.

Finally ordered a good (reviews & research say so - have yet to test) set of of headphones. Grado SR225is. Will be in for pick up at my local audio/home theater retailer here in Raleigh. http://www.audioadvice.com

Try to spend brick & mortar dough when I can.

Will be looking through forum content for recommendations/directions for amp purchase/DIY options.
