In an acute attack of audio nervosa I ordered a Manley Chinook phono preamp today. It will replace my Soundsmith MCP2k II, which I have just sold on Asylum Trader. Had the Soundsmith for around 4 years and loved it but wanted to go to the next (hopefully!) step up. The Chinook will be used with my Soundsmith Zephyr star MIMC, which I also have greatly enjoyed.

While I've not auditioned one at home, I suspect you'll love it. I own and have owned other Manley gear and I'm a great believer in their products. With our local audio club (when still in San Diego) I've toured their factory a couple of times. A very dedicated and musically devoted staff and they do most everything in house so full design and build control.

a close friend snagged one for use with his Prima Luna tubed integrated, Sumiko Pearwood cartridge on his ProJect Xtension 10 tt. speakers are the Gershmann Acoustics Avant Garde. he is more than highly pleased with the results. it's likely that you will be also.
