Gong to some lp's

I have audio research 600 looking to go to some lp's,
looking at audio research pre-amp ref. 3 any body
use that one?
The ARC REF 3 does NOT have a phono stage. Excellent preamp, but no internal phono board.
You'll probably get more responses in the Analog Forum. A lot of those guys have worked with a lot of phono preamps.
thanks got a audio phono amp,not getting any sound?
