I found it to be noisy for a SS phono unit. Sold it after 2 months.

I have it and like it a lot. I haven't experienced many phono stages so I don't have much to compare to except a Decware ZP3 tube phono stage and I thought it was too noisy.
I had an Audible Illusions preamp with the John Curl phono stage built in. I don't have the AI anymore but the phono stage was fantastic. Thats why I went with another John Curl phono. The only time I heard any noise with the JC3+ was when I had the gain set incorrectly otherwise solid black back ground, no noise.
