Arcam Alpha 9 phono stage question

Hey all,

I have an Arcam Alpha 9 preamp, which has a slot for an on-board phono stage. Due to limited shelf space, I try to consolidate pieces whenever possible - an uphill battle to say the least.

I was thinking about spending the cash to get the upgrade phono stage for the Arcam. I don't doubt it will be a step down from my outboard phono stage I use now (a Musical Fidelity X-LPS) but I'm hoping it's not a huge step.

Anyone have any experience with the Arcam phono cards? It's the same phono stage that the Alpha integrated amps used.

Thanks in advance!
yes..and it is quite nice.
You won,t be disappointed at all when compared to the musical fidelity .
Thanks guys.

I ordered the phono board yesterday and look forward to hearing it (and getting rid of another component - consolidation is good!)
Where can you buy the phone stage module from?
