without giving away "trade secrets" i can look at both pre-amps and do a review, i can give you topology but will not reveal the circuit. and then you form your own opinions after.

tubes are not that hard to figure out. the tono violin, judging from the tube compliments could very well be an iteration of the foreplay albiet with octals. the musika otoh have more tubes, so i guess it could very well be gain stage cum follower type but with more stages.

just a few minutes under the chassis, and one can figure out the circuit. the violin is more like a choice of parts, the musika i still have to see. ;D


i have seen both..... and listened to both side by side.....and to my ears, there are no differences that i can tell, they both sound fabuloso..... :D

Alam ko sa tranny lang nagkakatalo ang dalawang good sounding pre amp tube na ito at sa tubong ginagamit.  Pero kung pareho ang tubo at quality ng tranny gagamitin, siguradong di masyado magkakalayo SQ ng mga ito.  Heard the Tono way back 2005 i think from a friend.  1 week ko yata nahiram ito.  Musika naman kapag bumibisita ako kay Mang Rod.

the Musika i got was also modified by john p.......but i have no idea what was modified...i did not see he original Musika to be able to make a comparison..

the Musika has a phono stage, the Tono is only a line stage....

the Musika is so parts laden, ang daming piyesa, the Tono is a simple implementation of the Broskie CCDA, just like my small 6H23 line preamp at lower voltages.....

like my 6H23 line amp, there is only 1 cap in the signal cap in the TONO, the Musika had 3....
