new phono stage...Yaqin
English

 

Hi, the phono stage on my otherwise ideal Musical Fidelity E60 has gone intermittently half cycle, so it's time to replace / upgrade. Budget is pretty tight as this coincided with my eldest going to University! So has anyone tried the YAQIN MS-22B? Around £108 here, ($175) looks too good to be true, so it probably is, (I'm tempted as I've not had any valves glowing since my Rogers Cadet died), failing that any preferences or ranking for the NAD, Pro-ject, REGA entry models? I don't mind going "used" on a transistor amp. Thanks in anticipation.

All over eBay for around £108 looks too good to be true, so it probably is, (I'm tempted as I've not had any valves glowing since my Rogers Cadet died), on a more sensible note if the above is a no-no, any preferences or ranking for the NAD, Pro-ject, REGA entry models? I don't mind going "used" on a transistor amp.
Thanks in anticipation.
