Boulder 1008, by Larry Deniston
My relatively new toy is a Boulder 1008 phono preamp. It’s a solid state unit with two balanced inputs and two balanced outputs. I’ve installed an XLR junction box on my turntable to facilitate the use of balanced interconnects from the turntable to the phono preamp. The Boulder comes with a pair of RCA to XLR adapters which I’m using with my second turntable. The second set of outputs is connected to a SugarCube SC-1 for click and pop removal. The output of the SugarCube is sent to a separate input on the preamp, so just by switching preamp inputs I can go back and forth between the outputs of the phono preamp and the SugarCube. The Boulder is dead quiet, tonally beautiful and dynamic. I’m enjoying it everyday!
