Project essential II in stock configuration. Not a bad table for 300. Have a bellari tube phono preamp with the headphone out coming in the mail. Then today found a Yamaha c-6 (pictured)at a thrift store for $25-. I got it hooked up and dialed in. It has two very nice sounding phono inputs and the headphone out is loud enough to play my HD-600s very loud at half volume, and could possible blow them at full. It's surprisingly clean sounding for used thrift gear. It's missing 2 nobs, however they're unnecessary.
I wonder the age of the preamp, as the best I can find is 1980-81. I haven't plugged my hifiman into it yet, but looking at the year it might be a great companion for a YH-1000. It has more power at the headphone jack than any of my newer tuners.Edited by JamesHuntington - 7/30/14 at 7:41pm
