54 :shock: what happened? I'm with banerjba, my favourite components are British from the 1980's. If I deviate, I always gravitate back.

Nice find. True dual mono with it's twin power supplies. A cut above most in the day. I had a 730 and really enjoyed it. Pretty good phono stage too.

The KEF Reference 103.2 would be something to consider perhaps. Here is a pair on CAM now. They don't come up often, most keep long term I would think. My brother has the smaller 101.1 driven with a Sugden class A and an Audio Note TT with tube phono preamp ... Superb.

I will own another pair one day. I had a nice pair of Heresy 1 from 1975 a few years ago powered by a mid 70's Harman Kardon 730 Twin power. It was a great sounding system! (and the two pieces cost a total of $525). It was dynamic, wide open and quite detailed and transparent. I would like to try wi...

Hi Guys, thanks again for all the information and fine suggestions. There's a lot of know how on this site I must say. Anyway, I opened up the Sugden, removed the jumpers, cleaned the pins, switched some around rotating in the new set, etc. No difference. It's too bad, as low to low/moderate volumes...

You can try Unity Audio I think he is user cableguy. I had great dealings with him, he went above and beyond and made me a custom cable with 1 end rca and the other end a bnc at a fair price.


+1 Unity are nice cables.

from the net This photo is exactly my amplifier. Four white jumpers are circled, however there are two more (one per channel) just below. The configuration shown is for a MM cartridge at 1.7 mV or less. There are two sets (4) groupings of three pins (middle set and far right on photo) and one set (...

Hi Rip, the sensitivity pins are not bridged with the jumpers, as the Sugden manual indicate to leave them unbridged when used with an MC cartridge. The feature is available for MM carts at an output of 1.7 mV or less. I used them though with the HOMC DL-110 at 1.6 mV

Thanks kindly guys for the responses and good suggestions and ideas, appreciated. The sensitivity link is for MM carts (or high output MC) carts with a lower output than 1.7 mV. I had it "activated" with the Denon DL-110, having an output of 1.6 mV, and the increase in gain was an improvem...

I highly recommend contacting Lewis Frisch of Gotham Cables. I'm running Gotham throughout and it sounds as good or better in my system than any of the mid priced big name cable players for 10% of the price. YMMV, but it certainly works well for me :wink:

What sasquatch is eluding to, given the age of your Sugden, it is possible components or solder connections have degraded over time. Using a wooden chopstick (not metal) and lightly flexing the circuit board could expose a poor solder connection in which case it is off to the repair shop. And if yo...

Phono schematic.
Flexing components with a chopstick might reveal itself.
Well shielded short coax cable wouldn't hurt either.

Thanks Gary, but admittedly over my head! What do you mean? Cheers

Hello All, I've been enjoying my PJL tube stage for awhile now, but wanted to try an upgrade from my very enjoyable Denon DL-110. The PJL does not accommodate for low output MC cartridges, so I needed to put the very good Sugden A28ll integrated phono stage back into service whilst trying out the ne...
