Phono Stage Question
Relatively new into the whole Hi-Fi Seperates (lifestyle - because that is what it's slowly becoming), I would like some advice using external phono stages.
Basically, I am looking at slowly upgrading/buying new kit and I have been told a phono stage would be a good place to start with. I only tend to listen to vinyl hence the lack of other seperates at the moment, so was wondering how much difference would I expect to hear purchasing a good phono stage rather than using my Yamaha AS-500s phono output .
Any replies would be welcome and please excuse if I have missed anything (this is a first post after all).
