Hi All! New to Audio Circle. Joined specifically for Tortuga Audio. Really interested in their take on passive preamps.
Music has always been a huge part of my life. I listen to vinyl mostly, but do stream Tidal when not “actively” listening (e.g., reading, working, cooking, ...).
My current system includes:
Rega P8 with Ania cartridge
PS Audio Phono Preamp
PS Audio BHK Signature Preamp
Lumin T2 streamer
Cary Audio SA-200.2 ES Power Amp
Ohm Walsh 2000 speakers
The BHK Signature has been sent back for service (less than a year old), which got me exploring passive preamp options. I am currently using a rather inexpensive balanced passive preamps to allow me to listen to records while the BHK is out of commission. If a “low end” passive can sound this good in my system, I can only imagine how great the balanced Tortuga will sound.
Currently in the research stage, but knowing me I’ll be taking the plunge in the coming months. You gotta love this hobby of ours!
