Default Re: Sugden preamp WAL AC Farnell.

Very tempted to see how the the Sugden sounds as a phono preamp, or even a pre-preamp. However, no ground screw is present on the unit. Any suggestions as to the best way to go about remedying this, perhaps just as a temporary measure in order to see how it sounds.

There's no photo of the back panel in the set posted, but does it have a screw you could replace with a binding post, or with a thread sticking out and a terminal nut?

Thanks David.
The previous interior images 2 and 5 show a fixing for the mains cable.
Detaching the grey cover at the rear reveals the holding screw. Might there be a way to utilise this as a ground?
Back panel photos attached.
