Thomas Mayer New flagship Phono Stage – preamplifier

Thomas Mayer just revealed his new flagship single ended phono preamplifier. This new phono stage implements LCR phono circuit with an improved bias scheme. After some initial tests with D3a tubes, Thomas choose the fabulous Telefunken EC8020. As you can see from the pictures tubes are arranged in the center with the LCR RIAA modules between the two stages. This radically shortens the signal path and adapt it to the new circuit. Power supply on the left side follows already established design style and logic.
