I have two phono stages, a solid state one and a tube one. Solid State is a Primare R32 and the tube one is a Juicy Music Tercel II, I like both a lot. A little bit more than the budget here but not much. Both are usually used with one of Nate’s SUTs if I use LOMC. I also have an iFi iPhono2 with a big linear power supply that’s really nice but I haven’t used it in awhile and actually I’ve not been using any of them for a bit as I like the phono stage in my Luxman L507u integrated and it’s just kinda nice not having an extra box around.What did you settle on?
