I have found that a SUT + internal phono stage sounds better than just the phono stage alone.
I'm not intimately aware of that venerable thirty five year old design. I recall reading the tribulations that inmate Bambi went through to get optimum performance from his SP10.
It seemed to be very picky about tube choice in the phono section. I ended up using Amperex 7308s in my SP9 MKIII as well.
a few months ago, complete with a set of new EH 6922 tubes. I have a large supply of Amperex 6DJ8 and Siemens 7DJ8 and assorted 7308 tubes. Same tubes are used in the AI Modulus preamps (I have a M3A), another design that is sensitive to tube choices.
Once I get a handle on the sound of the SP10, I will start tube rolling.
