Has anybody tried the Musical Fidelity M1 ViNL?

I guess this replaces their old kW phono preamp. It has instrumentation IC amps inside. Are they good enough now? It has a lot of capability for a very nice price. I would be using a LOMC cartridge with it mostly. How does it compare with other phono preamps?

I haven't tried it, but the below review came out recently:


As for the kW phono stage, an audio buddy really regrets selling that one. If the new phono stage comparable? Don't know. There is a difference between using some of the circuitry from the kW phono stage (a V-LPS claim) and actually building out a reference level phono stage with all of the goodies that make such things excel, like top-notch parts and power supplies.
