I am looking for suggestions on what would be an excellent phono pre amp to match with a Parasound P/LD 1500 pre amp and a Parasound 1500A power amp. This is for a strictly 2-channel system for my Polk SDA 2B TL speakers and Rotel RCC 1055 CD player.
I just purchased the Parasound P/LD 1500 pre amp from a fellow PF member yesterday and will get it next week. I had been looking for a pre amp with a phone stage but I heard great things about the Parasound P/LD pre amps and decided to get the P/LD 1500 pre although it doesn't have a phono stage. So now I will need to get a separate phono pre amp.
I like to spin vinyl at least a few days a week so I would like to get an excellent phono pre amp. My budget is around $200 - $300 so please let me know if there are some good phono pre amps that would be within my budget. I think vintage is the way to go to maximize quality and cost.
I'd appreciate suggestions on what phono pre would be a good match for my Parasound pre and power amp and also would be within my budget.
