I suppose it makes manufacturing less complicated

and probably less expensive...but it makes upgrades more difficult when everything, including the power supply is contained on one circuit board.

A few years ago I was considering trying a phono stage (not the Shiit) that was getting some positive press. I decided against it for the same reasons we're discussing here, because it was built with an external AC rather than DC supply.

I'd much rather have the option to do as you suggested, Lew, and build a high quality external DC supply, without having to cut traces, solder in jumpers, etc, likely destroying any resale value in the process.
