JFET phono preamp-in a chocolate box
The finished jFET boozhoundlabs-Mongrel Dog Audio incarnation is "Gold". I dropped the whole cct. brd. into a very nice gold embossed chocolate box. The box is lined with bitumanised Al foil. It also has a clear plastic cover which covers the inside. The preamp can be run from of batteries or external power source.
This is by far the best phono preamp I have ever built. It is far superior to any of the others. Not that they were bad just that is so good. So very good and not just my opinion. Current draw is 13.5mA. Wirewarp wire is used as hook-up wire. Heavily twisted WWW (earth/hot wire) is used to bring the inputs and power in.
