I've got an itch to try a phono upgrade - thinking of trying a new phono pre as I'm using the built in phono of my Musical Fidelity A5 Int amp - which is pretty good.
My budget is about $600. Could be new or used.
For new, I was looking at the following:
Right at the limit of my budget
* Musical Surroundings - Phonomena II
* Creek OBH-15 MkII
A little below my budget
* Project Tube S
* Grado PH-1 Phono Preamp
Should be selectable for impedance and capacitance for playing with different carts.
Any others I should look at?
I'm currently using a Technics SL-1200mkII and a HOMC Denon DL-160 which I really like.
