Michael (Oregon), that is not a bad recommendation, though it is in poor taste to advertise in these forums. However, for full disclosure, you should also mention that Thor Audio
is in limbo at this time, just in case service is an issue.
I am using a ZYX UNIverse S-SB with a Walker Audio Signature phono preamp with very good results. I was able to get a great deal on this phono stage, at under $2K. I've heard and owned more expensive phono preamps both tube and solid state, but IMHO you can not beat this one at the price. They are rare and hard to find on the used market though, they were discontinued in favor of the twice as expensive Walker Reference phono stage.
As for what is out there NOW, I would probably take a good long look at this Klyne
phono preamp. I've always enjoyed Stan's work too, very close to Lloyd's.
I have no affiliation with the seller.
