Stumbled into a review of the phono stage on Positive Feedback:

THE CHARGE OF THE (BLUE) LIGHT BRIGADE...NOW THERE ARE 2 BLUE LIGHTS... 8)

This Minimax attack is too max, err...much. :lol: It has now eked its way in to my almost empty rack. Have to unload some prized 'own' assets in so doing. :lol: I feel challenged. Though not fully convinced this line stage will dislodge my 'username' in the preamp department, :D I am intrigued by its tube rolling possibilities and how 'max' it will go with my limited tweaking abilities. :D And so, while singing to the tune of 'Another one bites the max' upon its arrival, I have to follow it up with another tune, 'Let it Be Me'. It is 'I' who bit the 'max, once again. :lol:

Honestly, I don't think I can hear a difference. . . might need to do a serious AB though to be able to judge.For casual listening parang wala pa.

MINIMAX LINE STAGE - LITTLE DAVID READIES HIS SLINGSHOT... :lol:

Now that the new toy is in the rack, might as well shoot some pics. :lol: The unit is laughably small. Cute. In my teens I probably could lift it with 2 fingers. :D Measures a mere 4 inch deep by 11.5 inch wide.

Image

Tube complement: 2 ECC82s. No need for matched pair, as the right one the input and the left is a follower if I read the reports correctly, and 1 tube rectifier, 6X4.

Image

I love the huge, plump, round and voluptuous volume control knob. So smooth, and so much in control when my fingers turn it unlike the smaller Jadis knob ( I actually could turn it using only my index finger). :lol: It has 4 input selectors but at the moment I use only 1.

Image

From the side:

Image

I'm still in the process of burning in this line preamp, and occasionally I would switch to this from the Jadis pre to make sure that it is 'breathing'. And yes indeed it is. No critical listening so far. And no tube rolling as well. Honestly, I don't have the tubes yet. :D And I want to hear its character after maybe 30 hours but what I noticed is that is sounds real smooth after 10-15 hours and has the 'house sound' of its phono brethren.. :) Little David is preparing his slingshot for a big kill it seems. Let's see.... 8)
