Okay guys, I just got done building this preamp for my turntable setup after doing some research and hearing it's supposed to sound really good for the money.
Only cost me about $55 including parts I had to re-order, but without a case, which I plan to make soon. I did some A/B'ing between this and my previous preamp, a Pyle Pro POS. These were recorded using my netbook, so don't expect amazingness.
My question now has to do with the "hissing" in the treble. I currently have a Sure M92e, which I calibrated a long time ago. Should I look at re-aligning the cart or look for an upgrade? I would be looking for something under $100, with a neutral to slightly warm and sweet sound signature if I upgraded.
Also, does anyone have any recommendations for a cheap and cheerful way to keep my records clean? right now I'm using a microfiber cloth and compressed air...
