    EMT JPA-66 MkII

    Does anyone have any information on this unit? All I could find was this from Tone Imports.

    Hi Bruce,

    Jim has two of them. Not in yellow however. You can email or PM him.

    You can also contact Jules directly. He's a nice guy.

    There is a discussion over at Audio Exotics forum about it. I also talked to Patrick Kennedy about it, who has one in his system, and he seems to like it quite a bit. Certainly an interesting unit. It's a full - function preamp, BTW with an excellent line stage.

    This is a wonderful Tube Phono Pre and Preamplifier, very musical and full of options for the "advanced phono afficionado".
    I run it with four inputs.

    Wow what a beautiful website you have there

    How good is the line stage in it, will the line stage alone compare to the top line stages, and does it have more impedance, high current to drive SS amps?

    Bonzo75, thanks. The line stage is excellent and does compare with top line stages. You may drive SS amps pretty well. See the posts listed under the categories: phono preamp, preamplifier.

    Soundwise this phono is awesome. So very natural, musical and "live." Excellent tone of vocal and acoustic instruments to my ears. The sonic presentation is further back not majestic. I dont know which is more real farther back or closer up front depending on preferences. However it presents, the realism is extraordinary. Four inputs. Gains are different in each input. I could only use input2 for my low output cart to not really cranking up my volume knob. The other inputs probably need higher output cart like 1mV or a stepup.

    **Revise** Once put eq. switched from flat to var and adjusted the turnover, the stage or presentation move up and sound became fuller.

    Kind regards,
    Tang

    Tang,

    How would you compare this with the CH P1? I am contemplating one of these as an upgrade to my AR Ref 2 phono.

    Thanks

    I have heard both
    The ch is better

    But the Jpa has 4 inputs and variable riaa, and very very good natural and quiet

    If you have old jazz or mono makes huge difference

    You can get variable eq module for ch but limited selection
