Great phono preamp. Definitely benefits from recapping. I run this unit with 2 ea. HF-50 Eico mono blocks into a pair of Klipsch Belles and the sound is fantastic. Make sure you have a good ground between the preamp and the turntable to eliminate any buzz or hum.

Thanks for posting these manuals! Very helpful!
