which tube phono preamp should you choose??

Here's a description of the differences between the PH14 and PH16 . . .
The PH14 is very good, a clone of the famous EAR834P. (discontinued by manufacture many years ago, priced at $2500).
Has a very classic vintage sound, kind of mellow, sounds great but not as transparent and revealing of detail

On the other hand, the PH16 is as good as it gets, very transparent, very revealing, not mellow but not clinical like a SS phono pre.
Much better separation and definition due to dual mono power supplies, and also super quiet. Compare to an ARC PH5 at $2500.

Also available, our premium grade PH16 phono preamp.
