This is the best phono preamp I have owned, but it's just not getting enough use to justify having it on the shelf. I didn't build it, but I am passing on the info from the original owner. This is a MM preamp only, and includes a mono/stereo option. Built into a pre-finished Lansing enclosure. Has upgraded internals, including Auricaps, Vishay foil resistors in the signal path and PIO caps (wrapped in electrical tape to prevent shorting). Regulator tube is a NOS Bendix 6106 (labeled National Electronics 5AR4 - $100 tube from Tube Depot). The 12AU7 is a NOS Raytheon JAN 5814 and the two 12AX7's are new Groove Tube GT12AX7 Golds. This link is a review of this build:

I have a Cornet II, not quite as nice and I went through 5 tubed phono stages before picking this.  This is a deal.

Thanks ... this is a really nice example.  The new owner will be happy with it, whoever that ends up being!

Cornet2 is awesome phono preamp. I built one and also have the Bendix Rectifier and Amperex NOS tubes and this baby makes incredible music. Hagerman knocks it outta the park with this one, and not necessarily at this price point. It is a great match in a high end system.
