Thorens TEP 302 phono preamp

Has anyone had any experience with this ? At over $2000, it should be phenomenal but I cannot find much in the way of reviews online. Is it worth that price ? There are so many in the $200 - $2000 range it is difficult to justify that price.
I think the only ones I heard that justified (almost) their price was the Avid series of phono preamps.
Looks like a cheap circuit board with $50 worth of parts. I wouldn’t buy it on principle for 2gs even if it was awesome sounding. Look at the PS Audio phono or Manley Chinook etc.
