THOMAS MAYER ULTIMATE PHONO STAGE UPDATE


This is Thomas Mayer's second build of the ultimate phono stage fully with the differential circuit, that implements Telefunken EC8020 triodes and all signal transformers and chokes in silver. The total count of silver parts is 20, that breaks down to 8 signal transformers, 8 plate chokes and 4 LCR RIAA coils.

But it doesn't stops there. There are 8 chokes in the signal chassis, being secondary to the signal path and are copper wound. These are 4 grid chokes and 4 cathode chokes.

Summing up, there are  28 transformers and chokes in the signal chassis. 12 of those are housed under the transformer covers on the top. 3 under each cover. The rest is mounted inside.
