RE: Looking for phono stage recommendations....tubes!

Posted by SpotcheckBilly12345 on January 11, 2017 at 09:20:02:

Another solid recommendation for the EAR 834P.

I have the mm model and use it with an Auditorium 23 standard SUT for my DL-103's.

I didn't opt for the mm/mc version of the 834P because, IMHO, its step-up transformers are not quite up to snuff. If you're going to exclusively use a mm cartridge the standard 834P is all you'll need. Add a quality SUT if you decide to go mc.
