    I just scored my first MC cartridge - a Linn Asak, for peanuts - and now my phono preamp seems woefully inadequate (Pro-Ject Phono Box S). Way too noisy, not particularly attractive in sound, nor detailed enough.

    So I guess an upgrade is called for. Any recommendations for a phono stage under £500?

    System is: Linn Asak on a Thorens TF 160, Phono Box S, NAD 3020 as preamp and tweeter amp, and Nikko Alpha II as woofer amp, running Linn Sara 9s.

    Thanks!

    You won't do any better than the Arkless 640P which I make. Google it. You cannot try before buying though.
