    Actually, I have the Fishers to re-tweeter, and have to decide on the EPI goldrings or the (recently acquired) Radio Shack dipoles.

    I don't have any genuine Shiit hooked up to be honest.

    Always learning!

    Schiit Mani

    OK - a buddy brought over his new Schiit Mani Phono Pre the other day just to compare to my Cambridge. Have to admit for what it cost it is a nice little pre. Yes there was a difference, a bit lacking on the bass but not muddled. Handled the mids very distinctly, a lot of detail. The highs were a bit bright but again detailed. I probably would have been happy throwing this on my system at first without hearing the Cambridge but I do like the Cambridge a bit more. For the money I would say the Mani is a good bet. You do have to play with the switches a bit depending on your cartridge, had to crank it to about one o'clock to reach the listening level at 11:00 on the Cambridge...not sure why.

    I had the same issue when I got my Mani. Fiddled with the switches some and got the gain boosted to the next level. My rooms a fairly damp (not bright) environment so it's working good for me in there. Tuff to beat for the price!!
