    Default Recommend a Phono Stage

    Having trouble picking out a phono stage to pair with my Dodd MLP, Sumiko Bluepoint EvoIII and the Yamaha PX-3 turntable I run as my table of choice. At first glance, I like the Simaudio LP110, or the Rogue Stealth, but I am literally clueless on what direction to take here.

    Any input would be most helpful.

    I have, but I don't want a battery operated device. We were unable to work out the details for having one installed inside the MLP.

    Love my Bottlehead phono stage. Fun project to build as well. Eros is the latest model I believe.

    I am looking for something with a bit more instant gratification than waiting for hell to freeze over... lol.

    That's pretty much been the story with Bottlehead since day one. They are very up front about the fact they don't source/buy components until they have "x" amount of orders. It will be worth the wait.......

    If I were shopping for one, I'd look at Lehmannaudio. The Decade is priced like the LP110.

    I hope you're right. I check the delivery update page daily. The reduction is the only one that doesnt update!
