Audio Science Review

Review of the Muffsy Phono Preamp, with measurements.

The RIAA curve accuracy:

When you are a DIYer, you also have the option to buy a little extra capacitors and match them better to the ideal values. This unit I have does have better matched capacitors than would be expected from random choice. -1 dB was at 10 Hz and variations were within +/- 0.1 dB from 50 Hz- 20 kHz. Excellent result.

Five-star Review from Kaylyn

Well organized kit.
Kit is very well organized. I appreciate the resistors being labeled and sorted. 

Simple and thorough instructions. Would be a good project for a beginner. 

Component selection and quality is fantastic.

Five-star Review from Timm

Wonderful DIY Phono-Preamp, perfectly documented.

I see why there is a waiting time for this preamp - it is superb sounding, way beyond its price may suggest. The build guide is easy to follow and crystal clear. I built the PP-4 with the Muffsy PSU and it worked perfect from the beginning.

Shipping was blazing fast, I only can recommend the PP-4 and the matching PSU.

Five-star Review from Kevin

Excellent preamp and the service is fantastic.
Built the preamp with the power supply. Works first time no problems. Sounds great on standard settings but will adjust input impedance and gain for fun. The service from Skrodahl was excellent and very generous.

I highly recommend buying from him. It was great fun building the kit and very rewarding listening to my records through something I built.

Thanks for a great experience.
