I’m assuming there aren’t a ton of vinyl heads on Hifiguides but thought I’d post this here anyway. I’m greatly intrigued on the quality and level of benefit I’d receive in adding this into my vinyl rig. It’s a $1600 Phono preamp which is a great deal more expensive than my $129 Schiit Mani. There are a few youtube and online reviews that are very favorable for this product and Darko mentions it a few times in his vids.
I just recently added a near TOTL cart to my Thorens TD 125 TT so looking for the next upgrade in my vinyl/analog chain. Just got the Grade F9e w/upgrade Ruby stylus.
I’ll be upgrading my speakers to the Swans M5A when their supply chain comes back online after the caronavirus. Thus now considering adding a phono upgrade and potentially a Schiit Freya+ tube pre-amp to the chain.
Any thoughts/experience with this product from Gold Note?
