I second John Ellison on the AT. He and both run the low output ART7. It is far better in all respects than the low output Dyna XX2mk2 I used to run. The ART9 is, according to AT, similar in sonic character but with higher output and more dynamics/less subtlety that the 7. The only caveat I'd offer is to keep in mind that some users report compliance higher that the figure shown in the spec sheet. Hasn't been a problem for me on my HRX/3D 12" arm.
But the gain of my head amp is only 22.5dB, which is the lower limit for the output of the Art7.
If my calculations are correct, the 0.12mv input would result in a 1.6 mv output from the head amp which is below the input sensitivity of my phono pre (2mv).
I could turn up the volume but that would possibly introduce noise.
I'm leaning toward the ART9
I bought John's spare one.
