OKay...I need some advice from someone who has ordered one of these before. I went to my local ratshack last week, and special ordered one of these, and I still have the recipt and everything. They said it would arrive in 5-10 business days. Well...today it has been 11 business days, and no phono preamp! My inclination is to go to the radioshack where i bought it and ask about it. What should I say though? Should I just give it another week or so and then go to the radioshack? Note that the ratshack that i ordered it at is quite-a-ways away from me, so I do not want to go there for nothing.

Um, ring them.

Say "Hello. I ordered something from you two weeks ago. Please advise of the status of my order".

They could be back ordered, or something.

Step 1: Plug power cable into wall. Step 2: Plug other end of power cable into....umm.... Step 0.5: Order something to power with power cable.

I'm more of a dog person really. Which could explain why I find so much humour in a cat stuffed into a glass.

Actually, no. It's a pretty good little battery-powered preamp, in the same league as the NAD phono preamp, and stands head and shoulders above the Sumiko Pro-Ject Phonobox. This is an easy recommendation for someone wanting a first phono amp. However, the model may be changing. I've seen reports on Audio Asylum that newer ones may have a plastic case...mine is all metal...so I don't know if anything else has changed.

Battery powered you say? Hmm perhaps I will look into one. In the past I have been shocked by the inherent crapiness of everything Radioshack and by the stupidity of their sales people (at least here in DC.) Remember the radioshack slogan: "You've got money; We've got pockets."

I have one, it's a good little unit, quite solid.

Unfortunately the 20 year old Dual Turntable died. Actually I killed it. The RCA jacks were corroded and I cut them off, and put new ones on...No Sound. I've done something wrong.

I need a new turntable anyway.

Update: They will ship mine out on august 8th. They are having a new company make them. (I hope it is the same model with the same electronics)

If it is not...I might rip a nasty hole in my wallet and get an OBH-8.
