I finally added a BUGLE2 page to the website. Taking pre-orders now with expected delivery in June. Many people had been asking how to get one of these since the Kickstarter project has closed. Here it is! All parts are in stock except for the translucent cases, which are supposed to ship this week.jh
When all is said and done, I regret not splurging on a large assortment of Vishay Dale RN resistors to obtain the noise figures of the Bugle2 Elite and perhaps even more accurate RIAA & channel matching. In fact, I do not think it would be too extreme to use Vishay naked foil resistors in this circuit.I also really think Jim should bring back the Bugle power supply. Once builders get a taste of what a wall-wart powered Bugle2 can resolve, the stock wall-wart really starts to feel kinda shabby. A plug-and-play power supply upgrade to the Bugle2 is worth considering. Pro-Ject did the same thing with their entry-level turntables and the power supply upgrade became the major "must-have" upgrade for folks on the upgrade path.
I put the can version of the OPAMP used in the Bugle2, into my original Bugle and can say it is leagues ahead of the original. I'd like to know just how much better the can version is because I don't suspect 627's could be an improvement in my case. Bass certainly is no issue. Clarity is off the chart.
As for the PS someone posted their Bugle 2 build recently and showed how the Jim's filter does an amazing job at smoothing out the power.http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/analogue-source/237627-hagerman-bugle-2-a-2.html
If I wanted to remove the Allen Wright time constant, which components would I jumper/change?
