    Headphone amp for Jolida 1501RC
    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.

    Let us know what you think. It looks like a funky unit.
