    Default whats with the no phono stage on the integrated's now

    This is one of my biggest pet peeves with integrated amps now. So many dont have a phono stage and I dont want this extra phono amp adding more bulk to my system

    Two things. One, to save money, two, there are a lot of pretty good reasonably priced phono stages out there today. Far more than only a few years ago. Why make a digital guy pay for a phono stage, and why provide one for a guy who will probably buy an outboard unit anyway.

    That is today's market.

    Haven't you heard? Vinyl is dead. Nobody listens to records anymore, so why waste chassis space with a phono stage? CD's and mp3's are so much better than vinyl for their clean sound.

    I'm just glad I've got a couple of Carver C1 preamps that have excellent phono stages. It's nice having seperate inputs for MM or MC cartridges.
    Lots of Carver stuff and a pair of LSi9's

    I'm thinking that they disappeared shortly after the "8-Track" selector switch.
