'Open' sounding phono stages.

Recommended Posts

G'day all, since improvising a proper shield for my DIY P06 phono stage in here yesterday, I've realised what an 'open' sounding phono stage it is.  To be honest I have noticed this before but never so much on the P06 in here until now.  It's made me realise that most (but not all) of my other phono stages do sound 'slightly' compressed in absolute terms.  Anybody ever noticed a similar thing (or otherwise) with their own gear?  Regards, Felix.

My AudiaFlight phono stage is probably the most open-sounding Ive heard.  It was immediately noticeable when I first got it.

 

Downside is that it doesnt hide anything - everything is out there for you to hear, the good and the bad.

You've confused me, Felix.

 

I believe you've always put the P06 forward as your best sounding phono stage:

  • so was this when it was not inside a shielded case?
  • and now that it is ... is it more open-sounding ... or not?

G'day mate, sorry to confuse, well it was shielded but not totally!  It is now and that full shielding seems to 'help' noticeably overall.  Regards, Felix.

Interesting!  :thumb:  So now that the P06 is fully shielded ... it sounds better than it used to?

 

I've never had a non-shielded phono stage but maybe the 'open-ness' of the P06 - compared to your other phono stages - is due to the circuit?
