Rens Heijnis custom-built audio equipment
A few examples of various custom-built equipment
Phono pre-amplifier, battery powered with different equalisation curves.
Due to the fact that most records made before 1950 may not have followed the RIAA curve.
Turn over curves: 200, 250, 300, 400 ,500 (RIAA) and 700Hz.
Roll off curves: -5, -8, -10,5, -12, -13,7 (RIAA), -16dB.
Ri: 10, 100, 16K and 47KOhm. Gain: 62,70 and 78 dB. Very low noise and hum due to the battery power,
Reference from the customer:
"It is amazing, no hum, very low noise, good
sound-stage and well-balance sounds".
