Le Pacific Preamplifier revisited
Some ideas, how this popular phono preamplifier might be enhanced in performance at very little costs
Components used in the older projects such as transformers, transistors or operational amplifiers may be obsolete
or outdated. The older projects are meant to provide information.
MM / MC battery powered Phono Preamplifier
This battery powered preamplifier was my very first DIY phono stage and was built in 2000. Drawback is the
limited operation time due to the small 9V batteries.
MC phono preamplifier Il Trovatore
The Il Trovatore was built in 2013 and I replaced it in October 2019 by the above Memphis MC 1. Today I see
the combination of the MC step-up transformer with the two 2SK369 input jFets critical.
IC based power amplifier
This IC based power amplifier is a rugged all-purpose work horse, ideal for pop or rock music and discos -
not truly “high-end“ but 99.9% foolproof. I use it frequently since 2006 and it never failed.
Tube Power Amplifier 2 x 50W
The tube power amplifier was built in 1994 and served me well until I replaced it by the above single-ended
