Ming Da MC767-RD Tube Phono Stage

I am in the market for an inexpensive (sub $1,000) phono stage for my office system. Poking around on E-bay I stumbled across this unit made in China.

Is anyone familiar with it? From the photos it appears to be nicely constructed by I can't dig up any reviews or comments on the unit.

Thanks for the comment. I am using an Aloia preamp in my office system and I am quite happy with it. Unfortunately the phono card is functioning erratically and it's easier to just pick up an inexpensive phono stage. I'm not looking to replace the preamp.

The best piece going (and made in the US to boot) for anywhere near that price is the wright wpp100c. I have heard and played with the mingda- it has some issues, bad hum, grounding problem ? hard to say. cheaply built. I was not impressed - it seemed about like most of the gear from china these days - much about looks, little about quality control. ASL is the only decent chinese brand I have seen and heard so far. Opera/Consonance has some decent looking/sounding stuff too but not sure on phono.

Thatis the correct web address.Sorry for the error.You will find few posts about them in Audiocircle com(market square)
There is a review about Audcom 120 pre amp recently in audiogon.(329$)
If we go to walmart a good perentge of them are from China.
I ordered one and sent to to bolder cables for upgrade.
It comes with phono.The upgrade is fro rewiring, capacitor and diodes etc.(250$)
Thanks for the feedback!

I was offered a great deal on a new Coph Nia so I decided to play it safe.
