I need help.

I need a headphone amp and a phono preamp for my Jolida 1501RC. Does anyone here have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

I'm assuming you want a tube headphone amp since you own Jolida. The inexpensive route is two fold. First get an Antique Sound Labs MG Head DT OTL - though they have newer headphone devices cheaper so you may want to try one of those.

The phono stage...$29.99US from of all places Radio Shack. It's affectionately called in audiophile circles the "Little Rat" It requires a 9v battery to run...and many consider it as good as multi hundred units from NAD etc. You will see a lot of discussion on the high end forum Audio Asylum. I have one and it lives up to the hype IMO. For $30.00 you can't go wrong.

I purchased a Antique Sound Lab HB-1.
