        I visited BH store to get PA1.2 after trying to set up my system for too long.I was using my Onkyo's phono input for my TT and just not getting my records sounding right.Good thing that i suspected where the problem was.I got back home,connected pa1.2 with same settings I had when I left-and my jaw dropped on the floor:)Sound is just amazig, such an improvment, I'm stunned and still in awe.Finally I can hear a bass player pluckin' each and every note and mids and highs are now superb.Silent as it gets.I have finally experienced blackness in vynil sound.Could't be happier, and it didn't even brake in...

            Comments about Music Hall PA1.2 Phono Amplifier:

            You simply cannot get a better-sounding RIAA preamp in this price range. I've been A/B testing it against my several-hundred-dollar homemade tube preamp and, while they certainly sound different, the PA1.2 holds its own. It's fairly crisp and clean and flat and lets the vinyl just shine through without messing with the sound too much - just what you need from a solid-state preamp.
