The Robert Koda K 10 is now the best I have ever heard, but one must provide the best power cord (HFC Ultimate Reference Rhodium)and the best isolation (Star Sound Tech Apprentics platform on a good base.
I haven't heard a lot of different phono stages, but IMO, the Herron VTPH-2 seems to be the most uncolored unit. It is also very detailed and has excellent timing / transient coherence. Nice and natural dynamic snap. No stridency. I can find nothing wrong with it.
