[SOLD] PhonoClone 3

Post by Mr Onion »

Having (finally) added a Urika to my LP12 I have my PC3 for sale. Its build and modification history can be seen in This Topic. In brief I have used quality components throughout, Kimber cable for all internal wire (excluding the transformer flying leads of course) Upgraded the op amps and output capacitors and the cases are mounted on 3 Oak Cone feet. The power umbilical has a flexible length of over 2 feet so placement should not be an issue. The transformer is a 120va unit, so massively over specified for the use its being put to.

Please see HERE HERE and HERE for further information.

Its a great PhonoStage based on the Lab 47 Phono Cube @ $2900 and is clearly better than a Dynavector P75, and fully configurable for (almost) any MC cartridge simply by changing 2 resistors per channel. It will come with 3 sets. Dynavectors 20 and XX as well as the 'as supplied' universal which just plug into the boards. If you have a cartridge other than these I am willing to make you a set of plug in resistors at no extra cost. All I wil need to know is the cartridge you intend to use. (obviously that will delay my shipping the units wile I obtain the correct values) I will also include the other op amps I have tried so you can experiment as well (if you wish)

The Phono Stage weights just under 3lbs and is 9.5" wide, 2.5" high,8" deep (including feet and connectors, not including cable plugs)

The Power Supply is VERY heavy and is 6" wide, 3.5" high,9.5" deep (including feet and connectors, not including cable plugs)

With all of the upgrades it has cost me a fortune in parts as well as hours and hours of labour and experimentation. It will come complete with the original instructions.

Serious offers around £500 £450 £405 + carriage/insurance at cost (about £30 for UK delivery) I will ship abroad but be aware it is set for 240v use only. If you are in a 120v area you will need to re configure the power supply yourself.

I also have Russ Andrews PowerChord @ £100 and pbj phono to din (for NAIM pre amp) @ £50 which you may also like to consider as that is how I have used the unit in the 4.5 years since I built it. (the Russ Andrews Links take you to the latest version of these items)
