Best Tube Preamp with Phono under $2000 ?
What is the best tube pre-amp with a MM phono stage under $2000?
I have been looking at CJ ET-2 and McIntosh ; theyare both in the 4K-5K range.
What is the best "value-for-money" tube pre-amp in the 2K range that includes a decent phono stage?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
