I had it off for quite some time as I was trying different tubes. I just gave it a good cleaning and replaced the cover but without the screws for easy removal.

I ask because one owner had mentioned to me when he had his lid off the phono stage was very noisy. Did you experience any extra noise with the cover off?

none whatsoever. I had a hum issue with MC cartridges that turned out to be a placement problem. Cover on or off made no difference in sound.

Add-on question :D , I roll the tubes in my Chinook from time to time ..... I'm curious to the correct thread size of the 6 little bitty phillips screws that attach the mesh cover. I'm trying to find some little-bitty knurled-knob screws to serve that purpose?

What a great idea !!

I'm a tube roller also, and could benefit from that as well. Thanks for the thought !
