Any suggestions?

I wish the little Belles had a phono input.

or Ebay/USA for quite some time (maybe a couple of years).

Saw it on OZ Ebay a year, or so, ago though.

Makes me wonder.

How much exactly is not super-expensive? This means very different things to different people. Less than $1K? Less than $5K? Also, do you need just MM, or MM and MC phono support?

It's on Victor's VK Music website @ $445.00 Elekits are an excellent value and virtually always musical.

Some server error message from our somewhat new Imac, that I do not grasp (the Imac) @ this point.

He does have current A'Gon ads, so perhaps you could try contacting him to see if the unit/model is still in stock.

I doubt that it is, considering that it has not been listed for sale for ages.

Did you try thru his website " http://www.vkmusic.ca/ " ? Victor usually responds fairly quickly and sometimes at length :<}

did not go through due to a server problem.

Probably something wrong on my end as I had the same thing happen in July/August of 2011 and just gave up/let it slide @ that point.

Since then I purchased the V-LPS on closeout ($99 shipped) and am no longer interested in the unit as the Foreplay/V-LPS combo in my setup preforms well enough.
