I have not heard the Decware but had a Eastern Electric in my system for a few years and had the opportunity to compare it with quiet a few other phono stages. I loved the EE and would highly recommend it, for medium output moving coil only. It did a fine job with higher output carts such as your Maestro but the real magic of the EE is when you use the MC transformers. With the output of your cart you would not be getting the biggest benefit of the EE, from my experience. With a lower output cart, ( 0.4-0.8 ) and tube rolling you need to go way up the list to equal it.
