Eastern Electric MiniMax Tube Phono Preamp MM only
« on: May 01, 2008, 09:57:29 AM »
Hi Guys,
 I have a used MiniMax phono that one of the step up transfomers is bad so this phono stage will only work with a MM cart or a Hi output MC cart only, you wouldn't use the MC section with a high output cart anyway as you would plug into the MM 47K load input .
 $750 shipped to your door in continental USA. This really is a fantastic phono stage and I guarantee you will be thrilled with its performance.It will carry the full 2 year warranty but just not on the MC section.
 By the time Alex Yeung (designer)would send me a transformer and the man hours to install it as it would be time consuming I think it is just best to sell as a MM phono only.

 Thanks,
 Bill

Wow... This is a truly excellent phonostage... one of the more 'special' pieces of audio gear in the hifi world I've encountered.  I'm tempted, Bill... ;)

If I didn't already have a Minimax phono, Bill's offer would be enough for me to switch my cartridge to MM just for this deal.   It really is an excellent phono stage.
