Does anyone in the Audiogon community have experience using the Phono section of the Unison Research Unico (80w stock) with their analog gear. If so, how would you rate it sonically?
I'm considering getting back into serious analog (mostly jazz, accoustic and some classical). I currently own a Unico without the optional phono card and was wandering if the investment is better spent on a dedicated phono pre-amp (vs installing the phono card at a modest cost of $200).
I'm considering purchasing a VPI (used scoutmaster or aries) or rega analog equipment (used P7/9). I currently have an old vintage AR turntable with an Audio technica cart, which has not been used for years.
I'm currently using the Unico's phono section. I find it to be clean, resolving, and inkeeping with the sweet Unico sound. For a while, I was using an Antique Sound Lab mini phono in its place, but that didn't last.
