Hi, is anyone here selling one? or do you know someone who is?
Thanks, over to PM.
I had one fitted to my old A85 which is a dealer fit (cost about £100 from memory-maybe more now?).
Having sold that, I opted for an external phono amp (the excellent Pro-Ject Phonobox Mk 2 at £50) rather than an on-board phono stage in my AV8. I partially did this for convenience as I didn't want to drag the AV8 back to the dealer, but also relevant (for me) is that using an external phono amp keeps the phono amp and processor separate, which arguably improves performance.
Have to say the Pro-Ject works very well, so may be best option for you-only downside is that you have to plug it in so you'll need a spare socket! You can buy it online or from your dealer at similar cost (about £50)
Well, I already have a Project phono box!! and it is the LE version (gold plated case and internal mods)... in fact, I do want to reduce the box count, and so I am looking to fit the Arcam card, anyone know where I can get one?
i will then probably put the project on ebay, unless anyone here wants it? lol..
PS thanks for the help.
anyone know where I can some cheap? ie. not an arcam dealer???
A quick look at the Sevenoaks Sound & Vision clearance section of the website under 'Arcam' shows that the Sevenoaks Kent branch is selling a brand new boxed one for £47.00. You can give them a call on 01732 459 555
M8, YOU ARE A STAR!! - THANKS!! now, anyone wanna buy a Project Phono box LE?
Foiled again, it seems that phono board #1 is for the alpha9 and it ilk, and not the A85. Oh well, thank you for trying, it seems I will have to pay the £110 asking price from Arcam..
