Default 508 Phonostage on the way

I have replaced a stepper motor on my machine and the new one jogs the wrong way when I try and jog it.
How can I change the motor direction?

Edwardrergy, welcome to AA. I think you may have posted this in the wrong thread though, this thread is about the Boulder 508 phono stage. You may want to start a separate thread related to your problem, and perhaps clarify what the “machine” is you’re referring to.

+1 A phonostage with a solid heritage behind it. Did you have an opportunity to compare the 508 with famous 2008 from 10 years ago ($30k) or the new 2108($52k)?

I didn’t, I had only heard the 508 at RMAF and have not heard any other Boulder phonostages.

I had the ARC Ref Phono 2SE and the Boulder 1008 -- kept the 1008 and sold the ARC Ref Phono 2SE. They are both outstanding phonostages and there is no wrong choice, just that after a while, I decided I liked the dead quiet and total control of the 1008 better than the tube sound of the ARC. On first listen, I preferred the ARC.
