The Audible Illusions 3A with phono for moving magnet cartridges is about $900-$1200 used. If you get the John Curl moving coil phono section 3A, it will run you about $1400-$1600 used. This is a very good preamp and it took me going up to the TRL DUDE to want to replace it which was over $6500 new. You could also find an Audible Illusions 2D with MM phono for about $500-$600. Between those preamps, I was a happy camper for 24 years with no thought of replacing them. I only went to the 3A because I wanted to go back to a MC cartridge. No headphone section though.
