made a couple sets of ic per jeff's place for my ic between stepup and phono stage and phono stage and csp3.

http://jeffsplace.me/wordpress/?p=11158

they sound pretty amazing with no hours on them!
i used the Switchcraft 3502AAU.... i like them much too.

these are the best ic's ive had for couple hours work and minimal $$.

have about 50-60hrs on these IC's now and they continue to impress.  they keep getting richer, warmer, and have very nice texture.  the treble extension is a bit reduced, but sounds more natural to me (if that makes sense).  yes, continue to like these and they've really taken it up a notch on my analog side!

i recommend building a set of these to anyone.  cost isn't crazy and only couple hrs work.  don't think you can get this kinda improvement any cheaper!

i'll report back after 100hrs.
