Hello Curtis,

There are a wide range of options at an equally wide range
of price points (list price) from under $500 to over $10,000:


Esoteric/Rek-O-Cut Sound Re-Equalizer (under $500):
http://www.esotericsound.com/elect.htm
NOTE: You will need an RIAA phono preamp to use with the
Re-Equalizer.  If you already have a good RIAA phono preamp,
this might be a "good enough" and cost-effective option.


TDL 4010 (over $500)
http://www.tdl-tech.com/data4010.htm
NOTE: Bass and treble EQ can be operated independently; has
a mono mixer.


KAB Souvenir EQS Mk12 (over $1000)
http://www.kabusa.com/eqsmk12.htm
NOTE: You cannot operate the bass and treble EQ independently;
has a mono mixer


Vadlyd (formerly Elberg) MD12 (over $1000)
http://www.vadlyd.dk/English/RIAA_and_78_RPM_preamp.html
NOTE: You cannot operate the bass and treble EQ independently;
has a L or R wall selector, but no mono mixer


Millennia Media LPE-2 or LOC (under or over $10,000)
http://www.mil-media.com/LOC.html
NOTE: We used the Millennia Media LPE-2 at The Audio Archive
and are very familiar with this phono preamp.  Lacks a mono
mixer (the 1.5 dB steps are too coarse).  Was our reference
phono preamp until 2009.


Wavestream Kinetics Archival Phono Stage (over $10,000)
http://www.theaudioarchive.com/TAA_Products_Wavestream_Kinetics.htm
NOTE: We replaced the Millennia Media LPE-2 with the Wavestream
Kinetics Archival Phono Stage in 2009.


The above phono preamps will support preservation and access
projects.  I omitted phono preamps like the Graham Slee Jazz
Club:

http://www.phonostagepreamp.com/jazzclub-phonostagepreamp.htm

which would work very nicely for access projects, but doesn't
have a FLAT low frequency option for preservation work.

Tom and Eric,

What I have are large transcription discs recorded at a variety of radio
stations, mostly in Louisiana and Texas from the 40s through the 50s and
several that say reproduced at Sound Studios of New York, inc. Some state
lateral cut and are comprised of different materials.

I am still conducting research and seeking advice on these various discs
before any transfers take place; preservation and access is the ultimate
goal. Most are in good shape. For those that are not, I will out source the
work. I have looked around some, but would like suggestions for outsourcing.

Currently I have one Stanton D5127 for Model 500 Broadcast Standard Series 3
to 7 grams. I also have a Stanton 500.V3.  I will buy other cartridges as
needed.

The discs are recordings of Odis "Pop" Echols and the Melody Boys and the
Stamps Quartet, about 50 discs. Unfortunately, I was told many were sold for
scrap metal and others thrown out. I was able to rescue these recently
before they were also tossed.

I have 12 Norman Petty Trio Armed Forces Discs that are in great condition.

I have the Gordon McClendon Collection that it is in great shape and
consists of hundreds of various discs and tape formats. For example there
are about 275 16 inch discs. I have an initial inventory that an assistant
compiled. If anyone is interested, I can send it off line.

I have some extra grant money to buy equipment, so having some playback
options is also an objective. So, advice on cartridges and other needed
materials is welcomed.

Thanks

Hi Curtis:

What sort of material are you working with? Mono, stereo both? RIAA only,
pre-RIAA, both?
Microgroove, wide-groove, both? What's your cartridge type? What is your
goal in playing the records
(transfer, listening, both)?

Hi Folks,

I recently bought a Rek-O-Kut Rondine turntable and would like advice for a
preamp. I searched the
ARSC archive and found some references for used preamps on eBay, but I will
have to buy new. What
are the best preamps on the market?

Thanks,
