lamm pre/phono amps vs. placette passive units

need help in deciding which way to go!!! amps are Tenor 300 hybrids and speakers are kharmas with a Walker turntable...value neutrality, musicality and ease of use. thanks in advance for all inputs!
I think the man to talk to is Mike Lavigne, he uses all of the products you mention except for the Walker.

Are you Sirius?
"value neutrality" then choose placette
"ease of use" choose placette 126 step remote volume control
The Placette, in the configuration you are using, is the better combination sonically. The big plus is also the remote control.
