McIntosh 2200 phono section?

Anyone out there using the Mac 2200 phono section? ST in Stereophile gives it a so-so rating. I have a Dual 1229 w/ Shure Type Vmr.
its superb.... SF never goes overboard for built in phono boards, even though the macs have been consistantly good for 40 years. the 2200 is one of the best
I, too, find the C2200 phono section to be quite good. It gets even better if you replace the stock Chinese tubes with some NOS tubes like Telefunken or Apmerex.
Great advice Jgiacalo. McIntosh is amoung the best. You might want to play with different needles, very time consuming, but the kind of fun I enjoy.
