Does the amp still function if tubes for the phono stage are removed for those that only play CDs?


Answer:

Even if you don't use the phono stage, it is recommended that you don't remove the phono stage. Removing it could result in shortening the product's life. Removing the phono changes the voltages of the other stages.
