After the great results I got from the EC8020 differential phono stage, two more versions of that circuit will be built.
One will be a scaled up version with all silver transformers, but before that I am building it with the more affordable and less scarce D3a tubes.
It will share the same circuit concept but with transformers and chokes adapted for the operating conditions of the D3a which will be triode wired.
The same chassis layout is used and the same vibration damped mounting of each tube socket.
8 D3a tubes arranged in two rows.
Transformer coupled and fully balanced throughout and of course with 600 Ohm LCR RIAA EQ.
Stay tuned for updates on this new phono!
