Very flexible phono PCB
I am really looking forward to building this. The online manual and BOM show you how, very easy to follow. Supports a variety of component pin spacings so very adaptable. All in one or split EQ, support for ECC81/2/3 and also 85/88 with a jumper wire, series or parallel filaments, all very cleverly done for maximum flexibility. The PCB quality, through hole plating and screen printing are all top notch. Years ago I made a phono stage to a similar circuit which was point to point wired - it sounded great (totally blew the phono stage in my Leak Delta 70 away!), but it looked a mess. Now I can build a tidy version! I've gone for all in one EQ, ECC83 input stage and two ECC82s for the middle stage and cathode follower. Valve choice partly informed by Merlin's excellent book (buy it - gives you the knowledge to make good valve choices) and partly by what's in the parts bin :) Looking forward to hearing this one.
